Hiking Safari to the White Mountains of Crete

Within the mountainous terrain there is a natural cool oasis with an eternal glacier standing for whole centuries in the beautiful cave of Mile. On the northern side of the White Mountains and just 20 kilometers away from the town of Chania there is a mountainous paradise.

Leaving beautiful Kabous behind, we climb to Madaro and from there we enter the dirt road that will lead us to the northern heart of the White Mountains.

The view multiplies every meter we ascend and after 8 kilometers the 4 wheels are replaced by 2 feet…

Vegetation is scarce anymore, rocks are sharp but the positive energy of the place is such that you can only keep climbing to the top.

Before we even sweat we stop for a break at the Volikas refuge, which is the oldest in Crete, and with a view to the Northern side of Chania we enjoy a cup of coffee or mountain tea.

Afterwards, we tie our shoelaces really well as the climb awaits.

A little above and within the mountainous terrain there is a natural cool oasis with an eternal glacier standing for whole centuries in the beautiful cave of Mile, an ideal spot to sip our tea gazing at Chania from above.

Ending our day with a barbeque lunch at Volikas refuge, before we follow the road back to Chania.

The trip is ideal for everyone who´s looking for an experience beyond the ordinary, youth groups, single or couple participants, families with children older than 13 years old, and companies. The trip has a trekking distance 3-4 hours and guided stops, for everyone´s convenience.

In order to arrange lunch with vegetarian alternatives, information is required upon reservation. That also counts for any kind of food allergy, and only when possible to find suitable alternatives.

Above mentioned prices are for group participation. If you wish to book your own Jeep for a private Jeep Safari tour with only your family or perhaps colleagues, we will be happy to give you prices and ideas for a memorable tour. Please don't hesitate to contact us for a unique offer.
