Through the central message “Sense the Authentic”, we are building a campaign that invites visitors to discover everything that composes the unique tourism experience of Crete. It encourages visitors to feel, to experience with all their senses the hospitality, as offered by the locals and the tourism professionals, expressed through the passion and love for their work, but also through their deeply rooted moral obligation to offer the “best” and, most importantly, the “authentic”. With more than 1,000 kilometers of coastline, rich history, aromas and flavors that fascinate, Crete, the birthplace of Europe’s oldest civilization, welcomes its visitors with optimism and continues to offer, especially in this unprecedented time, authentic relations with the visitors, based on mutual responsibility.

“To travel by canoe is to ponder where we came from, where we are, where we’re going, who we were, who we are and who we can be. Suspended between the world above and the world below. Stillness in harmonic motion. These are the paddles’ promises. To paddle is to plug into the energies of the place, the land, the air, the water, the ancestors, the children who are yet to be born The paddle connects us to all of that. To pull is to connect to the river itself but also to the land that nourishes. To be there, to be connected, as a mix of Canadians new and old. If it is love that binds people to places in this nation of rivers and in this river of nations, then one enduring expression of that simple truth, is surely the canoe.” – James Raffan, adventurer, acclaimed author and Director Emeritus of the Canadian Canoe Museum.
