Highlights of the Tour
The length of the tour is about 9 hours, including 3 hours driving time (roundtrip) from Agios Nikolaos/ Elounda area.
Do you enjoy non-touristy sites, scenic mountain road, unparalleled panoramic view of the island? What about exploring a cave less visited in a Cretan wilderness? Add the narrow path with 110 stairs leading to the top of the mountain - just like a film scene from "Mamma Mia"? If you find this plan entertaining, come along - let’s cross the island - from North to South. Off we are to Pefki village!
Never heard of Pefki? Off-the-beaten path, adventurous, delicious are the keywords describing the village and its secrets, within the vicinity – surprising all in all.
The lunch in a small, traditional, family-owner taverns with home-grown and freshly prepared delicacies and truly authentic Cretan dishes is a 'must' and not an exception during our tours.
There is a swim opportunity during the tour, so don’t forget to bring your swimming suit, beach towel. Light cardigan, sunscreen and hat will help to enjoy the sun.
Note: this is a private tour and can be modified according to your interests and preferences
*Another idea that kids will love: a visit of donkey sanctuary. Cocnut, George, Syd are just few of the donkeys that have found the rescue in this shelter.
On the way back, shall the time allow, we make a detour to visit the monumental 'tree of wisdom' - 3250 years old olive oil tree in Kavousi deemed to be the oldest not only in Crete but in a whole of Greece and even Europe.
