Your day starts from the moment you meet your drivers where they take you direct to your first stop at the Aposelimi dam. Where we get to see the sunken village of Sfendili

Continuing our journey off road through olive trees, as we take in the smells and sounds of the mountain track were, we reach the ruins of the
Roman aqueduct of Lyttos.

Next stop is the quaint village of Kastamonitsa where we join the locals for Raki and Olive oil tasting and get chance to walk through the smalls streets and alleyways of this beautiful village.

From here the real off-road adventure begins by climbing high into the mountains where you get chance to pick wild herbs on the mountain side and look out at the breathtaking views as we take the ancient Minoan path that leads us to a local shepherd where you have the chance to feed the goats and try some of the home-made cheese.  From here we make our way to a magnificent viewpoint where we can see. the Minoan path and the first siting of the Lassithi Plateau before we climb back over the mountains to catch a glimpse at the fantastic views of the Eastern coastline and head back to the hotel.
