Richtis Waterfall and North Coast Tour

1. Richtis Waterfall and North Coast Tour

Take a tour to Richtis beach on the far side of Mirabello Bay and trek through the forest to the stunning Richtis waterfall. After pickup from your accommodation, enjoy the beautiful scenery on the 1-hour drive to the bay of Mirabello. Leave the asphalt and travel off road down to Richtis beach, hugging the mountainside.  Park at the bottom and enter Richtis gorge to start the 30-minute walk to reach the falls. Follow a trail through the forest, listening to the sounds of birds and running water. Stop to admire the incredible waterfalls, with time to climb up the stairs to the top of the falls, take photos, or swim in the cool waters.  When you are ready to leave, head back to the beach along the same trail. During the tour you’ll enjoy a traditional lunch at a local tavern, with wine and water included. At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel in the Elounda area.

From Agios Nikolaos: Sarakina Gorge and South Coast Tour

2. From Agios Nikolaos: Sarakina Gorge and South Coast Tour

This tour will take you high into the mountains of the Lassithi Range (or Dikti Range), offering you an abundance of stunning panoramic views. Picking you up from your accommodation at 10:00AM, you will then start your climb up through several very picturesque traditional villages, one of which you shall stop at for a short break to shop or grab coffee. You will next go off road and move on up through the Kroustas Forest to a point approximately 1,000 meters above sea level. From way up there you will be able to see both the Lybian Sea (south coast) and the Aegean Sea (north coast). You will also be able to view the stunning peaks of the snow capped Mount Spathi (2,140 meters above sea level, second highest on the island), whose north face is home of the Psychro Cave, birth place of the Greek god Zeus. The views you will encounter throughout your tour can't be beaten, and there will be plenty of opportunities to stop for photographs. Whilst in the mountains you will be taken to a traditional Greek taverna for a meze lunch with local wine, and at the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned to your point of origin.

What people are saying about Elounda

By far one of the best tours! We were on the road with Petra today and learned so much about the island and made great stops. The gorge was the highlight of the tour. But the food in the Greek taverna was also delicious. Petra took the time to answer all questions and would book this tour again and again! Thank you again dear Petra ☺️

Nice Dutch guide. Got a lot of information. And a nice day with 2 English people and Petra. Food was also very tasty and good. It was also nice but 1 jeep instead of a group of jeeps.

Very nice trip with swimming in the waterfall as the highlight. Petra is of course also a fantastic guide.

A very nice excisions a very nice guide and a restaurant with a breathtaking view! I recommend
