Mediterranean Culture and Cuisine Immersion Workshop in Crete, Greece

Join us on a journey of discovery on the magnificent isle of Crete, the center of Mediterranean Diet research. We'll explore the region during private, expert-guided tours of amazing archaeological sites, natural parks/botanical hikes, organic farms, olive oil factories and wineries. We'll learn more about "food as medicine" during cooking classes with professional chefs and presentations by health professionals and alternative medicine practitioners.


This is a Responsible Travel in Action program. Workshop attendees have an incredibly rare and beneficial opportunity to discover Crete’s heritage in the company of resident-specialists, while supporting community-run preservation initiatives. Space is limited to 20 Attendees.
