Spring break to Greece: It is spring and slowly we take some lighter clothes out of the closet. The winter is over, so we want to go outside daily again. The spring break has just started, but what a bad luck, it rains. Perhaps you should consider taking a vacation in spring. A spring break to Greece promises sunny weather, a pleasant temperature and finally the possibility to go outside. For a holiday in the spring in Crete we have put together a program, where everyone can find something nice to do.

Nature walk at Anopolis and cooking in the open air: Tuesday is a day that brings together different interests. Some of our guests are going to cook in the open air in an olive grove, while another part is going to walk in the same area. This nature walk at Anopolis will be a pleasant surprise for many, because just a few minutes away from Kokkini Hani is a beautiful landscape where you will hardly meet people. Meanwhile, the cooking group will prepare delicious Greek dishes. These are ready around the time that the walking group is ready for lunch. Everyone eats together in the olive grove, a nice time to exchange experiences.

Life on Crete: People often ask us how life on Crete is. This is difficult to explain if you have never experienced it yourself. It is nicer to see it, to experience how life is besides tourism. Life of people in the mountain villages does not depend on tourism. There they live from agriculture and according to tradition and old habits. In everyday life, the Greek Orthodox faith is very important and that is reflected in the many churches and monasteries on the island. On Wednesday we show our guests some of this life and visit a few mountain villages and a monastery.

The gorge of Aposelemis: Monday, the first day of spring break in Greece we start with a walk through the gorge of Aposelemis. Just a few kilometres from our accommodation is this special gorge hidden between the mountains. A few years ago a river flowed here, which created a passage through and causing the rocks to become worn. Now there is no more water in the gorge, but nature is still very beautiful. The light grey worn out rocks, high cliffs and many oleander bushes with pink flowers form an impressive image. Many birds live here, including vultures that have their nests high up in a cliff.

Cycling tour on Crete: On Monday we will also go cycling with a few guests. In the spring it is not too hot for cycling on Crete. A good health condition is required, because Crete has a mountainous landscape. There are no cycle paths on the Greek island, but there are plenty of roads that are suitable for cycling with a MTB on Crete. The landscape behind our accommodation has more than enough roads suitable for cycling on a mountain bike. These so-called farm roads are not on the map, but show you the most beautiful places in the area. With a mountain bike on Crete you can cycle from village to village or just enjoy the beautiful landscape.

Martsalo gorge Crete: Every year we promise our guests a special place to snorkel. This year in the spring break on Crete, we will go to the south coast of Crete on Thursday. Here is the unknown gorge of Martsalo. The unusual landscape in the gorge is mainly characterized by the Cretan date palm that grows here. The Martsalo gorge in South Crete is a gorge of only 2 kilometres and ends at the Martsalo beach in a remote small bay. Because it is enclosed, it is ideal for snorkelling. Prior to this excursion hiking and snorkelling, on Wednesday we will first give snorkelling instructions in the pool at Zorbas Island.

Boat trip on holiday in Greece: During a week’s holiday on Crete in spring, a boat trip with the Zorbas boat is of course also included. It’s a relaxing way to end a week of active holidays. With the wind blowing in our hair we sail along the coast in an easterly direction. The boat moors in the bay of Saint George at Hersonissos where you can swim and snorkel. Jump from the boat in the refreshing waters of the Mediterranean Sea, swim to the cave in the sea and admire the beautiful underwater world.

Activities in the spring holidays in Greece: A new week of spring break in Crete has started again with perfect weather for outdoor activities. The sun is shining and a refreshing breeze is blowing from the sea. Great weather to lie on a bed in the sun, but it is also nice to explore the island of Crete. We organize different types of activities during the spring break in Crete, so that there is something fun for everyone to do. Of course you are not obliged to participate in this. If you prefer to go out on your own, with pleasure we give you the necessary tips.
