AROUND THE AREA OF RETHYMNO
Many would frown upon Rethymno, "why it is a city with no airport or a large sea port, what could there even be there that would interest us?" they might say. On the contrary, Rethymno is a beautiful Cretan city with a wonderful surrounding territory (mainly mountainous) with gorges to walk through and spectacular beaches throughout the area. There is regular bus service to villages in the mainland and Cretan people are more than willing to greet you, even if they don't speak your language!
Is horse back riding what you like? If so you can ride along the Rethymno beach, wave at us at the camp taverna while passing by or walk through the gorge trail of Prasses.
Also if you're really into horses you might want to ask about the special Cretan breed of "Agiogiorgitika" horses.
Why not walk to Mili Gorge and spend an interesting refreshing morning walking through a green oasis minutes away from Camping Elizabeth? We at the reception will provide you the right guidelines to find the entrance to the gorge.
TAKE A RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE (OF CRETE)
Many scruf when asked to go for a trip to the south coast of Crete. They think it's too far away. But it isn't! Maybe a 50 minute drive but it's worth it because the beaches there are pretty as anything. Try it!
WALK THROUGH THE OLD TOWN
Rethymno is a city that combines Greek, Roman, Venetian and Ottoman history, and remnants of all can be found in the old town of Rethymno. It is mainly build in a Venetian way, being one of the finest examples of such a city in Crete, with narrow streets and impressive old houses that many have turned into boutique hotels.
At the end of a romantic or just plain fun night, you can stop for a drink or food at any of many bars and restaurants around the old town!
CITY OR MOUNTAIN BIKING
You can rent a bike just feet away from the camp or use the hop on - hop off bike sharing system and bike your way to Rethymno city or to the outer parts, stoping for experiences on the way!
