Everything in one place

Crete, according to Greek mythology, the birthplace of Zeus.

Although Crete is a large island, you can still in one holiday experience a large part of what the island has to offer. Everything from Europe’s longest gorge, the Samaria Gorge, and picturesque seaports to luscious beaches like the utterly fabulous – and pink – Elafonissi beach, relaxing mornings, afternoons and evenings at one of the many tavernas – or how about a shopping spree in the locals’ market hall in the main town of Chania?

Greece in a nutshell

For many years, the island has been one of the Danes’ favourite destinations for a sun holiday – and we fully understand! Because Crete offers a veritable mecca of everything we associate with holidays: Fabulous nature, lots of history, welcoming locals, food, food and more food, a high degree of authenticity and great child-friendly sandy beaches.
