SEA AND SUN - FULL DAY. NEW 2021! NEW 2021! Preveli is located about 35km south of Rethymno and 10km east of Plakias. Beach of Preveli, also known as Lake Preveli or Phoenix, is located at the exit of the imposing Kourtaliotis Gorge, where the Great River (Megas Potamos) flows. It is certainly the most famous beach in south Crete, accepting thousands of visitors every summer. DETAILS OF YOUR TRIP During the 60s and 70s, it was a favorite destination for the hippies. On the banks of the Grand River there is a large colony of Theophrastus palm trees, which give the region a sense of a tropical landscape. The river, forming a small lake, 500m long, before emptying into the sea, has water all year round. You can walk along the river, under the shade of palm trees and other trees, and start ascending in the beautiful canyon. You can swim in the cold ponds formed in the gorge. A big fire in 2010 burnt almost everything of this paradise, but the palmgrove recovered and still remains a heaven on earth. At the exit of the river, a sandy beach with pebbles and sand is formed, with sea water being very cool due to the river. In the eastern part of the beach, there is a beautiful rock reminding of a heart. The beach is not well organized because the area is protected, without any umbrellas. You will come from the bus to Preveli by boat. Boat schedule : 11:30 Damnoni - Preveli & 15:00 Preveli - Plakia/Damnoni Please note that Rubbish disposal and taking seashells from the Beach is strictly prohibited.

ULKOILU - 1/2 PÄIVÄ Opastettu kävely syrjäiselle rotkoalueelle. Kulje pitkin luonnollista rotkolaaksoa ihaillen pystysuoria kallioita, jotka ovat täynnä luolia korppikotkien lennellessä yläpuolellasi. Koe Välimeren kasvillisuus ja eläimistö upeassa ympäristössä.   RETKIKUVAUS Tapaamme Kissamoksessa ja tarjoamme kuljetuksen kävelyreitin alkupisteeseen. Rotkon läpi johtaa useimmille vaeltajille helppokulkuinen polku. Kävellessämme kuulet hieman alueen historiaa sekä perehdymme mielenkiintoisiin asioihin rotkossa ja sen ympäristössä. Aromaattiset yrtit, kuten timjami ja salvia, kasvavat ympäri vuoden täyttäen ilman tuoksuillaan. Vuohet vaeltavat vapaina rotkossa ja jos olemme onnekkaita, saatamme nähdä majesteettiset korppikotkat, jotka elävät ja pesivät korkeilla kallioilla. Rotkon kulkeminen päästä päähän kestää noin 2,5 tuntia ja saman verran takaisin. Tarvittaessa voimme myös tehdä lyhyemmän reitin, kävellä osan matkasta rotkoon ja kääntyä takaisin jo aikaisemmin. Vaelluksen päätyttyä palaamme Kissamokseen autolla.    Huom! Osallistumisen edellytyksenä on pystyä kävelemään noin 2 tuntia kivisessä maastossa.

Auringonlaskun Elafonissi

AURINKO JA MERI -  ILTAPÄIVÄ/ILTA-AIKAAN Koe yksi saaren rakastetuimmista rannoista, Elafonissi! Täydellinen sinulle, joka haluat nukkua pidempään aamulla... Lähde mukaan iltapäiväretkelle Kreetan kauneimmalle rannalle ja lopeta päiväsi upeaan auringonlaskuun!     RETKIKUVAUS Matka Elafonissiin alkaa hieman puolenpäivän jälkeen, noin klo 13. Opas antaa sinulle kaikki tarvittavat tiedot retken kulusta bussissa englanniksi ja tarvittatessa saksaksi ja kreikasi. Saavumme Elafonissiin noin klo 15 ja viivymme rannalla klo 19 asti. (Syys-lokakuussa ajat hieman muuttuvat, sillä auringonlasku on aikaisemmin.)  Paluumatkalla länsirannikon kautta pysähdymme illalliselle Amygdalokefaliin ravintolaan, josta avautuu sijaintinsa ansiosta ehkäpä alueen kaunein auringonlasku. Näkymä merelle on henkeäsalpaavan kaunis ja hyvin romanttinen. Paluu Haniaan on noin klo 22:00 mennessä. Retki soveltuu erityisesti aamuunisille, jotka kulkevat mielummin pienemmän ryhmän mukana. Ryhmän koosta johtuen pysähdyksiä mennen tullen on vähemmän ja matka sujuu nopeammin. Myöhemmin iltapäivällä ja illalla Elafonissin rannalla on myös huomattavasti vähemmän muita ja tunnelma rauhallisempi. Upea auringonlasku on varmasti yksi loman ikimuistoisimpia
