Our day is the perfect way to explore the central part of Crete from mountains to gorges to a beautifulbeach.
Our journey starts as we make our way to Mount Giouktas with breathtaking views of the blue infinity of the Aegean Sea. God Zeus knew what he was doing by choosing Mount Giouktas as his final resting place. From here we take the road through extensive vineyards where the Minoans built a wine press which is
the oldest one in the world, our next stop is a mountain village where we join the locals for a coffee. We continue through dirt tracks, bumpy roads over the olive tree dotted hills to our next stop the top of Tripiti Gorge where you have a magnificent view over the Gorge with its different layers of rocks, Cretan
wild herbs, and the Libyan Sea. Driving down towards one of the most beautiful and pictures Gorges of Crete we stop to give you the possibility to walk thru the Gorge (300m) to the narrows place where you find the little church of Panagia which is built into the rocks.
Building up an appetite, we drive down to Tripiti beach where we have a Lunch next to the beach with unlimited wine and water. Now you can enjoy some free time for a refreshing swim in the Libyan Sea (1hour) where you have crystal clear blue water. Then we head back towards the South Coast passing
through some small traditional villages full of character and interest until we stop for some refreshment and to try our local drink, Raki.
This is a day full of many surprises and the excitement is second to none, you certainly won’t forget your fun day out with SafariClub!!!
