Chania, Crete

The deep mystery of Crete
Chania, Crete - 7 days

“The mystery of Crete runs deep. Whoever sets foot on this island senses a mysterious force coursing warmly and beneficently through their veins, sensing their soul beginning to grow”

Nikos Kazantzakis

Trip Overview

This trip is designed to give you a brief taste of Chania touching on each of my passions for the destination; the food, the vibe, the diversity, the adventure, the beaches, the culture and the people. It recommends flying directly to Chania, using the old town of Chania as your base and a car as your means of transport for the daily road trips and excursions, exploring the best the region has to offer.

Getting into the vibe
