Dreaming of visiting and exploring small picturesque villages, untouched by mass tourism ... villages that are the essence of Crete?

Then this is the right excursion for you during your stay in lovely Crete.

This is the most complete village-hopping experience going through villages at the foot of ‘’Lefka Ori” (White Mountains).

It starts with a visit to a typical village that has been declared a protected national monument because of the many Venetian buildings that are found there. There we will have time to walk in its narrow streets and have coffee in the traditional ‘’kafenion’’.

We shall then continue to another village where we will visit a well-known artist. His house and studio with traditional architecture and unique ceramics are a great example of Cretan culture.

Going through olive groves, vineyards, shepherd’s huts, and wonderful panoramic views we will end up in a traditional taverna which is considered the center of gastronomy and slow food where you can enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch.

On our way back, we will drive through the historical Therissos gorge.
