Excursion details

Learn about this trip

On this fantastic tour you have the opportunity to see old and traditional villages, churches, history, archaeology, mythology, nice photo-stops, a beautiful beach… truly a little of everything.

The main destination of the tour is the picturesque bay and the village of Matala. The village is well-known especially for its ancient caves, carved out thousands of years ago in the cliffs above the beautiful sandy beach.

Our first stop is the village of Margarites. Since the ancient time the colourful village is well-known for its traditional potteries.
At one of them we will be able to have a close look at their artistic work. A short while later, at the famous monastery of Arkadi we stay for a coffee-break.

It follows an unforgettable bus ride with some very nice photo-stops along the foothills of the famous Ida Mountains, through the evergreen Amari Valley and its old, typical Cretan villages.

Our next stop is one of the most idyllic places on our island – the village of Agia Galini. After a nice coffee-break there we continue to Matala.

Reaching our main destination we stay for a traditional lunch and for a refreshing swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea.

On the way back we take a totally different road and make a very nice photo-stop at the village of Spili, well-known for its freshwater springs and lion-fountains.
