  • I like this small but fine natural park, was regularly in the past few years and am excited by the people working without monetary compensation every time there from new. The Biotopi offers excellent guided tours and explanations of the Crete's native flora and fauna. This year two family shoots were there and found the explanations to the plants very well, they asked questions for use in the Cretan cuisine and received comprehensive answers. There was enthusiasm in terms of animals and the cave, which has a not safe access (by German standards). The view from the plateau to the city are always special.

  • Small, but perfectly wonderful, interesting Park. In the Park of plants collected from all over Crete. I've never loved Botany until visited in this park. The mass of interesting information about virtually every plant. Not so much how many features botanical use, useful or dangerous properties of plants, legends, history ... You know, like Prometheus brought fire to the people? Me neither. And the Park has a plant with which he did it. Tours often hold volunteers and much depends on them. Not all and not everyone knows, but even what know and leave a lot of impressions. In addition to the plants there are rabbits, turtles, iguanas and chameleons. If you bring with you a couple of grasshoppers, will be able to witness the incredible feeding process chameleons:) After the excursion you can descend into a small cave, and then bypass the Park from the top of the Hill. Enjoy stunning views from there. From the waterfront park is about 1 km up. Go a few hard. You can take a taxi up and down already on foot. For children next to the Park play area with trampoline and trampolines (for a fee).

  • This was a really interesting place to visit. The guy that runs the place gave us a tour and sas extremely knowledgeable about Crete and the native flora on the island. If you are interested in learning about the plants native to Crete, this is a must.
  • Fantastic concept...your guide will show you around the nature reserve. The guides are all volunteers and have varying degrees of experience. This is a very personal experience as you will be greeted with an explanation of the concept of the reserve. We were lucky to have chilled lemon and herb infused water and seasonal ripe fruit. Thank you to all the volunteers for our brilliant day x
  • Nice place which is kept alive by volunteers - something you should support for sure...
  • Really interesting place to visit to learn about the local plants and animals. The staff were really nice and interesting too.
  • Beautiful koncept, really sweet voulenteers to guide us around, beautiful nature and view!
