Our day is the perfect way to explore the central part of Crete with two different plateaus, mythology and lots of fun and interesting information about Crete and the local life. Our journey takes us to the plateau of Katharo passing through the biggest forest on the island, where the roads are non-existent and the mountains reach a height of 1.500 metres, there will be a refreshment stop at a local kafenion somewhere in this wilderness!! We then continue through the dirt tracks, goat valley and across rivers, this is where the journey really gets exciting.

Our next stop gives you the opportunity to take photographs from a helicopter view of the Lassithi Plateau from where we drop down to the plateau for your BBQ lunch, with unlimited wine. After lunch we take you back in time on a visit to the Eco Village where you can see local crafts being made as they were in olden times. Our next stop is Zeus’s cave where mythology says that Zeus, the father of all the gods was born, there is a 4 euro entrance fee and walking shoes are recommended. Then on to Lassithi plateau where time has virtually stood still, the local people are mainly farmers and you will see many donkeys at work.

We then make our way to Seli, where once again we have an opportunity to take photos of this unique scenery. As we continue driving, we reach the village of Krassi, which is famous for a 2,000-year-old plane tree and also has a natural spring water source. Heading back we pass through the area of Selinari where you will see vultures, which are now an endangered species.

This is a day full of many surprises and the excitement is second to none, you certainly won’t forget your fun day out on our GREAT ADVENTURE!!

Our day is the perfect way to explore the southern part of Crete from mountains and gorges to beautiful palm beaches.

Our journey starts as we head towards the wilderness and high altitudes where you have a helicopter view of one of the magnificent gorges, where you can see the vultures soaring high on the thermals.

We pass through small, traditional villages full of character and interest and make a brief stop for our guests to take photos of the beautiful scenery before a coffee stop at one of the mountain villages. Back in the vehicles again and through the mountains we come to our next stop. Everyone will be impressed with the village of Spili, famous for its spring water. Over 25 lion head fountains have cold mountain water running all year round, small shops sell handmade souvenirs and traditional hand crafts.

We continue on through dirt tracks, bumpy roads and quaint villages, where time has virtually stood still. After passing through Kerame our guests can see the panoramic view of the southern Cretan coast and the Libyan sea. After getting dusty and dirty a swim at Preveli Beach will be very welcomed?! Preveli is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Its tall palm trees and crystal clear water were even chosen to advertise Bacardi on television, it is the only beach where guests can swim in cold mountain and ocean waters in the same place.

Working up an appetite, walking back from the beach we stop for a traditional Cretan meal with unlimited wine. After lunch, we start the climb back up into the mountains for more dramatic scenery, and more photos as we drive through Kroustaliotico Gorge. As we head back everyone can see the entire city of Rethymno from the top of a mountain which can only be reached by Land Rovers.

This is a day full of many surprises and the excitement is second to none, you certainly won’t forget your fun day out on our GREAT ADVENTURE!!

Your day starts from the moment you meet your drivers where they take you to your first stop at the Potamies Reservoir water dump. Continuing our journey through paths and olive trees, we reach the ruins of the Roman aqueduct of Lyttos. Next stop is the quaint village of Kastamonitsa where we join the locals for a coffee break in the traditional cafeneion. From here the real off-road adventure begins by climbing high into the mountains and following the ancient minaon path that leads us to the cave of Zeus, whilst these days we will pass only shepherds and their goats on our travels. At Zeus’ Cave (where mythology says that Zeus, the father of all the gods was born!) there is a 4€ entrance fee and walking shoes are recommended. Our next point gives you the opportunity to take photographs as if with a helicopters view of the Lassithi Plateau which is from here where we drop down to the plateau for your delicious BBQ lunch with unlimited wine!

After lunch we take you back in time on a visit to the Eco Village where you can see local crafts being made as they were in olden times. Then on to Lassithi plateau itself where time has virtually stood still, the local people are mainly farmers. You will also see many donkeys at work. We then make our way to Seli, where once again we have an opportunity to take amazing photos of this unique scenery. As we continue we reach the village of Krassi our last stop of the day, which is famous for a 2,000-year-old plane tree and also has a natural spring water source.

Our day starts as we drive though the vast orange groves of western Crete heading towards the gorge of Therisso, an amazing and scenic journey. Here we stop for a coffee, thus adopting the Cretan way of life and where you have the chance to see the village which is relative to the revolution of Crete. After coffee, we start climbing towards the White Mountains where we make one more stop at village of Lakoi. There you get the chance to take some photos and where our extreme off road adventure starts.

A small road leads us on the highest point of the day where we get the chance to see Samaria Gorge like being in a helicopter and we will have the chance to observe many endangered species such as vultures and eagles. Climbing down towards the plateau of Omalos and working up an appetite we visit a small traditional taverna which is hanging on the edge of the Samaria Gorge. There we will be welcomed with the famous warm Cretan hospitality by Aristotelis, the owner who will introduce us to Cretan cuisine with plenty wine. Enough free time is offered as well so you explore the area and spot wild Kri-Kri in their natural habitat.

After lunch we drive through the plateau of Omalos where time has virtually stood still. The local people are mainly farmers and you will see many goat’s, sheep and even some donkeys at work. We take a short ride to visit the village of Sebronas where we follow the route of the river, we make a stop in the forest to get fresh water. We make one last stop at the village of Vouves where we get the chance to see the world’s oldest olive tree while you enjoy a coffee or raki just before we reach your hotels.
