Jeep safari to the Lassithi Plateau
You are the whole day, with your Eye Travel guide, inside the countryside of Crete.
We will see many small villages, a lot of nature and of course the Lassithi Plateau.
On our way to the Lassithi Plateau we stop at a very authentic mountain village for a coffee.
Off road we make our climb to the Lassithi plateau with breathtaking, picturesque view to a 900m level.
On Lassithi we visit a monastery with several beautiful Greek Orthodox churches, each with its own story.
We can watch how an artist is painting and restoring frescoes and icons.
In a traditional family taverna with a typical windmill, we will enjoy a Cretan lunch from the oven.
Our lunch includes many local products that come from the village itself. After lunch we drive through the beautiful landscape of Lassithi.
Who isn't interested in the main production of Crete? Olive oil! So we visit an olive oil factory with a garden full local herbs.
We end this interesting day with a swim in the refreshing sea. More we can not tell you, just do it.
This tour is heading to the South coast of Crete.
The chance to see the other side of Crete!
Directly when we leave Chersonissos we drive through the green nature of the Aposelemis area.
After some off-road driving along small villages and through overwhelming green nature,
we reach a beautiful very old and small village. Time for coffee!
This village has an astonishing beautiful view over a “green wall” of trees and plants.
We pass a Roman Aqueduct, this is a huge stone wall, at some places even 10 meters high.
Over a bridge from the Venetian period.
The touch of the warm South winds will welcome us when we reach the Libyan sea.
We have lunch in a taverna near the beach.
Swimming in the blue waters.
We continue our trip along the beaches of the Lybian Sea,
until we turn onto mountain tracks heading north again.
