Elena's Late Summer Tour 2024

With Elenas on a late summer trip to Crete!

We are very much looking forward to being able to welcome our guests again on Elena's Late Summer Tour 2024, where the trip will once again go to the magnificent Mediterranean island of Crete.

The trip has moved forward a little compared to last year, with still departures from 3 Danish airports.

The late summer tour departs from Aalborg, Billund and Copenhagen from 7/9-24 with return 14/9-24 .

Similar to our other trips, there are exciting excursions included, and we dare to promise that even if you have previously been on one of our trips to Crete, you will also experience something new on the Late Summer Tour with a guarantee. So regardless of whether you have previously been on one of our trips, the Late Summer Tour is definitely something for you if, like us, you love Greece.

Find the departure that suits you by pressing "Book a trip here" and book your trip before it also sells out.

What comes with:

  • Flights from Copenhagen, Billund or Aalborg, hand luggage included + 1 pc. checked baggage (15 kg) per traveler
  • Direct transport to/from the hotel from the airport
  • Accommodation in double rooms at the 3-star Hotel Atrion, Agia Marina ( see video of the hotel here )
  • Large breakfast buffet and dinner buffet every day
  • Lunches with drinks incl. the excursions.
  • 1 x party dinner (incl. drinks)
  • Excursion trips included in the trip:
    Cooking class in Chania with traditional Cretan dishes.
    Mountain tour in comfortable 4-wheel tractors all the way to westernmost Crete, where an exquisite lunch awaits us at Milia Mountain Resort.
    City tour to Chania with sightseeing, shopping and final lunch (included).

In addition, there are scheduled "days off" where you can relax by the pool, go out on your own or perhaps just enjoy it with a good book in the shade of the large palm trees that surround the hotel.

Reservations are made for moving days for excursions and changes in the program as a result of weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

On Saturday, the trip goes home again after a week full of experiences, good impressions and many new acquaintances.

Throughout the trip, it is Elena's founder and founder, Michael Halle, who is the host and guide , so you are in safe hands 24/7.
Through countless trips and longer stays on Crete, Michael has a great knowledge of life before and now on the beautiful island and knows God and every man on especially the western side of Crete, which the trip goes to.

The trip day by day


On arrival in Crete, you will be picked up at the airport by a representative from Elenas, who will take you to your hotel, where you will be assigned rooms and given the opportunity to unpack. As we arrive in Crete from 3 different Danish airports, we also have 3 different arrival times. Therefore, there will only be an information meeting about the trip on Sunday immediately after breakfast.
Those who have an early arrival in Crete will have a buffet dinner on Saturday evening at the hotel. Likewise, those who have a late departure from Crete will be able to have a dinner buffet before departure from Crete.


We start the day with a hearty breakfast in pleasant company, so that we are ready for the first excursions that await.
During the morning we will go on our first trip, which will bring us to Drakona, where we will of course have lunch at Dounias. Those who have been there before know it and love it and those who don't will have a culinary experience they will never forget.


Depending on the number of guests, we drive in one or two teams on the first excursion destination. If we are divided into two teams, one team will travel by bus to the course: Traditional Greek Cooking" where we will have to pick the fruits and vegetables that will be used for the food in a garden in Chania and under expert guidance. It must then be prepared in the traditional way to be eaten with some of the good Greek wine. If you are into weaving, there is also the opportunity to gain an insight into the old weaving methods and take part in the production of the beautiful handwoven textiles. The trip lasts approx. 7 hours.
The second trip (which the other team will go on) is a mountain trip in 4-wheel drive all the way to westernmost Crete. We will have lunch at Milia Mountain Resort, where EVERYTHING is several hundred years behind. There is no electricity and modern conveniences in the surrounding cabins you can rent and everything breathes peace and idyll when you are surrounded by mountains on all sides. In addition, we will take a trip to the Therisso gorge, which is the only gorge in Crete where you can drive a car…..if it is 4-wheel drive, has a permit for it and the weather is suitable


Tuesday offers largely the same program as Monday's program, however with this difference that the two teams we may be divided into change, so that both teams experience both the Traditional Greek Cooking Course and the trip with 4-hole pullers to Milia Mountain Resort.
If we are not divided into two teams, one trip is run on Monday and the other trip on Tuesday, so that EVERYONE gets the opportunity to participate in both trips, each of which is approx. 7 hours duration.
The evening is rounded off with a dinner buffet at the hotel for those who wish.


As usual, the day starts at the breakfast table, but it is up to each individual when they want to have breakfast, because Thursday is largely free to do whatever they want. It may be about pure relaxation and digesting the impressions the previous day has given, a trip in the pool or along the beach, or perhaps just a good book in a sun lounger in the garden under a palm tree.
Since many of our guests have typically visited Crete several times, there may also be places you would like to see again or people you would like to greet. That is why we at Elenas have ensured that, by prior agreement, a rental car will be available at the hotel, from one of our partners, at an extremely reasonable price, so that you can go out on your own and explore exactly what you want.


When we have all had breakfast and are ready, the bus will take us to Chania, where we will tour the old town with all its unique places, architectural diversity, walk through the Turkish and Byzantine quarter, see the sights, the beautiful Trimatiri Cathedral, through the leather street with all the stalls, have the opportunity to shop and perhaps enjoy a frappe or Greek coffee at a sidewalk cafe, before we gather for lunch somewhere in the old town, where we are spoiled with several delicious Cretan and Greek dishes kitchen.
After this, the trip goes back to the hotel after another day with one on the experience.
Since we don't want our guests to go to bed hungry, there is of course a dinner buffet again at the hotel, if it is eventually possible to squeeze in a bit more.
Otherwise, the evening is intended for relaxing shared fun for those who want to.


Most of Friday is like Wednesday for free use and relaxation (it's a holiday trip after all 😊)
However, the last evening must end in style and it will be when we meet at Romeos Taverne for a feast with drinks ad libitum with the food.


On Saturday we will leave the hotel in 2-3 teams to reach the respective departures. Those who have a late departure will be able to partake in the dinner buffet in the evening before taking the bus.
We have to be out of our rooms during the morning, but for those who have to leave only in the evening, rooms will be arranged for storage, changing and showering.
