Treasure Hunt in the Botanical Garden

Learn the secret of Crete close to Chania

Scientists have described Crete as… “the Miniscule Continent”… Can you imagine why? Crete is a small island in the middle of 3 continents: Africa, Asia, Europe… and it combines characteristics of all of them! Its fauna and flora are the most impressive example of this historical and geological “sharing”. Enjoy this family Treasure Hunt and you will discover three continents in an impressively green and beautiful Botanical Garden, at the outskirts of the renowned Natural Park of Samaria, just a few kilometers away from Chania.

The treasure hunt will give you the opportunity to explore the area in more detail, while learning with fun. After the tour and the game, we will enjoy the traditional cuisine at the garden’s wonderful terrace overlooking the northern coast and discussing about Crete far from the touristic crowd.

While in Crete with kids, you are recommended to check all MAMAKITA kid-friendly activities.
