Archanes – Giouxtas – Knossos Palace


We drive by mini-bus to Archanes Village and start our hike under Mount Utah, climbing an old, steep path leading to a small church. Then we descend on the west side of Mount Utah along a short marked path, and continue back to Archanes Village. During the hike we will have the opportunity to admire & photograph the beautiful natural landscape and wild birds. Once back in the village, the mini-bus will drive us down to the archaeological site of Knossos for a tour of the Minoan Palace site before returning to your hotels.
