Crete in winter ... "Out of season" and "off-season" the right time to enjoy Crete's more peaceful nature. A good time to pursue interests, studies, hobbies, and hikes. By winter, we mean November until late March.
Winter months offer the chance to explore the uncrowded vision of Crete. In some years there is significant snowfall in the mountains (the highest peaks always receive some winter snowfall).
Vistas open up in the winter and you can meet local people, experience hospitality that is offered so genuinely when you pause on your journey around the island. Don't expect to bask in the sunshine every day, but on those lucky sunny days, you get a bonus of bright island light.
Crete is an island of drama, something the weather often reflects.
