There your private local insider guide will provide you with key pieces of information and engage you with the unique local lifestyle. The next neighbor's village is famous for its traditional kafenion shops (Café), delicious award-winning oil, abundant fruits, and vegetables. Thus that would be the right cozy spot to enjoy your coffee with tasty local fruits. You will also have the opportunity to be guided in the historic Church of Panagia Kera.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Kroustas Forest Historical Landscape Park, Kroustas, Crete Greece

Afterward, you will be taken to the ancient forested region of the mountainous South-eastern Crete. You will make a memorable photo-stop at the highest peak of the region - an amazing spot for observing both the Libyan and Cretan Sea at the same time! Following, you will enjoy an authentic Cretan breakfast in an idyllic place under the shade of ancient plane trees and surrounded by lush green and refreshing springs. This is the spot where only the local shepherds enjoy taking their breakfast.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Lassithi Plateau, Crete 72052 Greece

The next stop will be in one of the most beautiful wild gorges of East Crete. A least-trampled paradise and easy-accessible for relaxed hiking with your private guide. Inside the gorge, you will explore wildflowers, Cretan Golden eagles and the Cretan wild goat known as the Agrimi or Kri Kri, and many other hidden gems of the Cretan nature. Not to mention that you can also bath in the breezy fresh-water waterfalls of the gorge!

In the end day, in order to relax and regain strength, you will be taken to a quaint beach of the Libyan Sea (South-eastern region) with its emerald blue waters, craggy coastline, and dreamy coves. There you will be provided with the best recommendations for a delicious lunch in one of the local fish taverns, with freshly-caught seafood, on the beach.
