SPRING ON CRETE: EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES

Spring on Crete
During the most important holiday of Crete Greece we organize a beautiful excursion and activity program. Please make your choice out of the possibilities below for a nice holiday on Crete during the spring.

River tour
A wonderful nature walk through mountain villages and old river beds where you can get a feel for the unknown side of Crete. We will tell you all about the amazing array of wild growing flowers and herbs during the spring on Crete, tell the tales of history and myths concerning the area and explain the Easter traditions to you at length. This walk is suitable for all ages.

Greek cooking workshop
Especially during Easter there are a lot of authentic Greek dishes. Together with our chef you will prepare delicious Greek Easter dishes and prepare the traditional Easter dinner. A fabulous day for all ages after which you can surprise family and friends back home with some Greek traditional food.

Easter hike
An adventurous hike through a wild part of nature. Our path leads us through what might even feel like a jungle, where we will need to make our own way once or twice. We will pick herbs and spices to make our own mountain tea while enjoying the open air. This walk is 10 to 12 km and is suitable for every hiker that likes a bit of a challenge.

The Easter Mass
We will take you to the Easter Mass at the local church where the whole village will be gathered. On this night you will get to know the locals and their traditions up close: you may even join in all the rituals regardless of your faith. This night can not be missed during your holiday on Crete.

Outdoor cooking
Cretans love to cook outside from way back when. During this day we will show you the different techniques involved when cooking in nature. We will be on top of a mountain where the non-chefs will be entertained with a beautiful walk through yet another part of nature. We will collect wood for the fire and pick the herbs for our mountain tea. This day can be expanded with a visit to the gypsy market in Heraklion.
