    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Minoiton Ormos Agios Nikolaos, Agios Nikolaos Crete 721 00, Greece

    The town of Agios Nikolaos is the capital of Lassithi prefecture and stands on the shore of Mirabello bay on the east part of Crete's island. The point of attention is the lake of Voulismeni, found in the town center, surrounded by cafes and restaurants. The lake connects to the sea under a tiny road blue bridge and has a historical and geological significance due to its high depth. In the town, you can find many shops and on Wednesdays even an open-air market bazaar. Take your time for a walk to enjoy the views, enjoy some shopping or have a drink in one of the numerous cafes around the lake.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Pass By: Elounda port Parking, Elounda 720 53, Greece

    The bus tour continues with the group heading to Elounda town, where we will embark on the boat and begin our sailing trip to Kolokitha Bay.

    Elounda is a former fishing village on the northern coast of the island. Modern Elounda is very well known for the Five and Six stars luxury Hotels built in the area. A lot of them can be seen on the way to the port, where we embark to our private boat for the coastal cruise to Mirabello Gulf.

    Stop At: Kolokýtha, Σχίσμα Ελούντας, Schisma Elountas, Greece

    Following the coastline of Agios Nikolaos will get us to the Bay of Kolokytha, an unspoiled and away from civilization spot. While the BBQ meal is prepared from the crew and the captain, enjoy a swim in crystal clear turquoise water. The meal will be served on board, accompanied by a glass of wine or a soft drink.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Spinalonga (Kalydon), Elounda Bay, Elounda, Crete 720 53 Greece

    At last but not least, make your way with the guided tour to Spinalonga where the legacy of the lepers marked its initials.

    Spinalonga, the main attraction of the day, is a small island very close to Elounda and on the east part of the island of Crete. It is a place of historical memory as it accommodated in isolation people suffering from lepra until 1957. Through the centuries it has been inhabited from the Venetians, the Turks before it isolated the lepers. It has always been a tourist attraction, however after 2005 when Victoria Hislop a British writer wrote a historical novel “The Island” about how lepers lived on Spinalonga, hundreds of people come every day to honor a visit and learn the history of the place first hand.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
