Our choice for mountain bikers. The scale of these maps is very big and depict more roads than any other map. The road network they cover is huge. They are recently updated and they depict even the most recently constructed roads. The maps recommend some cycling routes (red dotted line) but they copied them from our site.
The fact that they cover the whole Crete and not only the big mountains, make them more useful for mountain bikers who ride long distances.
The graphics are very good, but the choice of colors depending on the altitude are not as good as anavasi maps.
Orama hiking maps are useful and for people who want to do an off road jeep safari but if you want to do a tour around Crete through main asphalt roads it is more practical and cheaper to buy the 1:100.00 maps (although they do not provide the same information).
All maps have two sides with map of different area at each side. The E4 path is very easy to find and follow (black thick line). A feature of the map we like is the symbol that shows the location of each city or village which varies according to the population.
The maps are printed on high quality water & tear resistant paper which is easy to fold and unfold.
The only drawback we found on these maps is their layout in order to cover the island, mainly the western Crete (maps 401, 402, 403 και 404)
