Chrissi Island: An exceptional day out to a tropical paradise set in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan sea. Sunbathe on the wondrous beaches of unusual coloured sand.
Unknown Crete: Travel through unspoilt villages where donkeys still travel the roads. Visit a local winery to see how the wine is made, with the opportunity to sample and buy.
Cretan Night: If you love food, drink and dancing, then you'll love this night out. As you enter the venue, the Cretan atmosphere takes hold as the evening continues with eating, drinking and merrymaking as only the Greeks know how.
Knossos: If you visit Crete and do not see the ancient palace of Knossos it compares to visiting Egypt and not seeing the pyramids. This is where European civilisation began with the dazzling Minoan people.
Jeep Safari: Travel off the beaten track through traditional mountain villages - your chance to get a taste of the real Greece.
Beach Party: Join your Olympic Reps on your very own sandy beach for an afternoon of partying in the sun! An hour and a half free bar will get you in the mood to join in the games.
For further information and to secure your place on any of the above exciting days and nights out, see your Olympic representative in resort. The best time to book is at the Welcome Get Together on the day after arrival.
