Overview

A great tour for animal and shopping lovers as you visit a nature reserve and explore a coastal town and hilltop village where the art, clothing, and food of Crete are on colorful display.

Visit the Amazonas Park, a nature reserve, which is only one of three in the world. It is a privately owned park by three friends from Luxembourg who rescue endangered animals, mostly birds, breed them and place the animals back into the wild.

Take a scenic drive through rolling countryside to the town of Agios Nikolaos, where tiny boutiques and local vendors exhibit their wares. Stalls bursting with freshly-picked fruits and vegetables and finely-woven garments fill the streets and delight the senses.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel in Heraklion and taken to Amazonas Park. An English-speaking will accompany you at all times.

At the Amazonas Park, learn about conservation and rainforests, and come face to face with some of the world’s most unusual, beautiful and endangered creatures. At the park, you will find the smallest specimens of lorikeets to big macaws and tucans. The peacocks roam freely throughout the park. You can feed the animals and hold a tortoise.

Next, take a beautiful coach ride to Agios Nikolaos, an idyllic harbor town nestled among undulating hills. Walk along the main street, where you can explore the town’s array of stylish boutiques. You’ll arrive on market day, so the street will be bursting at the seams with colorful stalls displaying clothing and homemade jewelry, in addition to fruits and vegetables, local honey, and fragrant herbs.

After the end of the tour you will be dropped back to your hotel.
