Explore the Hinterland
4.5 Hours

This private tour starts from Elounda or Agios Nikolaos

A relaxed short-day tour that navigates the area’s quieter and authentic hinterland, a stone’s throw away yet in complete contrast with the lively and crowded resorts that stretch out along the coastline. Our exploration will take us though rural villages, hilly landscapes, abandoned settlements and mills, atmospheric monasteries and white churches while mingling with locals in a quest to understand the island’s traditional way of life, that is both slow and laborious. Our visits will include the villages of Houmeriako and Vrysses, the Monastery of Kremaston, the agricultural small town of

Neapoli and the village of Fourni. Here we will enjoy a homemade Cretan meal in a cozy family-owned taverna set in the village’s picturesque square, under the welcoming shade of a huge sycamore tree. We will return in the hotel in the early afternoon, taking in the sweeping panoramic views over Mirambelo Bay.

  • Visit rural villages such as Houmeriakos and Fourni

  • Visit local craftsmen’s workshops
  • English speaking guide
