We start our trip with a visit to an olive oil park where you can experience first-hand the standardization of extra virgin olive oil, table olives and olive paste. Here you will be able to taste the authentic Greek product, which is famous worldwide for its great taste and its nutritional value, as well as, other authentic Cretan products like “raki” and honey.

After our first stop, we reach the capital town of Lasithi, Agios Nikolaos. You can discover the pretty city on your own, stroll through the shops or relax in one of the countless cafes next to the picturesque bottomless lake of Voulismeni.

We continue our journey to Plaka, a small fishing village directly opposite of Spinalonga. Here you will have plenty of free time to enjoy lunch or a refreshing swimming. Moreover, from there you can take a 15-minute boat ride that takes you to the well-known island of Spinalonga.

The history and the culture of the island of Spinalonga became one with human tragedy in the course of time. It has been an important place throughout history for the ancient Greeks, as natural protection for the city of Olous, for the Saracens as a hiding place for their pirates, for the Venetians as a fortress, for the Turks as a settlement and for a long time the island served as a leper colony.

After our boat ride to Spinalonga, we return to Plaka, where you can enjoy a coffee or your lunch, before going back to our bus.

An amazing trip with many destinations that you should definitely not miss!
