On this excursion to the deserted island of Spinalonga, you'll discover the amazing story of the leprosy patients who sought refuge in this part of Crete. You'll also get to visit a wine cellar!

Spinalonga Day Trip

At 9 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Heraklion and hit the road through the north of the island to Kritsa, one of Crete's oldest and most picturesque villages.

Here, we'll take a guided tour of the village and visit the 12th-century church of Panagia Kera, which houses some of the best-preserved Byzantine-era frescoes in Crete.

We'll then travel by minibus to the village of Plaka, where we'll take a boat to the deserted island of Spinalonga, a place overflowing with history.

Once we arrive, we'll embark on a tour through the ruins of a fortress that used to welcome leprosy patients from Crete and the rest of Greece looking for a place to spend the rest of their days. Your guide will tell you all about the treatments introduced by a special doctor who came to help the people of Spinalonga.

Discover the history of this forgotten place as you wander through the ruins of the houses, hospitals and buildings that belonged to this community. You'll also visit the famous castle of Spinalonga. An unforgettable experience!

Then, the group will return to the boat, and we'll head back to Plaka. After refueling at a local restaurant with a delicious traditional meal, we'll make our way to a winery in Crete.

Learn about the island's winemaking process as you take a tour of the vineyards and the inside of the winery. After the tour, you'll get to taste three of the wines for yourself!

At the end of the excursion, you will be taken back to your hotel in Heraklion, arriving at approximately 5 pm.
