Crete, Discovering the soul of a star

It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean welcoming some 3 million tourists annually while at the same time it is the perfect place to venture into the wilderness and the unspoiled beauty of nature, both coastal and mountainous!


For those familiar only with the overcrowded northern resorts it may come as a surprise, but the truth is that Crete is legendary among Greeks for its authenticity and originality. Cretans are known for their free-spirit, their warm hospitality, their passion for music and dance and of course for their ‘addiction’ to great food. Either you want to take an insight into a juvenile though deeply rooted in the past society, to hike on mountains and gorges, to visit world famous archaeological sites, to spend time in picturesque villages far away form the tourist hustle and bustle or just to relax by the beach, this is the place to be all year round.

In our last trip to Crete, we spent one month wandering with our camper van from one coast to the other searching to capture the beauty and the variety of this magnificent island along with gathering information about the facilities offered to itinerant tourists. Exploring Crete with a motorhome could be a truly memorable experience.
