Holiday overview of April in Crete Greece: Often we organize an excursion to unknown Crete. But the island Crete itself is not unknown, so what do we actually mean by this? For us the meaning of unknown Crete is very general; with this excursion we like to show you Crete from a different point of view, the part of the island which is unknown to you. The things we learned from living so many years on the island, we like to share with you. Many people think Crete is all about tourism, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Therefore, with this excursion we can show you that Crete has much more to offer than sun, sea and beach.

Roundtrip through the Kritsa gorge: Going through the Kritsa gorge is a hike you will not easily forget; it really is a masterpiece of Mother Nature! But also the area around the gorge is very special. Many aspects are covered in this hike through the Kritsa gorge; the grandeur of nature, traditional villages and possibly also a visit to an archaeological site. The walk starts and finishes close to the village of Kritsa.

The hike through the gorge is truly a unique experience! When starting, already the entrance to the gorge is very impressive, because it seems as if the mountain has been ripped into two parts. This way a small passage is created with the narrowest part in the gorge of only 90 centimetres. The high cliffs at both sides are impressive. In the gorge grow plane trees, oaks, oleanders and many typical species of plants that are endemic to Crete. Also lots of birds find shelter in the holes of the cliffs in the gorge.
