LOCAL EXPERIENCE - ADVENTURE - FULL DAY
This premium safari road trip is an authentic experience to visit Balos Lagoon in privacy and comfort, since you don't have to schedule your entire day according to the departures of the ferryboats. Arriving at the heights above the magnificent Balos Lagoon you are receiving a lunch box before the hike down to this paradise beach begins. The trip is ideal for everyone who's looking for an experience beyond the ordinary, for example youth groups, single or couple participants, families with older children, and companies.

DETAILS OF YOUR TRIP

Your private escort-driver, with a comfort off-road vehicle, will pick you up from the hotel and you will enjoy an interesting sightseeing tour on parts of North-Western Crete, listening to local stories and enjoy the panoramic views of the area. After Kissamos we will drive along on an off-road route at Gramvousa peninsula until we reach a specific spot at the top of Gramvousa peninsula, above Balos Lagoon where we will have to park the vehicle. From there your escort will direct you to follow a hike route about 20 to 40 minutes down to the mountainside until you reach Balos Lagoon. Find a cozy place on one of the white sandy beaches of Balos and spend 2 hours time there discovering the area and swimming in the crystal clear waters of Balos. On the way back up to the parking and following the same hiking route of 30 to 40 minutes approximately, you will have many opportunities for lifetime memorable panoramic photos of Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa Island from above!

Your lunch packages will be provided by us, as well as a bottle of water, ready to take with you down to the beach. The day closes with a smooth ride through the North coast line of West Crete back to your hotel or villa or accommodation.

A unique premium escape, an exciting adventure to visit Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa Peninsula, swimming in crystal clear waters, embraced by the renowned Greek hospitality and enjoying the sights and professional but relaxed service!
