Description

This tour will travel you through scenic countryside and offer a journey in the island’s farming and culinary trails with an intimate perspective of today’s Crete. Visits will include an estate producing olive oil , a local winery and a rustic family run eatery. Biolea, our first stop, is an ecological prototype farm cultivated by 5th generation owners that promote the traditional way of organic olive oil production – the olive oil is stone milled and cold pressed. We will be guided around their premises and have an olive-oil tasting, accompanied by the owners.

Continuing our exploration through a verdant landscape with orange and olive groves, we will visit a quaint winery, the realization of a lifelong dream of a Greek-American owner, who was born and raised in this small village. Escorted by an expert, you will be navigate around the grounds and then taste their excellent wines. Driving along the foothills of the White Mountains, we will enjoy a delicious Cretan meal, a family run tavern that enjoys a great setting before the return journey to your hotel in the late afternoon.
