A short 17km coach trip inland takes you to the foothills of the White Mountains where the 20 hectares of land has been transformed into a Botanical Park. A huge range of fruit trees from all over the world, herbs, medicinal & ornamental plants are amongst the lovely Cretan hills. On arrival at the park you are welcomed with a traditional tea & honey drink. You are then taken to the kitchen of the traditional restaurant where you are welcome to participate in preparing a typical Cretan meal (tzatziki & boureki).
