From airport to resort

We haven't been to crete before. Could anyone advise how long it takes to get from the airport to Elounda. Is the journey hairy or straight forward. Not very good if I have to travel through mountains!!

Bit of a coward!

Hiya - if you're flying into Heraklion then to take a taxi to Elounda is probs only about 45 mins, not an horriffic journey either and about 60 euros. If you've got a coach transfer it can take up to 2 hours.

As i recall the journey is not too bad and i think the only dodgy bit is if you going on the transfer coach some of the hotels are up hills and the coach driver has to reverse - the drivers are complete lunatics though!!

You'll be fine!!
