As we say goodbye to the summer months, the weather in Crete will still feel pleasantly warm for a good while yet. However, as the average temperature lowers slightly, not every day will feel like a beach day so here are some alternative fun things to do in Crete.
Cave tours in Crete are a popular attraction and can be a fun day out for all the family. One cave that is definitely worth exploring is the Sfendoni Cave, situated in the village of Zoniana.
Hiking is a great way to explore the hidden gems of Crete and early autumn is a particularly good time to trek the Samaria Gorge. The Gorge is a ten-mile trail that starts on the northern entrance of the Samaria Gorge National Park and ends in the Agia Roumeli village.
It’s well worth the drive to get to one of Crete’s most important buildings. The roads twist and turn through the mountains before you eventually reach Arkadi monastery, which is regarded as a national shrine.
