Dromolatis is giving all the participants the gear needed for the hiking routes, so they won’t need to carry their own rucksack, sleeping system and trekking poles.
You need to carry with you a good pair of trekking shoes (preferably boots), a hat, sun cream and a flashing light for the camping nights.
You can choose your clothes depending the period you’re visiting Crete.
You can always ask Dromolatis about the weather conditions expected.
Aim of Dromolatis is to give the participants unforgettable memories through the trekking tours and the sightseeing tours and not to compete with all inclusive programs.
Even the dinners in the programs are for the guests to live the experience of the Cretan dishes and not just to eat something.
Dromolatis doesn’t want the guests to get tired, but to fill with unforgettable memories of Crete’s landscape and scents. That’s the reason we have included resting days. The trekking routes are low and medium difficulty, so people with no experience can participate and we have programmed the time, so no one is left behind.
Programs are several, so no one to be disappointed, but Dromolatis can modify any of them to your needs for groups of six and more.
The truth is that weather is sometimes unpredictable, especially if you book your trip months ago. For that reason Dromolatis has already alternatives trekking routes, as we don’t want to loose even one day of your trip.
