Discover why scientists describe Crete as "the Miniscule Continent" with a treasure hunt at the Botanical Gardens. Because the island shares the environment of three continents (Africa, Asia, and Europe), it offers an impressively diverse fauna and flora. Crete contains some of the most impressive examples of this historical and geological "sharing."

On this family treasure hunt, you'll explore all three continents in a beautiful, green setting on the outskirts of the renowned Natural Park of Samaria. Encounter peacocks and hunt for banana trees and try to spy the rarest flowers in the garden. After the tour and a game, you'll enjoy traditional cuisine at the garden’s terrace overlooking the northern coast. Your host will continue to share interesting information about the island's natural environment and answer any questions.
