Land Rover Safari on Lassithi Route
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8 hours
This Land Rover excursion is the perfect way to explore the central part of Crete, visiting 2 different plateaus and learning about mythology as well as local life. We head out in the Land Rover to the plateau of Katharo, passing through the largest forest on Crete. The roads here are basically non-existent and the mountains reach heights of 1,500 meters. You’ll have a refreshment stop at a kafenion (coffee shop) somewhere in the wilderness. The tour continues on along dirt tracks, through valleys, and across rivers, and the journey starts to get exciting! At the next stop you’ll have the opportunity to take photos from a spectacular viewpoint above the Lassithi Plateau. You’ll then head to the plateau to enjoy your BBQ lunch, along with unlimited wine. After lunch you’ll travel back in time as you visit the Eco Village, where you can see local crafts being made by traditional methods...
Unsere Tour mit dem Guide Thomas brachte eine willkommene Abwechslung zu den Strandtagen. Der Tag war sehr abwechslungsreich gestaltet, das Landesinnere bringt völlig neue Eindrücke, man gewinnt einen guten Eindruck vom Leben in den Bergdörfern, der durch sehr viel Informationen zu Fauna Flora, Geschichte, Alltagsleben durch Thomas noch vertieft wurde. Die Tourführung war sehr umsichtig, die kleine Gruppengröße ideal. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis passt. Das Mittagessen in der Taverne bei der Zeushöhle war von sehr guter Qualität und die off-road Passagen im Landrover machten viel Spaß und brachte uns in Gegenden, die mit dem Mietauto nicht zu erreichen sind. Der Tour kann auf jeden Fall empfohlen werden.

Our guide Leonidas was super nice and entertained us well throughout the tour. Every now and then he stopped briefly to pick herbs from the roadside and we could then guess what it was. He made the tour interesting with anecdotes and funny stories. Always gave us enough time to explore the places we visited and took care of everything.
Excellent Activity, I highly recommend, very pleasant traditional meal, magnificent landscapes, the guide explains very well the history of the lassithi plateau and the cave of Zeus, and as a bonus if you like goats you will be delighted to stop in a sheepfold in the middle of the mountains.
The tour shows a different side of Crete, more local and with spectacular views from the mountain tops. The Lassithi plateau is impressive. Our driver and guide was very knowledgable and helpful. We bought some local products and enjoyed goats on trees, good food and clear air.
we had Jeff as our tour guide and we had a wonderful day off roading up the mountains on the Lassithi Route. We got to feed the mountain goats and had a delicious meal along the way. If you are visiting Crete be sure to sign up for this tour- you will not be disappointed!!!
very beautiful day, our guide Yannis was very interesting, and to see fascinating not stingy with anecdote and explanations on Crete and its inhabitants Just a point, it is planned in your "leaflet" the visit of the cave of ZEUS, on the field is not planned
