Our course begins from the village of Agios Ioannis Sfakion (745m). From the square of the village we head to the beginning of the path, which starts uphill in a big pine forest. Arriving at its highest point, we have a view of the sea in the area of Agia Roumeli village. Then we go downhill and we find ourselves in the cave of Kormokopos (1060m). On the way back we climb to Papakefala peak (1.750m), with a wonderful view of the Libyan Sea and the southern coastline of Sfakia. Finally, we return back to the village where local traditional food and homemade delicacies will be waiting for us.
I am Stelios. My friends call me 'Bouranis'. I am from the mountainous Cretan villages of Agios Ioannis Sfakia & Koxare Agios Vasilios. I was born and raised in south Rethymno. I have made hiking adventures all over Crete and I love nature-centered travels. I believe there is a separate bond between humans and mountains. As a Mountain Leader i know a lot about the local paths around west Crete and the E4 hiking path of the island. I also have a great idea of animals, plants, culture, local food and Cretan dance. Come with me to discover the Wild Crete!

Let me know if you don't have mountain equipment (boots, baton, bag and jacket) so i can give you or rent from the local shop
The forest village of Agios Ioannis at Sfakia province is the starting point of the most beautiful and best marked trails of Chania prefecture. The Kormokopos path runs at an uphill route through the dense forest for about an hour until you reach the highest point of the route with the great view. The word Kormokopos means place where trees are cut, due to the dense forest of the area. The Papakefala peak is hidden inside the pine forest.
