Excursions in East Crete

Excursion to Spinalonga Island and Agios Nikolaos

This trip takes you to the famous Spinalonga island, located at the east side of Crete. We will take you by our air

take the boat to visit the island of Spinalonga, where you will be offered a guided tour and have enough free time to
explore the island.
The history and the culture of the island of Spinalonga became one with human tragedy in the course of time. This small
isle carries within the history of Ancient Greece, as it was used as a Leper Colony until 1957 and there is a great history for
you to find out behind this.
Spinalonga also served a natural guard for the ancient city of Olous, the history of the Saracens as a hide-out for their
pirates, the history of Venetians as their fortress, the history of Turks as their settlement.
Our next stop will be off shore, where you can dive into the crystal water, enjoy swimming and snorkeling. We will return
with the boat to Elounda where you will have time for lunch and walk around the streets.
Our last stop will be in Agios Nikolaos for shopping and coffee (we will stay approximately 1,5h).
