DETAILS OF YOUR TRIP

Tour 1-Explore the White Mountains of Crete

The amazing off-road adventure starts after crossing the valley full of orange trees, avocado’s and vegetables gardens. Climbing up the foot of White Mountains and passing through Cretan villages getting the feeling of mountainous Crete you arrive to the coffee stop to enjoy your morning break. Coffee or mountain tea will be offered for free to our guests enjoying the village life far away from mass tourism.

Continuing our tour following the off road route up to the shepherd’s hut  “Mitato” far away from touristic areas, where only a 4 wheel driver can approach, you will enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of northern Crete and, If we are lucky ... eagles and wild goats will show up and give us a very good reason for some extra photo stops.

A small rocky road will lead us up to our trip’s highest point 1350 meters in altitude in the heart of White Mountains of Crete, where you will find out all about the lifestyle of a shepherd, where the famous Cretan “Graviera” cheese was produced and explore an original Shepherd's hut "Mitato".

On the way back you will enjoy the best panoramic view of Chania from above until we arrive at Therisso village and working up an appetite we visit a small traditional family Cretan tavern where we will be welcomed by the owner, to introduce us to Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Cretan hospitality.

After the lunch break we will follow the road through the amazing gorge of Therisso that will lead us back to Chania.
