Cheap Flights to Heraklion

CreteCrete is the largest and most diverse of the Greek Islands and is steeped in myths and legends. It is said to be the birthplace of modern civilisation and evidence of it can still be seen today. The Palace of Knossos, dating back to 1900 BC, was the grand capital of Minoan Crete and you can still see the ruins of the immense palace, courtyards, private apartments and baths. The little island of Spinalonga, an abandoned leper colony and fort on the north-eastern tip of Crete, is also worth a visit. Compare and book your flights to Crete (Heraklion) now and enjoy a pleasant flight with us.

Crete also boasts some of the best, unspoilt landscapes that the Greek Islands has to offer, including Samaria Gorge National Park which is a top natural sight to visit and explore, and doable even for the most inexperienced of hikers.

A popular place to stay in Crete is Chania Town built up around the historic Venetian built harbour. It has a bustling market, lovely traditional restaurants and tavernas and some lovely stretches of sandy beach nearby.

A great way to explore the island is to hire a car and see where it takes you. Or take a boat trip to some nearby islands, or go even further a field by taking a ferry and island hopping across some of the other famous Greek Islands.

Crete is a beautiful island to immerse yourself in Greek history, culture, food and Ouzo. Check out our latest flight deals to Heraklion here.
