Chania Day Trip
Chania – Day Trip

Join this day trip to the attractive landscape of the White Mountains, by exploring its culinary trails, bringing the Cretan nature to the table with a flavored detour!

The White Mountains at the south of Chania region is the largest mountain range in Crete, with peaks of over than 2000m altitude and more than 50 deep gorges, many of them ending at the sea. These enormous limestone masses offer not only a shelter to the indigenous flora & fauna but also fascinating views to the visitor. Get a taste of this attractive landscape by exploring its culinary trails!

We start the day with a visit to the famous Winery of Manousakis family. After a guided tour to the premises and introduction to wine-making, we will taste the variety of their organic Nostos Wines along with some local cheese and rusks. Leaving the winery we will head to a botanical park of unique standards where numerous types of trees, plants and herbs –even of different climatic regions– are cultivated and grow in harmony. A guided tour to the signposted paths of the park will be offered with a thorough introduction to the local flora.

Learn everything about Cretan herbs and edible greens and go on with a cooking class of local recipes based on these very ingredients! Taste the fruits of your labor in a country-style lunch, surrounded by the colors and essences of the park.
