near Arádaina, Crete (Greece)

A pleasant tour which can be achieved in one day from Anopoli.
For the morning, ascent to Aradena - Agios Ioannis - Krousia, at the start of the path to the Zaranokefala. For the afternoon, a descent to the shore at Lykos, which could be easily extended by a visit to the nearby Finikas and Loutro - which is not included in the present track, however, in order to keep the material self-contained.

Not the Rio-Antirrio bridge, however, the most notable engineering fact on the route!

A dinner at Platanos, especially when coming back from some long hike on the Lefka Ori, is one of the favourite pleasures!
