Another one of our recent trips was Crete. Everyone knows Crete as a beautiful holiday destination. Every year countless thousands of people enjoying the luxurious resorts, the deep blue sea and the white sandy beaches that can be found throughout the island. Only a few people know however, that Crete is a wonderful destination before the tourist season starts. April and May offer a perfect chance to see amazing wildflowers in the areas that are not so frequented by tourists. We were there last week with a few botanical experts to enjoy the beauty of those amazing plants! Countless orchids: so many so that it wasn’t possible to walk anywhere without crushing a few…. Different species grow everywhere. We also saw the beautiful giant fennel, Serrula, the wild tulips and the amazing white Ranunculus asiaticus. Now that we’ve seen Crete at this time of year we are already planning a tour for 2020 ! To be one of the first to read about our 2020 tour Crete, please sign up here.
