Cretan Adventures hiking in Crete Greece


 Crete - Climate

The climate of Crete is temperate. Rainfall is rare during the summer months. Autumn is Crete's mildest season, when temperatures are often higher than in spring. The winter is fairly mild and tolerable. Snowfall is practically unknown to the plains, but quite frequent in the mountains.

The ideal months for hiking in Crete are April, May and June, as well as September and October.

The conditions are quite warm for swimming in the sea (in April only for brave swimmers) but on the mountains there might be a chance of storm and rain as well as cold weather.

Summer in Crete can prove to be hot for hiking, however the suggested routes are on lower elevations on seaside areas, valleys and gorges, where summer conditions prove to be wonderful due to the fresh sea-breeze and the opportunity for a quick swim during the hike.

In the mountainous regions of Crete the weather is always cooler.
