Private walks in Crete

Rare flowers of the High Desert

The High Desert of the White Mountains is geologically unique in the world so it is no surprise that the flora is also quite unique, with an abundance of rare endemic flowers. Once the snow has melted and though it all looks incredibly barren, a walk through the high mountains will show you many treasures, provided you pay attention and look closely.
