Activity Description

Join this authentic adventure tour in the enchanting area of Sfakia and discover the area's off-the-beaten path hiking trails and gastronomic scene. 
Departing in the morning from Chania, your guide will drive you through the wild southern beauty of Crete until you reach the last village of the Sfakia region, inhabited by only 15 people...! Your hike will start at an altitude of 650 meters and will take you through a unique pine forest on ancient hiking trails. Guests will have the option to choose between a 1, 2 or 3-hour easy footpath, which will lead the group to some of the most beautiful natural viewpoints of Southern Crete, capturing the breathtaking view of the Libyan sea. An outdoor lunch break will follow with homemade, 100% freshly prepared, seasonal and organic produce from the hosts' garden and local producers. The group will be accompanied by the chef who will introduce and explain the 'secrets' of the unique Cretan gastronomy, while guests enjoy the view with a glass of well chilled Cretan rosé bottled wine. After a short walk you will return to the village (starting point) and hop on the van to return to Chania. On the way back, guests have the option to stop for a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan sea.
