Chania Rowing Tour
September 9 – September 15, 2019
Chania is one of the most beautiful and picturesque cities in Greece, located on the northwest coast of the Greek island of Crete. It’s known for its 14th-century Venetian harbor, narrow streets and waterfront restaurants. At the harbor entrance is a 16th-century lighthouse with Venetian, Egyptian and Ottoman influences. Old Town, where we’ll be staying is colorful and lively. And for food lovers, it’s paradise! Not far from Old Town is Souda Bay, where the local rowing club is located.
We will take the 15min drive from Old Town Chania to the boathouse every morning of our stay there. Boat selection is based on preferences and skill levels. The camp is open for all skill levels, including complete beginners. Coaching is provided by iROW Tours founder and rowing coach Iva Boteva.
We will row every morning with exception of Arrival Day, Sept 9. On some of the afternoons you can rest or explore on your own and on others we will have scheduled guided tours or other non-rowing activities. These will include a guided tour Old Town of Chania, which is divided into 3 major districts, where once Christians, Muslims and Jews lived through history. We will also walk through the local markets to learn about different Cretan products and enjoy some olive oil and wine tasting. We will surely save some time for a spa visit, spa conveniently located in our hotel 🙂
And about the hotel, expect a luxury hidden oasis, both old and new, exquisite and one of a kind. Located in Old Town Chania, but away from the louder areas, you will surely enjoy the legendary Cretan breakfasts with organic products, the harbor views from the roof top bar, the superior services and the STORY of the hotel.
