In Crete and throughout Greece, the E4 trail was traced and maintained by the Hellenic Mountaineering and Climbing Federation.
The crossing from west to east of Crete stands out, as one of the most beautiful parts of the European path E4. The route passes through the White Mountains (White Mountains), Psiloritis (Mount Ida) and Mount Dikti and has a total length of 320 km.
It starts from Kastelli Kissamos in the west of Crete and crosses the whole island reaching Kato Zakros in the east. In Crete, the E4 path is marked with yellow signs and yellow and black arrows.
