Mountain Shelters in Crete

The mountain shelters of Crete, warm and hospitable, are intended for the weary hiker or traveller.

They are perched like eagles' nests high in the rough, rocky mountains of the island. Their facilities can be used after prior arrangement with the local Alpine Club.

The Kallergi shelter is an exception, being open from April to October. Visit the mountain shelters of Crete to experience the rugged, natural way of life.
