Crete is not only the “island with the thousand faces”, but it is considered by many a small continent due to the ever changing landscape and rich bio-diversity. There are so many things to do in so little time, so we are here to help you make the best with your time – whether you are looking for a daily activity between your relaxation by the private pool or a full week program with activities and adventures that will raise your adrenaline to new heights!
A walker’s paradise, the whole island of Crete is appreciated for its diversity, the wild beauty, the mild climate and the friendliness of its inhabitants. Especially the Apokoronas area is full of old trails and paths passing through picturesque villages and old chapels. Our special guide can walk you through the area’s history and beauty at your own pace. Do not miss the Imbros gorge that leads to the marvelous Frangokastello beaches.
Cycle through the area’s coastline, lush greenery and wonderful hillsides alone or with the support and fun of a local guide, who will not only accompany you through the breathtaking scenery but will also teach you about life in the old days. Depending on your level of athletic endurance, you can either tour the picturesque lanes of the Apokoronas’s village, roam the serpentine road in Sfakia or ride over the famous Aradaina iron bridge. Don’t forget your helmet!
You have all seen the photos of the Caribbean-like beach of Balos lagoon. Avoid the large ferry-traveller groups and book a day trip to Balos with a sailboat. Our concierge can also arrange for you trips to the islet of Thodorou, the refuge of the endangered kri kri wild goat, and Menies, a secluded beach you will be willing to leave. Set sails!
Whether you are a beginner or a PADI-certified diver, an underwater adventure in Crete should not be a miss! Shipwrecks, colourful reefs, underwater cave formations with names such as “Elephant Caves” are all part of the wealth of our seas. So, enjoy the sense of weightlessness and immerse into the Big Blue.
