Hiking and trekking adventures await voyagers who will have the opportunity to explore the Samaria Gorge, the most famous of Crete’s gorges. The path to the gorge begins from Omalos mountain, at Xyloskalo point at an altitude of 1200m. The end of the route is at sea level at Aghia Roumeli village. Another gorge added to the list is the Imbros gorge located in the southern part of the Chania prefecture. This route will give you exceptional views of the Libyan Sea (South Crete Sea) that will enchant you.

Cooking lessons offered in Crete will open the pathway of discovery to its traditional cuisine which will mesmerize your senses and tingle your taste buds. The secret to these flavors will be hidden behind Greek olive oil, an ingredient that is a must in all recipes. Travelers from November to January will have the opportunity to assist in harvesting and enjoy picnic lunches in the groves, experiencing the process from the very first moment. To ease your evening, spend the rest of the day exploring the vineyards of Crete and taste local wine, the juice of the Gods.
