After meeting in Chania, your guide will accompany you on a local bus which will take you to a quiet seaside village off the tourist trail. After walking around and enjoying a breakfast of local produce, the activity begins!
You guide will take you along a hiking trail towards the ancient city of Lissos, passing under pine trees and over hills. As you get higher, the views of the gorge and the sea become increasingly more stunning. The hike takes about 90 minutes, including rest stops and photo opportunities along the way until you eventually reach Lissos.
It is thought that the city was inhabited from the 4th century, and you can spend an hour here walking among the ruins, imagining what life must have been like back in the past. There is also a spring here which you can drink from, and the waters are said to have healing properties – ideal on a hot day!
On leaving the city, the hike continues for another hour to a beach, where you can spend a couple of hours swimming and relaxing. From here, you then take a fishing boat to view the coastline from the sea, and stop off at a quaint village. Here, you can take part in a cookery class, where you can bake your own traditional sweet!
Afterwards, an hour can be spent in the coastal town of Paleochora, which has a unique atmosphere. Finally, it is time to depart for Chania once more.
