Sailing Or Boat Tour
Island of Spinaloga Tour - Crete
About This Tour
Our tour starts with a transfer to the port of Elounda to embark on our boat heading to the island. Spinalonga is a great island with Venetian fortresses and amazing history. The island holds stories of survival in the early 20th century from the curse of leprosy and today is a place of great archaeological significance.
Our tour takes us by boat to the island where we will walk among the small roads of one of Europe’s last leper colonies that was operating until 1957. The Venetian castle-town that still holds is impressive by itself and the professional guides will inform us about this island’s rich history. We will also have the opportunity to visit the interpretive center on the island and discover the settlements of the victims and survivors of this past illness.
We will return back where we will enjoy ample time for swimming in Elounda and a lunch will be prepared for us there with Cretan local products on a beach side taverna. After the lunch we will visit the picturesque village of Agios Nikolaos on our way back to the hotel.
