Kouroutes



Kouroutes is a traditional village 49km far from Rethimno city (Route: Apostoloi, - Asomatos - Vizari - Fourfouras - Kouroutes) by an altitude of 510 m. Residends: 1940: 303, 1991: 129.

There are two huts on Psiloritis mountain. The nearest is the hut of "Stoubotos Prinos" (1600m.) in the south site of the mountain. You get there from the village of Fourfouras or Kouroutes. From Kouroutes there is a road that goes straight to the hut (in the winter not possible to go by car). From the hut about 3-4 hours to the summit. It belongs to the Mountaineering Club of Rethimno and you have to take the key to get access in the hut.

Kouroutes mountain area: After Vistagi village (8km north from Kouroutes) continue to the south (toward Kouroutes) and prepare yourself for one of the most beautiful routes on asphalt in all of Crete, which takes you to the town of Agia Varvara through Kouroutes - Kamares - Zaros on the road that connects Iraklio and Gortina.
Although it cannot exactly be described as a “mountain route,” it follows the west and south side of
Mount Psiloritis
and sometimes takes you to a pretty high altitude from where you can enjoy a great view wherever you look. If the night finds you travelling in this area, you have very few chances of finding “decent” accommodations. Apart from some shabby Rooms to Let in
Platanos, Kamares and a few other villages, there is no place to rent.
