Your private escort-driver, with a comfortable off-road vehicle, will pick you up from the hotel, and you will enjoy an exciting sightseeing tour on parts of North-Western Crete, listening to local stories and enjoy the panoramic views of the area. After Kissamos, we will drive along on an off-road route at Gramvousa peninsula until we reach a specific spot at the top, above Balos Lagoon, There we have to park the vehicle since the road stops. From there, your escort will direct you to follow a hiking route about 30 to 40 minutes down to the mountainside until you reach Balos Lagoon. Find a cosy place on one of the white sandy beaches of Balos and spend 2 hours there discovering the area and swimming in the crystal clear waters of Balos. On the way back up to the parking and following the same hiking route of 30 to 40 minutes, you will have many opportunities for lifetime memorable panoramic photos of Balos Lagoon and Gramvousa island from above!
Your lunch packages will be provided by us, as well as a bottle of water, ready to take with you down to the beach. The day closes with a smooth ride through the North coastline of West Crete back to your hotel or villa, or accommodation.
