WHY WE LOVE IT

The best way to experience Crete’s White Mountains and discover the authentic country-life of Crete!

Activity Description

Join the most complete village hopping experience through authentic locations at the foothills of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) in Chania region. A unique private guided tour with wonderful scenery as well as a real insight into traditional Cretan life.

Starting from Chania and accompanied by your expert local insider, you will visit an authentic Cretan village that has been declared a protected national monument because of the many Venetian buildings that have been found there. You will have time to explore, walk in its narrow alleys and have coffee with locals in the traditional ‘kafeneion’.

Your local host will then drive you to the next authentic location, where you will visit a well-known artist in his house and studio. Its traditional architecture and unique ceramics are a great example of Cretan culture.

Going through olive groves, vineyards, shepherd’s huts and wonderful panoramic views you will end up in a traditional taverna which is considered the centre of gastronomy and slow food - there you will have plenty of time to enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch.

On your way back, your guide will drive you through the historical Therissos gorge to grasp the most of wild Crete before you head back to Chania town.
