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. Our next stop is Zeus’s cave where mythology says that Zeus, the father of all the gods was born, there is a 6 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!!
