Full description

Experience a night dedicated to music, dancing, and tasty local food during this Cretan folklore night in Karouzana, a traditional village near Heraklion. Sip on wine and taste local products such as cheese, olive oil, and meat during a buffet meal.

Reaching the ancient village after pickup, walk through this magnificent place and experience the locals’ hospitality.

At dusk, enjoy a traditional feast. Taste delicious dishes with cheese, virgin olive oil, meat, and other products of Cretan soil.

Get treated with the wine, listen to the sound of the Cretan Lyra (Greek musical instrument), and take delight in looking at the dancers, dressed in their traditional costumes performing Cretan and Greek folk dances.

At the end of the night, join the dancers, who will teach you the basic steps. Dance with others using a special 2-meter band so that everyone can keep a safe distance while having fun.

Have a good time while still feeling safe: eating and drinking will be individual and sterile as required by law and waiters will wear masks and gloves. The seats and the tables will also have the appropriate spacing in accordance with legal requirements.
