    Tour description

    Do you think that when you choose a trip around Crete, you have to decide between sunbathing and sightseeing?

    Nothing could be more wrong. If you want to learn more about the island’s history, see the breathtaking lake, explore the historic city, do some shopping, and finally enjoy a relaxing cruise and a refreshing dip in the sea, this tour seems perfect for you.
    Our first stop is a unique place. Imagine a mysterious lake surrounded by a mountain range, this landscape is impressive. It’s worth visiting just for the view. However, there are many ways to spend time at the lake. A walk along the shore, coffee in one of the cafes with a panoramic view, or for the more active – renting a pedal boat and discovering the secrets of Lake Kournas.
    Then the city of Chania. Considered by many to be the most beautiful city in Crete. Apparently, the legacy the Turks and Venetians left impresses even those who are not easy to impress.

    Think about walking around the old port and the narrow streets of Chania, it’s easy to get lost in them but believe us, it’s worth it. Here everyone will find something for themselves. Local shops are a paradise for shoppers: fans of sightseeing will discover interesting monuments – the Venetian port with a lighthouse known from postcards, arsenals, and Janissary Mosque, to name just a few. In addition, many restaurants and cafes have a stunning view of the old port, where you can relax after an exhausting walk. Therefore, Chania is a city for everyone.

    Finally, after a tiring day, it’s time to relax. So board the ship and enjoy a leisurely cruise around Souda Bay, where you can enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature, dip in the crystal clear waters and take a refreshing swim. Sounds like the perfect end to the day!
    It seems this trip is a brilliant combination! You can enjoy sunbathing, sightseeing, shopping, a relaxing cruise and swimming in the sea. There will be no time for boredom! You will probably return to the hotel satisfied, perhaps tired, but happy, with the baggage of memories and knowledge about Crete.​
