Cretan Experience Tour – Special Big Lunch

  • Friday
  • 10:30 - 17:00
  • Pickup: Panormo Village & Bali Village
  • EN, FR, DE, RUS

At ‘’the shepherd’s shelter’’, we milk, make cheese, shear sheep, distil RAKI, have fun and enjoy a special big lunch. The highlight of your holidays!

During this excursion you’ll have a real experience of Cretan life, culture, tradition, hospitality, history, legends and authentic flavors of Crete. You will see the Cretan countryside; you will come closer to nature, animals, and people of Crete living an unforgettable day.

Our first stop will be at one of the last traditional firewood oven bakeries that still remain in Crete. We watch and learn the whole process of baking and we taste the delicious traditional rusks, “Cretan dakos”, and other local delicacies.

Then, at an altitude of about 1000 meters (3280 feet), on the mountain of Idi (Psiloritis) and very close to the highest peak, Andreas and his family welcome us at his house, a shepherd’s shelter, named “Mitato”, and show us the habits and the daily life of the Cretan shepherds. We watch and participate in sheep’s milking and shearing and in the cheese production using traditional methods. You may also have the chance to distill “raki” (depending the time of the year) and have several shots of it.

After that, all together, as a group of friends, we enjoy an unlimited, special, big lunch in the countryside. A representative example of the Cretan diet, made of pure ingredients, originated from regional recipes.

We savor local lamb, cooked in a unique way, called “antikristo”, which gives to the meat a special taste, homemade French fries, fresh salad, the cheese that we’ve made previously, other delicious local dishes and wine, all of them organic and produced in their farm.

We promise, this excursion is far too different than any other,it will be the highlight of your holiday and you’ll remember that day for a lifetime!!!

Limitless food, wine and raki for everyone!
