A very special week - Fiona, Manu and Miltos are exceptional hosts and guides. This was a small group holiday with a mix of couples and solo travellers. We stayed in a hotel on Kissamos beach and went out across western Crete each day to swim, hike and eat in excellent local tavernas. The activities were well adapted to the different needs of the group (and taking us further afield to find calm seas on windy days) and well-supported. We swam between islands, over a ship wreck and with a turtle, walked through stunning gorges and along cliff tops, and ate extremely well. As someone who started the week being able to swim 1km but not much more I gained confidence during the week, and did 2.5k on the last day, and always felt well-supported. The group tended to split into a shorter and longer distance ensuring the needs of accomplished triathletes in our group were also met. In amongst the activity, there was plenty of downtime for rest, beach and to explore the local down. All in all an excellent, friendly, relaxing and inspiring holiday. Thank you!
