In 1979, after returning from a spell in the early Dubai building boom, Loraine Wilson swapped life as an Architectural assistant for trek leading, mainly in the mountains of Greece. A lifelong hill walker and backpacker, she has been walking the Cretan mountains since 1983. In 1995 a course in Heritage Management alerted her in a more formal way to the necessity of encouraging 'inland tourism' in Crete and places like it. It was in the hope of making a useful contribution that this book was written. Formerly London-based, Loraine now lives in Cumbria.
Guidebook of walking routes in Crete's mountains, covering the Lefka Ori (White Mountains), Mount Ida (the Psiloritis range), the Lassithi mountains and E4 trail. The 87 walks are graded, and range between 2 and 28km with various longer options, covering a multitude of terrains from rugged mountain ridges to forested crags and beaches.
