Δίκταμος

The prefecture of Chania has a Mediterranean climate with soft and humid winters and warm and dry summers.

The climate near the mountain tops, is more continental with big snowfalls during the Winter.

The prefecture is considered the rainiest in Crete and one of the most humid in Greece and this is also the reason the vegetation is particularly dense and rich.

The most common cultivations in the prefecture are olives, vines, citrus fruits and vegetables. The most common forest plants are cypresses, carobs, pines, planes and low bushy vegetation. On the mountain slopes there are a lot of herbs some of which are endemic such as the Diktamos Gorge.

The White Mountains is house of the Cretan Kri-Kri, a unique species in the world.
