In Kapetaniana, where the small guesthouse Pension Kofinas is located, nestled in a fascinating landscape, the tranquility of one of the most picturesque Cretan villages awaits you on the southern flank of the Asteroussia Mountains.
The village is located at about 800m above sea level and provides a beautiful view of the incandescent waters of the Libyan Sea. Here you have the opportunity to go on several hiking tours- from easy to demanding – with highlights such as climbing to the top of Mount Kofinas (at 1,236 m).
Amongst the highlights is also a visit to Moni Koudouma monastery, and coastal walks to the grotto-church of Agios Antonios and the church of the hermit Agios Joannis. Take a look in our gallery for photos.
The starting point of the hiking tours and for the climbing area is the guesthouse Pension Kofinas.
