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 prossecco, fresh fruit salad whilst admiring the sunset, 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 a local village. 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 the village, 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.
