Introduction and Grouping in the morning at the hotel in Heraklion. We start a trip of aprox.210Km via the old national road to CHANIA town passing by villages like Damasta, Honos, Axos, Perama, Archea Eleftherna and Arkadi Monastery where we have a short stop for a coffee and a visit to the Monastery. Driving for about an hour partially off-road and asphalt paths we reach the picturesque village of Spili. A lunch for approx.2 hours and then direct to the beach of Georgioupolis for a short swimming stop. We arrive at Chania town at approx.18.00 hours.  At 20.00 hours meeting at the hotel lobby for dinner at the hotel's tavern.
From the Hotel we start at 09.00 hours for a trip of 160 km to Omalos and Sougia. Plantations of orange, olive and carob trees as well as a wild nature up to the height of 1700 m. on the LEFKA ORI, is what we admire most before coming to the Samaria gorge entrance. After the wild nature of the Cretan Mountains a mild landscape follows together with the crystal water of the Libyan sea. A lunch and swimming stop at Sougia village before coming back to Chania. Dinner at the hotel.
An early start at 08.30 hours is necessary for the 180-km trip of the day. On this trip it seems that nature is always in orgasm full of flowers and colours. The landscape that changes each moment is an unforgettable visual treasure. The 4hours at Elafonissos Island leave a taste of an unfulfilled dream. Lunch by the beach and an adventurous drive via the rocky western coast of the Island to Kampos village. In this village it is impossible to keep a time schedule.. It is always depending on the local inhabitants.
It is now time to go back to Heraklion area. This is the longest trip of the programme aprox.240km.  At 08.00 hours we start our way back and after crossing Lefka ori mountain range with lots of stops in between, we reach the Palm paradise of Preveli. Three hours stop is not enough but gives you the chance to swim and visit the palm forest and river of Preveli. Lunch by Genadios tavern and driving partially off-road and asphalt via the south cost until Messara plateau where we turn North in order to reach Heraklion town at approx. 18.00 hours and end the programme at the Hotel.
