Following in the Footsteps of Heracles

Gateway to the very contemporary treasures of the island of Crete, Heraklion also lends itself to a fabulous journey through time. It is not to be missed. The discovery of this cradle of Minoan civilization is followed inevitably by the ruins of the Palace of Knossos and the archaeological museum of the city: a modern showcase of a glorious past.

Exploring the Samaria Gorge

Situated in the Samaria National Park in the White Mountains, this 16-kilometre mineral protrusion is one of the island's great natural sights. A day trip to these gorges, which rank among the longest in Europe, will fill the ardour of those who, after the beach, are itching to move!

Sampling the Famous Cretan Diet

Renowned for its dietary properties, Cretan cuisine is not only good for health! Simple, it is also tasty, its mezzes, ideal preparations for the aperitif based on cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas or olives, pitas and other typical specialties.

Going for a Jeep Safari

Like adventure and off-roading? A jeep safari on its hilly roads is a lovely way to explore the island. The route proposed by Crete Jeep Safari through the mountains of Dikti and Lassithi is a must-do, between crossing rivers, roaming forest roads and paying other visits to monasteries.
