Product Description

Taking in the best of our Minoan route we head high in to the mountains as the sun slowly starts to fade to witness stunning sunsets over the Lassithi Plateau and Cretan countryside.

Our journey begins from your hotel making our way through the breathtaking mountains of Crete we visit the Aposelemis basin reservoir and an ancient Roman aqueduct. From here, we will visit the quaint village of Kastamonitsa nestling in the foothills of the Afendi Mountains where you will be introduced to a local product, Raki.

Now brace yourselves for dirt tracks, following the Minoan path going through mountain passes, experiencing spectacular wildlife, unbelievable scenery, mythology, history and enjoy seeing the local nature at its best. For our next stop we will relax with a glass of wine whilst admiring the   birds-eye view of the plateau of Lassithi and the North coast, a great photo opportunity not to be missed.

After building up an appetite we head for a Cretan style evening meal at a local tavern in the village of Krasi, here we will sit beneath the famous 2,000-year-old plane tree listening to the gentle flow of the natural spring water source. Here you will have the opportunity to try a selection of traditional local starters and main courses (vegetarian option available) and enjoy a glass or two of the unlimited wine!

Leaving Krasi, meandering down the mountain roads we will take in the views of the moonlit coastline dotted with the twinkling lights of the towns and villages.

Don’t Forget

  • Walking shoes or ones that are comfortable for you to walk on uneven roads.
  • Camera, for breathtaking pictures.
  • A lightweight jacket (as there can be a chill in the mountains during the evening)
  • Extra money for personal purchases, think of souvenirs, olive oil products, raki etc.
