have always been part of Greek Mythology and History, from
the birth of Zeus, the Father of Gods, to the most recent
European History. Caving trips combine holidays with the
exploration of some of the most beautiful caves decorated
with natural sculptures.
Until now the speleologists have recorded more than 3500 caves in Crete. Many caves on Crete are of archaeological, paleontological and historical interest. Man used the caves as places of worship and as dwellings from the Paleolithic Era on. The Minoans were worshiping their gods in small palatial or house shrines, in sacred caves and in shrines built on mountain peaks.
We visit these unique natural formations with a lot of respect, by the accompaniment of our special guides, who will guide you through the mystery and the legends.
