Crete: Land Rover Safari on Minoan Route
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8 hours
Explore Crete by Land Rover on a full-day adventure along the Minoan Path, and experience a blend of ancient myths, spectacular landscapes, and a barbecue lunch on the Lassithi Plateau. Following a pick-up from your hotel, drive through spectacular mountains on route to the Aposelemis Basin Reservoir, and see an ancient aqueduct of the Roman Empire. Continue to the village of Kastamonitsa in the foothills of the Afendi Mountains. Stop for a Cretan-style breakfast and raki tasting. Next, brace yourself for the dirt tracks of the Minoan Path. Drive through a stunning mountain landscape to see wildlife and unbelievable scenery. Learn the myths and legends of Crete on the way to a shepherds' mitato (mountain shelter). Feed the animals as you watch the shepherds produce cheese according to traditional methods. Taste some of the fresh, rich cheese. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view ...
The trip was great! Only reason the review is 4 stars and not 5, is because the rest of the group was very indifferent about all the activities and that affected everyone's mood.

The trip was amazing. In contrast to the North beach part of the Creta the trip takes you to the mountains, full of green, small villages and interesting places. Our guide - Leonidas, was perfect. He told us many interesting information about the Creta, local people, mythology and also herb. I would higly recommend this trip. Just one point. The trip starts about 8 AM and the lunch is about 2 PM. Take some snacks and water.
Great way to get to know Crete in a different way. Leonidas was a super guide!
Simply great from start to finish THANK YOU Marius for the great day.
