TREASURE HUNT IN THE BOTANICAL PARK OF CRETE Activate your senses to discover the uniqueness of the Cretan flora, along with our interpretive guide


Scientists have described Crete as "the Miniscule Continent". Can you imagine why?
Crete is a small island in the middle of 3 continents, Africa, Asia, and Europe, and it combines characteristics of all of them! Its fauna and flora are the most impressive example of this historical and geological "sharing". Our passionate guide will make you discover the three continents in a impressively green and beautiful Botanical Park, at the outskirts of the renowned National Park of Samaria.


Just a few kilometers away from Chania, between the sea and the mountains, at the feet of the White Mountains, lies a beautiful open-air botanical garden: an area full of mysterious trees, plants and animals ready to be discovered. The well-preserved path crossing it will lead us through sensorial and educational games to the exploration of this hill and the different climatic zones that it represents.

With the help of our interpretive guide, kids and their parents will smell, touch and observe this microcosmos. The game will guide us through paths between trees and flowers in order to find clues to understand why Cretan nature is so important.



  • Meeting at the Botanical Garden.
  • We start to descent the hill zigzagging all along the exotic trees and plants. Treasure hunt gives us the opportunity to explore the area in more detail, while learning with fun!
  • After our tour and game we will go to the garden's wonderful terrace with a great view to the northern coast, where we can relax, enjoy a traditional gastronomic cuisine from the products of the park and talk about Crete far from the touristic crowd.
