Full description

Explore the Cretan mountains outside of Heraklion from the seat of a Land Rover during a guided day tour. Witness a stunning sunset over the Lassithi Plateau before stopping off for a local-style BBQ dinner with wine.

Begin your journey with hotel pickup and make your way through the magnificent mountains of Crete. Visit the Aposelemis Dam and an ancient Roman aqueduct as your guide shares interesting insight.

Next, stop off in the picturesque village of Kastamonitsa, nestled in the foothills of the Afendi Mountains. Enjoy the chance to sample local products such as olive oil and raki, a distilled alcoholic drink made with grapes and anise.

Back in the vehicle, brace yourself as you venture down dirt tracks and follow the Minoan path through mountain passes. Catch spectacular views of wildlife and unbelievable scenery, learning about mythology and history along the way.

Take a break to relax over a glass of prosecco and fresh fruit salad while admiring the sunset. Be sure to take plenty of photos to share of the amazing backdrop.

After building up an appetite, head to a local tavern for a delicious Cretan-style meal that will include appetizers and main courses as well as vegetarian options. Wash down the food with unlimited wine served with dinner.

Make your way back down the mountain roads as you head toward your hotel, marveling at the views of the moonlit coastline and illuminated towns along the way.

    Great way to see the mountains of Crete. Be prepared for actual off roading and bumpy roads though. But the sunset views up top are breathtaking. Cute little stop at a village and Greta dinner at a local tavern afterwards. Staff was amazing, friendly and knowledgeable about Crete history. Would definitely do again!

    What a great night! Our guide was able to tell a lot, but perhaps even more important: to create a good atmosphere in the group. We all had such a great laugh. During the drive up for sunset we made a few nice stops. When you get to the top, the view is breathtaking. After the sunset you go to a restaurant for a bbq, enough different dishes and it tasted delicious. An evening you will never forget!

    We were picked up from the hotel on time. Our driver's name was Kosta, best driver ever! We drove up the mountains in a minivan. On the way we made a small stop in a small village where we got a small snack and raki. We bought our oil there as a souvenir. We continued up into the mountains where we fed and saw eagles. Enjoy the sunset with champagne, a dream. The sunset in the mountains is just wonderful. We continued down into the valley, where we ate, drank and celebrated very well. We would book the tour again.
