In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Samaria gorge: This is a very nice whole day hike in the Samaria Gorge.
You have to take the bus from Chania to Omalos (the entrance of the Gorge).
You should be there at 8:00 at the latest.
The gorge takes 6-8 hours to cross (leasurely). You end up at the Village of Aghia Roumeli where you have to take the boat (last one around 16:00, check it out) to Sfakia, and then the bus to Chania. Its really a full day trip but worth the trouble.
Loutro: A nice little village by the sea in the south coast between Aghia Roumeli and Sfakia. Accessible only by boat or walking (difficult path).
Falassarna: The closest super-beach to Kolymbari, 30 minutes drive to the west. Site of an ancient Dorian city. The little restaurant of Capetan Nikolas in the Falassarna port, is a must!
"Tigani" or "Balos" is one of the two best beaches in Crete (the other is Elafonissos). It is at the bottom of the Gramvoussa peninsula, the western of Cretan peninsulas. From the village of Kaliviani 7 Kms of dirt road plus two Kms of a path bring you to this beach.
Also reachable by boat day trips from Kastelli and Chania.
Chryssoskalitissa - Elafonisos: Chisoskalitisa is a nice little monastery, worth a stop on the way to Elafonissos, one of the two best beaches in Crete. Its specialty is the rose hue of its sand.
Chania: The main city of the west, that has restored nicely the old town and port. It is around 30 Kms east of Kolymbari.
Certainly the best city in Crete , it merits a visit.
Rethymnon: A little city west of Chania and East of Heraklion is the second nicest city in Crete, with a nice old city and a small Venitian port.
Monasteries of Gouvernetou and Aghia Triada: Two nice old monsteries in the Souda peninsula, meriting a visit. From the Goubernetou Monastery, there is a path that leads to the sea, making a nice two hour hike (one way). Aghia Triada produces top quality olive oil.
Palaiochora: An interesting area in the south west, not one of the first priorities though.
