Property Description

Aghios Nikolaos, the largest town on the Gulf of Mirambello, is renowned for its lively atmosphere and has become one of the most popular destinations in Crete; people are amazed by what this vibrant seaside town has to offer. Small tavernas with Crete’s health-giving traditional cuisine, family owned shops with local artwork, beautiful jewellery and embroidery, bars and coffee shops along the waterfront. There is also an open-air theatre by the lake offering music concerts in the summer. Attractions include the small lagoon called Voulismeni, small beaches right in the town, the tiny island of Aghioi Pantes, the archaeological museum, the local flora exhibition “Iris” and numerous fairs throughout the year, mainly in the summer months.

Elounda is the most famous and cosmopolitan place not only on the island of Crete but also in the entire Aegean Sea, much acclaimed for its outstanding hotels in a magnificent natural setting. The ancient city of Olous was situated in the area of Elounda. Some ruins of the city are preserved at the edge of the peninsula but most of them are now below sea level. The ancient history is visible on the seabed, magically connecting the rich past with the fascinating present.

Kritsa is considered to be one of the most picturesque villages in Crete with old houses and narrow streets, built amphitheatrically on a rocky hillside that is surrounded by olive groves. From many places in the village there are fine views over the curve of the Gulf of Mirambello. Kritsa is set 11 kilometres above Aghios Nikolaos. It has about 2000 inhabitants. Its people proudly retain the old Cretan customs and traditions. It is considered one of the most important centres of Cretan folk and weaving art. Kritsa is a unique community of people with their own cultural progression, their own traditions and even their own local dialect.

During the course of this excursion, in  Kritsa, our vehicle will stop at a traditional Cretan taverna for a light lunch, a selection of Cretan meze. Water and soft drinks are included.

Note: The price for this tour is for the vehicle with a capacity of from 12 to 19 people as participants. Contact us for pricing and arrangements if your group size is of fewer or a greater number of people. If you would like to start or finish this tour in any other place on the island other than in Heraklion or the area around Aghios Nikolaos and Elounda, please contact us for prices and arrangements in that regard.
