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.

This excursion is a trip back in time since it carries the sensation and the feel of another era…Our excursion starts from the beautiful harbor of Elounda where we will get on board to visit the bay of and the beach of Kolokitha. Here you have time for swimming at the crystal clear waters and to relax under the scorching sun.

After our visit at the bay of Kolokitha we depart for the island of Spinalonga. The history and the culture of the island of Spinalonga became one with human tragedy in the course of time. This small isle carries within the history of Ancient Greece, as it served as a natural guard for the ancient city of Olous; the history of Saracens as a hide-out for their pirates; the history of Venetians as their fortress; the history of Turks as their settlement (guided tour on the island).

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.

Last stop the capital town of Lasithi Agios Nikolaos. Relax in a caffee next to the bottomless Lake of Voulismeni and enjoy your walk to the local shops.
