School Trips In Crete

Our fully catered residential school trips in Crete are based in the fishing village of Kalyves, which is in the Hania district of Crete. From here all our activity locations are less than 40 minutes away. If you want to do some of the more challenging activities, they are a little further away, but only an hour and a half at the maximum. There is a lovely sand beach in the village and a small private beach just across the small road for you to relax on after your day of activities. Also in the village there are plenty of shops and café’s to sit and relax.

School Trips in Crete: Accommodation

The accommodation is very modern and nicely furnished, self-catering flats that can sleep up to 4 people. Everyone is centrally fed in our Taverna in town but it is nice to have your own kitchenette to make the odd snack or cup of tea. Just across the small road is a small private beach for you to enjoy for an early morning dip if you want.

Our Taverna “O Yalos” is a family owned business that prides itself on fresh home-cooked food. There is a variety of traditional Greek dishes and some that are more familiar. The Taverna is right on the beach so you can sit back and enjoy the view while you eat your food.

Please see some of our sample programmes below. We see the programmes as only a starting point and will work closely with you to develop your perfect activity programme.

We also have a range of alternative activities for your school trip in Crete if you would like to change the programme:
