Tour Details

Elounda – Spinalonga island – Agios Nikolaos – Kritsa village Private Tour

Available again season 2021

Duration: Full Day

This excursion is designed to offer the best of the surrounding area for those wishing to have just an exploration of the west Crete. We will first drive to Elounda to embark a traditional fishing boat, and sail to the island of Spinalonga, fortified by the Venetians and used at the beginning of this century as a leper colony. We will walk around the islet and explore the restored premises.

At Spinalonga, the last leper colony in Europe, we will have a guided tour around this famous island, which is just a distance of 850m. Originally, Venetians fortified the islet in 1579, by building a fortress with 40 cannons and they are actually the best preserved walls in Europe. It used to be a leper colony from 1903 until 1957, where lepers could have a better life, medical help and economical support. The ruins of the market street with the shops, the hospital and many small houses in which lepers lived isolated, can still be seen.

After our visit to the island of Spinalonga, we return by boat to Elounda. Here you will have free time for a walk in the picturesque fishing village and for a delicious lunch in one of the traditional taverns. Afterwards we will drive to the town of Agios Nikolaos, for a stroll around its charming center, with colorful cafes around the lake and with nice little shops. Our next stop will be at the  picturesque village of Kritsa, stretched by the slopes of Kastellos mountain, for a walk around its colorful alleys. Late in the afternoon we will return at the hotel.
