   This excursion is a trip back in time since it carries the sensation and the feel of another era…
Our excursion starts from the beautiful harbor of Elounda where we will get on board to visit the bay of and the beach of Kolokitha. Here you have plenty of time for swimming at the crystal clear waters, tasting the BBQ served on board. The menu includes pork* chop BBQ, Greek salad, feta cheese, bread, wine or Fanta and seasonal fruit. After our visit at the bay of Kolokitha (app. 1 ½ hours) we depart for the island of Spinalonga. The history and the culture of the island of Spinalonga became one with human tragedy in the course of time. This small isle carries within the history of Ancient Greece, as it served as a natural guard for the ancient city of Olous ; the history of Saracens as a hide-out for their pirates; the history of Venetians as their fortress; the history of Turks as their settlement (guided tour on the island).
    Starting 20th century , a leper colony in the island was established ; thousands of people lived remotely... as the colony was ended in 1957 modern generations have the duty to restore their memory... 

   As we head towards our last destination from Elounda by bus, we will have the opportunity for a quick olive oil tasting, before arriving the capital town of Lasithi, Agios Nikolaos. There, you can relax in a café next to the bottomless Lake of Voulismeni and enjoy your walk to the local shops.
