Sellia - Finikas Monastery - Souda

Difficulty: 2/5

What you see:

The most difficult aspect of this route is its length (9.2km). Other than that, it is fairly steady and easy. It takes you from from Sellia to Finikas Monastery (4km) and then down to Souda, along rural dirt tracks, asphalt roads and some paths. The views are amazing, while nature lovers will discover plenty of interesting flora and fauna. What’s more, the village of Sellia is an attraction by itself. Its layout is traditional and its people are quiet and welcoming. It is also famous for its feta cheese. Pay a visit to the local cheese factory before heading towards the Monastery ruins. Trust us, it is worth it. There is also a small tavern, a supermarket, a couple of gift shops and several traditional cafés. The return route (2.3km) to Souda is largely downhill. There you can have a swim or eat at one of the tavernas before heading back to Plakias (3km by road).

What You Need to Take:
