About this tour

We pick you up and we meet all together at our installation in -. After a informative briefing & safe driving instructions you will get in your jeep and the adventure begins.

Starting on asphalt to Potamies village where the off road begins, we drive uphill, among rich Cretan flora till we reach our first photo stop with a fantastic view on the Aposelemis Lake and the sunken village of Sfendili. From this point we descent following the lake shore to Avdou village, where we visit an olive oil factory for some tasting as well to be informed how olive oil is made. You will have the chance to walk in the small alleys of this beautiful village and get some time for refreshments at the local Café before our tour continuous.

Our convoy start driving towards the Lassithi Plateau where an exciting off road begins, where a unique panoramic view of the Lassithi Plateau and the north coast of Crete reveals. We will make the second photo stop of the day in order to take the breathtaking view, if we are lucky we will see the Cretan Vultures that is often spotted in flocks in these mountains.

Following our way off road to the foot of the Lassithi Plateau where we drive through various traditional villages on our way to Kastelli village. Here we will have our stone-oven cooked lunch in a traditional taverna.
