Kissamos is full of short and long routes you can hike on during your stay. The area is also crossed by the European path E4. E4 is a European long-distance path operated by the European Ramblers Association (E.W.V.). The part of the path that runs within the Greek territory has been designed and signposted by the Hellenic Federation of Mountaineering and climbing. The path starts from the Pyrenees, it crosses the entire mountain range of the Alpes and it arrives at Florina where the Greek part of it starts. It crosses the whole of Greece down to Gythio and continues to Kissamos. From Kissamos starts the new part of E4 that goes down to Elafonisos and crosses all of Crete, ending near Sitia.
