Exclusive Balos

Mini Bus Excursion (20 persons)

Our off road trip gives you an adventurous day on the west edge of the island. Prepare yourselves for the wild route to mountain Vouxa: rocky scenery on the one hand, refreshing light blue water on the other. Arriving on the top you have the opportunity to take the best selfie of your vacation: a panoramic photo of Balos and Gramvousa. Descending towards the beach you realize that at that time of the day you avoid the crowd, as the ferrys have not arrived yet. Take the advantage of swimming in an earthly paradise. A little cruise to the castle island of Gramvousa is what follows. This trip is the only one that offers you a combination of a mountain trip and a relaxing cruise-in other words, a trip “not to be missed”.

  • Good shoes are required.

Imbros Gorge – Frangokastello

A natural beauty, not as well known as the Samaria Gorge, is the magnificent gorge of Imbros. The route runs through an 8 kilometers long valley between mountains and villages and the total descent is around 600m. It’s almost parallel to the Samaria gorge and it takes almost 3 hrs walking. The bus will be waiting for you at the exit of the Gorge at the village of Komitades. Our next stop is at Frangokastello, a venetian fortress located in the south coast of the island. It is famous for the “dew men” (“Drosulites”), the phantoms soldiers, who lost their lives there during a great fight; they appear once a year, in May, early in the morning. Also, take your time to the beautiful beach where you can swim or enjoy a meal at the local taverns. This walk is suitable for children.

There, at a height of 1.100m, you will begin the 16km walk through the longest and most beautiful gorge in Europe.

Chania City – Akrotiri / Monastery Tsagarolon

 

First of all, we visit the Monastery of Tsagarolon.

It follows one more nice photo-stop in Akrotiri, at the tomb of the famous Elefterios Venizelos.

The last stop is at the city of Chania. Here, Turkish and Venetian architectural styles meet and form a very impressive townscape. Especially in the old town, narrow streets and alleys, old mansion and arcades, mosques and minarets bear witness to the long presence of  Venetians and Turks. All this creates an exceptional atmosphere, and it is no wonder that Chania is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Crete.
