The Fun Train

Western Adventure

The beginning of our journey combines the villages of Maleme, Tavronitis and Rapaniana before heading further westwards and touching on the outskirts of the traditional fishing village of Kolymbari. Here our journey turns inland and to the south, bound for the most traditional village of Marathokefala, where time really seems to stand still with its everyday slow pace of life. This village is our first stop and the highlight of this area, “The cave and church of Saint John” which holds an eerie tale! Reaching Vouves village , we have the chance to visit its “Olympic Olive Tree”. It’s recorded as the oldest in the Meditteranian and is the source of olive leaf crowns for recent Olympic games. This surely gives us a perfect location for our first refreshment stop with the locals. Our final stop provides a unique opportunity to witness “Raki” making – the local firewater said to be 40% Vol based! However there are other, more delicate products available to taste and purchase at this point. A mixture of panoramic views, villages, intriguing highlights and friendly hospitality all combined to make this an ideal way to start your early evening!
