Our first stop will be the world-famous Minoan Palace at Knossos, the home of the legendary King Minos who gave his name to Europe’s oldest civilization.
According to Greek mythology, the monstrous Minotaur – half man, half bull – lived at Knossos and fed on human flesh and bone. He was eventually slayed by the brave and mighty Athenian prince, Theseus, within the hidden Labyrinth.
Parts of the ancient Palace have been excavated and reconstructed by the British archaeologist, Sir Arthur Evans, and today one can get a clear understanding of the function of the Palace and its complicated and mystical Labyrinth.
Day 3 – Fishing trip 
Pick up from hotel: 09:00
The number of participants for this tour is 8 – 12, as this is the full capacity of the boat. After we pick up all participants from their hotels we proceed to the starting point of the tour, which is Plaka in the Elounda area near Agios Nikolaos, in East Crete.
We board the boat where you will be given your fishing gear (fishing rods – one per adult, bait) and also you will be advised step by step from the guide and the staff on board in order to catch as many fish as possible, and also to give you explanations of the kind of fish you may be able to catch!

One of the highlights of West Crete is the famous Samaria gorge which sprouts on the south side of the Omalos-Plateau in the White Mountain Ranges of Western Crete. Proclaimed a National Park in 1962, it offers a wealth of natural beauty which is recognized far beyond Greece’s borders.
Are you ready for this ultimate walking-challenge?
The 17kms hike through this very imposing gorge is tough but unforgettable and takes 5 to 6 hours (average time). The landscape at the Samaria gorge is astounding and most impressive you will find the narrowest pass “The Iron Gate”, which is only 3m wide and 300 to 700m high from both sides.
