Full description

Explore the historic sites and local culture of Crete on a drive to sights such as the dam of Aposelemis, the village of Avdou, and more. See a stunning sunset from the Minoan settlement, Karfi, and enjoy dinner at a local restaurant.

Your first stop is the village Potamies – a guided tour of a traditional animal ranch where you’ll experience the culture as the locals go about their daily tasks.

Enjoy the aroma of fresh fruits and vegetables as you wander through the gardens of the village to the dam of Aposelemis, the largest water supply project in Crete. Here you’ll see the curious village of Sfendili, whose old houses are slowly fading into the water of the dam.

Then it’s on to the village that perhaps most embodies Crete: Avdou. Characteristic of the settlement, all the buildings are well-preserved and have descriptions of the area’s history. 

We continue the drive uphill on dirt roads to the gorge of Embassa, where you’ll see the impressive mountains and wildlife of Crete. You’ll even have the opportunity to collect some of the fresh local herbs.

It’s then time for the dazzling sunset at the historical Minoan settlement, Karfi, accompanied by cool Prosecco and fresh seasonal fruits. Finally, you’ll finish your day with a dinner of local delicacies in the best tavern in the area.

    En utrolig god oplevelse. Vores guide Gorge var virkelig dygtig, humoristisk og gav os den bedste tur, hvor han flere gange undervejs holdt ind til siden for at vise os urter, blomster og cikader. Han gav os hele oplevelsen. Vi skiftede pladser undervejs i bilen, så man fik en ny udsigtspost hver gang. Det fungerede super godt. Vi filmede under turen, og Gorge var virkelig god til at fortælle os, hvornår der ville komme noget smukt, så vi kunne være klar med kameraet. Der var lidt skyer, da vi skulle se solnedgangen, men vi var så heldige, at solen alligevel dukkede frem. Solen var helt blodrød og det var utrolig smukt. Maden fra den lokale restaurant var også fin. Man kunne vælge mellem vegetar, pork eller kylling. Så det var rigtig godt med udvalget.
