The shelter is situated on the western slopes of the White Mountains. It is surrounded by the summits of Spathi, Venizelos and Agio Pnevma which offer summer and winter climbing adventures.

The mountain shelter of Volikas was the first mountain shelter built in Crete. It is a 3-hour hike from the village of Kampoi to the shelter. It is possible to go faster if you use the mountain trails which require only about an hour's hike.
