Activities on Crete Greece: Perhaps you have never been on Crete in Greece and you have no idea how versatile the island is. There is something nice to do for every age and interest; from interesting sights on Crete to lazing on the beach and from beautiful nature walks to snorkelling in the Mediterranean. Nobody needs to get bored. Because there is a lot to do on the Greek island, we create every week a program with activities on Crete for our guests. We take into account that not everyone loves the same things to do and therefore we provide the necessary variety.
Snorkelling at Preveli South Crete: In most good travel guides of Crete is written about the palm forest at Preveli on the south coast. From the Kourtaliotiko gorge a river flows with refreshing water to the famous beach of Preveli and ends in the Libyan Sea. Cretan palm trees (phoenix theophrasti) and oleander bushes grow along the river, giving the area a tropical feel. After a walk in this beautiful area on Wednesday, we take some time for snorkelling.
A surprising walk on Crete: On Thursday we will walk in the beautiful nature of Crete. On the island there are endless options for a walk in nature; there are many gorges that we can walk in June, but a mountain hike on Crete is also worth doing at this time of the year. Where we go on Thursday, we will not comment on yet. We have many guests who return every year. Maybe they can recognize from the photos where we are.
The Mesonas gorge, walking at Kavoussi Crete: On Monday we will walk in the Mesonas gorge in East Crete. It is quite a tough hike that starts at the village of Kavoussi and passes along the archaeological settlements Vrontas, Azoria and Kastro. During the hike there are often gorgeous views over the Bay of Mirabello. Large parts of the hike are on a kalderimi, the ancient connection roads or actually the donkey trails on Crete. At many spots in this beautiful area you are reminded of the rich history of Crete.
Walking to Kainourgio Horio Crete: Not far from our accommodation in Kokkini Hani are several traditional villages where hardly any tourists come. On Tuesday we walk with some of our guests through the mountainous landscape to Kainourgio Chorio. The way back is via Anopoli where another part of our guests follows a cooking workshop in an olive grove. Here, enough delicious Greek dishes are prepared so that hungry hikers can also join for lunch.
Boat excursion Crete: If the weather allows it, there is a boat trip on Friday with the Zorbas boat to the bay of Agios Georgios in Hersonissos. We sail along the north coast of Crete and moor in the bay. In the bay you can snorkel to the cave in the water, swim, or laze on the deck of the boat. Spending a day on the water is written for many people on their wish list with activities on Crete.
Things to do on Crete: The weekly program above is only a small example of what can be done on Crete. Our range of excursions that we organize is very extensive. That way we can offer everyone something nice to do. On top of that, with special wishes you can always contact us. We would like to know this well in advance though, so that we can adapt our excursion program. Send us an email before you come to Crete on holiday.
