Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Gazi and head straight off-road along the river bed to the picturesque village of Pendamodi. Here, enjoy a quick stop to see the picturesque church and natural springs. Journey through the vineyards of the largest wine producing area on the island to the village of Krousonas and sample some local produce such as olive oil and raki. Enjoy some free time here to get a coffee and take in the stunning views. Continue towards Livadi Plateau with views of the many apple orchards in the area and meet some friendly local goats. Next, stop at the Nida Plateau, the highest point of the day, and enjoy spectacular views of Crete's highest snowcapped mountain ‘Psiloritis’. Listen to tales of the resistance and Crete’s chequered history, visit a very unusual monument and a traditional Shepherds ‘mitato’, and experience the traditional Cretian method of cheese making. Next, visit the Ideon Andron cave, where mythology states that Zeus took refuge and escaped death. Head to the famous village of Anogeia for a delicious BBQ lunch with unlimited wine (vegetarian option available) with views of the highest plateau on the island. Once refreshed, go for a short walk to the center of Anogeia (optional). Finally, slowly head back off-road to the home of El Greco, the village of Fodele, and take some time to relax before beginning your journey back to the hotel.

    Die Safari-Tour war sehr schön und spannend! Insbesonders war es echt angenehm, mit Georgios unterwegs zu sein, welcher perfekt Deutsch sprach und mit unserer westlichen Kultur sehr vertraut ist. Daher konnte er die beiden Länder miteinander vergleichen und uns auf diese Weise interessante Erkenntnisse weitergeben. Die Reise war vielseitig, ausgewogen, gut organisiert und auch die Essenszeiten gut verteilt. Wir hatten eine sehr angenehme, überschaubare Gruppe, die sich im Laufe des Tages gut fand und verstand. Die Safari-Tour ist sehr empfehlenswert! Nochmals vielen Dank, Georgios, für deine kompetente, angenehme Führung!
