I got a nice little walking booklet through the post recently from its author Berend Wolfenbuttel. Latest in a series of booklets on walking in the region of Apokoronas, “Discover Almyrida & Kalyves…on foot” follows a similar same format as the other two books. It is light and portable, offers 11 easy country walks with well-written explanations and clear hand drawn maps.
The booklet has loads of quality photographs to illustrate the walks descriptions and to present the area that you are visiting. Plenty of local and historical information is added in side boxes and it is all your for only Euro 7.50. You can’t buy the book on Amazon but they have their own web site where you can order it. Alternatively local bookshops (in Apokoronas and Chania) will stock it as well.
I haven’t used this book for walking but a little while ago I needed walking information for Vamos and used their “Discover Vamos…On Foot” booklet to follow three walks and found it accurate and very pleasant to use.
