A plethora of majestic beaches in Greece can be found in difficult-to-access paradises. Balos lagoon (listed in the top 25 beaches of the world) - with its white soft sands, exotic azure waters, and the isolated rugged breathtaking landscape - is not an exception! Enjoy this full-day chauffeur-driven jeep tour, with a private local insider guide, ultimate comfort, and privacy. The exclusive conduction of this day-trip is that you will reach Balos from its hill-side, which means you do not have to stick with the schedule of ferries and tourist masses from Kissamos port.

  • Hotel, villa or cruise personal pick up & drop-off with a Jeep/SUV vehicle at your full-day disposal
  • Bespoke itineraries along Western Crete on the way to Balos Lagoon
  • Authentic Cretan breakfast in a picturesque traditional village
  • Spark your body & mind by relaxing on the pale sands and bathing in the azure shallow waters of Balos
  • Explore with your local insider guide the floating nature reserve of Balos lagoon
  • On the way back, get the best recommendations for a special lunch & wine tasting in the most authentic Cretan places

An exclusive luxury Safari to Balos Lagoon with fully customizable chronological order and comfort since you don't have to schedule your entire day according to the ferry departure and return times to the port of Kissamos.


Enjoy a personal pick up and drop off by your local insider guide and follow bespoke itineraries to the Western Crete. You will drive along the Northern coastal desert road to Balos to a specific spot where you will have to park the vehicle. From there you will have to short-hike about 20 to 40 minutes. On your way down to the mountainside, when finally Balos lagoon will be visible, you will have to assume that it requires an act of pilgrimage, as it is perfectly fitting for such a fine place!


Enjoy your moments on the white sandy beaches of Balos which is an endless palette - it's so hard to describe the infinite beauty of this place! There are sides to choose from, ones with cool deep turquoise water and others with shallow warm water.


On the return to the vehicle, you must not forget to take the lifetime memorable photo of the melting sunset and its romantic vivid colors while drifting behind Balos lagoon! At the end of the day, ask your private guide for recommendations for a delicious Cretan dinner!
