Under the same name, “Selakano”, the wild forested mountain area the fertile valley, as well as a small picturesque settlement. Located in the north-western territories of Ierapetra, in the south-eastern part of the Dikti massif at an altitude of 930m. The area is blessed with magnificent natural beauty, with many springs, little streams and breathtaking gorges, a wild forest of unique environmental importance, with pine- trees, planes, oaks, cypresses, holly trees and cretan maples.

The forest is the nesting and hunting ground of many predatory birds and other small wild animals, one of Crete’s most important eco-systems, protected by the NATURA 2000 European networking. In the basin, where the settlements of Selakano and Mathokastana are located, there are many walnut and pear trees, vineyards and small vegetable gardens. Additionally the area produces some of Crete’s finest thyme honey, as well as exceptional dairy products.

The whole area is always green and beautiful, ideal for trips and excursions all through the year. It is also an excellent starting point as it is as close to Dikti’s mountain top, as to the fabulous southern beaches of Ierapetra. The people of the Selakano settlement -natives or owners of country houses in the area- are warm and friendly, relaxed and straightforward. They are more than happy to meet with travelers, hikers and tourists and offer them at least a round of drinks or other treats. Sarakina canyon In a short distance from Selakano, the small Sarakina Gorge starts, which ends near the Mirtos. The length of the canyon reaches 1.5km and its width ranges from 3 to 10 meters, with only a few points exceeding that. The walls reach a height of 150m, making this narrow gorge very impressive.

In the gorge, Kryopotamos river is flowing all over the year. The locals call the gorge Sarantapihos. According to legend Sarantapihos, a giant (son of Zeus) stopped to drink water from a river. His long beard slashed the mountain in two parts and created the canyon. The canyon is rich in vegetation, birds and gurgling water. This is a canyon with most of its length being accessible, with water, ponds and some climbing points. It is ideal for a pleasant afternoon or for a walk with your children. The Boufany Canyon (Eagle-vulture Canyon) The Boufany Canyon (Eagle-vulture Canyon) is created by the river "Psoriaris" which stems from Selakano.
