Description

Early in the morning from your hotel, our jeep safari drives you to the dam of Aposelemis, a beautiful landscape with a variety of Cretan wildlife. We will  stop our jeep, and we have time for photos, at the sunken village of Sfentyli, since some house tops are still visible.

Jeep Safari to Lassithi Plateau

Heading south we stop at the village of Avdou. We visit a traditional oil factory. Here we will enjoy a friendly tour and learn all about the olive oil production. We will also taste the local variety of extra virgin olive oil.

Following a beautiful route with wild, beautiful mountain landscapes and breathtaking views, we reach the Plateau of Lassithi. The area is at an altitude of 850 meters above sea level.

At Lassithi Plateau we have our next stop. A traditional Cretan shepherd’s paddock, called “Mitato”. We will meet the shepherd and his family and watch their daily activities, such as sheep milking, and cheese making. We will have the chance to taste their traditional products, such as different kinds of cheese, rusk, local wine and raki.

After a scenic Jeep Safari drive through the small villages, we reach the Cave of Zeus (Dikti cave). You will have plenty of time to visit Zeus cave, and the theme park of Greek mythology. The entrance ticket for the Cave of Zeus is 6€.

The village of Psichro, will be our Crete Jeep safari next stop. Here we will taste local authentic food, baked in the wood oven, in the best tavern of the area.

Then we will follow a beautiful dirt route at an altitude of 1150 meters. The photos we will take from this point will be the best of our vacation.
We descend and reach the traditional village of Kastamonitsa, where we will visit the remains of the ROMAN aqueduct learning about its usefulness for the surrounding areas

Having passed through more than 15 villages, we end our Jeep Safari to Lassithi Plateau and we return back to your hotel.
