The White Mountains of Crete - Jeep Safari in Cretan Villages

Combine unique panoramic views and traditional Cretan villages in one of the most well known area of Crete, "Apokoronas". Learn about the history and the traditions of the Island visiting the villages, seat with locals and taste our local treats with the Cretan hospitality that characterize us.

Enjoy the unique view of Chania from above, meet the wildlife of Crete and taste the delicious Cretan cuisine.

Our day starts with a stop in Vrysses Village close to the river side and under Plateau trees for a mountain tea "malotira" with honey and some local snacks.

After our morning stop we continue around the traditional villages of Apokoronas through an amazing route with dense vegetation and nice views until we reach the Village of Fres.

Outside the village of Fres, inside a ravine at the really beautiful position Koukou we meet the temple Virgin Mary (Panagia) of Two Rocks. Once a rock detached from the mountain and rolled down the slope. A top of the rock, the church of Panagia was built. Adjacent there is another rock, both forming an impressive scenery.

The church was built in the late 13th century and is one of the most important Byzantine monuments in the region of Apokoronas.

Our amazing off-road adventure starts after climbing up the White Mountains and passing through some villages which are situated in the foot of White mountains.

On the way up to the shepherd’s hut "Mitato" you will enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of northern Crete.

If we are lucky… eagles and wild goats will stop for us to take some photos.

A bumpy rocky road will lead us up to our trip’s highest point 1300 meters in altitude, where you will find out all about the lifestyle of a shepherd and explore his original "Mitato".

On our way down to the villages we will stop at Fres Village, where we will be welcomed by the owner of a traditional tavern to introduce us to Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Cretan hospitality.

Easy and relax way back will follow after lunch.

The trip is ideal for everyone who´s looking for an experience beyond the ordinary, youth groups, single or couple participants, families with older children, and companies.The trip has guided stops every 30-40 minutes, for everyone´s convenience.
