You will come across the Botanical Park at the foothills of the White Mountais in Skodalou village, 15 km from the center of Chania town. It is a private walking, educational and recreational venture which has managed to impress. If you follow the marked out path, you will have the opportunity to observe the rich flora of Crete, which is a result of the good climate. The samples are divided into separate categories, such as Mediterranean garden with fruit trees, Mediterranean herb and plant garden, citrus, tropical garden, vines and cherry trees. You will also discover the fauna of Crete on the tour, more specifically, the world of butterflies, farm animals and wildlife on the island. Traditional Cretan recipes are prepared in the Botanical Park restaurant which revive traditional cooking methods, including the wood fired oven, chimnea, hotplate etc. All the dishes are made from local produce.
