From Elounda you take the boat and cruise along the bay to the island of Spinalonga (sometimes called the island of Tears). The guided tour on Spinalonga will both fascinate and haunt you as you learn the tragic history of this island which was once a Venetian fortress and was then the isolated home of many lepers up to 1957 when it was cleared by the Health Authorities, leaving the place uninhabited. The Venetians constructed a very impressive fortress with forty cannons which has been guarding the strategic bay of Mirabello since the 15th century. We get on board again and head for the sandy bay of Kolokitha. Here you will have time for resting or swimming and have lunch. The boat will take you back to Elounda to take the coach. Agios Nikolaos is famous for its picturesque ‘bottomless lake’. You will have some time to discover this pretty little town on your own, to stroll around the shops or just relax in one of the popular cafes and watch the world go by.

Samaria Gorge Hike from Heraklion region
"I really enjoyed the experience. I mean, if you don't have a semi-decent to a solid set of core muscles, you are going to hate life and all of creation. But, I mean, it's no lazy stroll around the fish pond. The first near half of the hike is downhill and steep. Do not underestimate that steepness. I've hiked insane hikes in Gunnison National Park (Colorado, US) and others. This hike was its own adventure: for the muscles and soul. Pretty sure my guardian angel walked out on me after. It's all good; I'm sure another will take up the helm. I had Marcos from Orange Tours, and he was great. He's funny, light-hearted, and has more energy than he probably should. He's great. A tip, when your guide says, "I won't bore you with the history," but then says, "if you have questions, ask, or this is your time for the mic," that means they are leaving the floor open for you. I read someone complains about the lack of history . . . dude, Marcos went one-by-one asking people, answering people, and so forth. I mean, it really was personalized. The sack lunches were sweet, as trail mix and fruit will not cut it on this one. Also, refill along the trail. The water is cold, it is good, and you will need it."..."
