Full description

Enjoy a small-group day trip with shorter transfer times and less time stuck in tour buses. Travel to northeastern Crete, visit Agios Nikolaos and see its beautiful scenery, and take a boat trip to Spinalonga Island on this exciting day tour of some of Crete's most interesting sites.

Begin the day with the visit to Agios Nikolaos and see the shore of Mirabello Bay. Explore the town, famous for the lake at its center and its shopping and cafes.

Take your time for a walk to enjoy the views, enjoy some shopping or have a drink in one of the numerous cafes around the lake. Explore an open-air market on Wednesdays. Move on to see Elounda village, a former fishing village on the northern coast of the island. Depart from Elounda for the cruise to Spinalonga Island.

Learn about the island's vibrant history, from a home for the Venetians and Turks to a place of isolation for those suffering from leprosy.
