Cretan Mainland Tour with Exploring Club

Tour Details

Description

After an informative briefing the adventure begins. We start driving till we reach the first stop at a local olive oil mill. We will be guided through the factory to learn about the production and taste the products. We continue driving up the mountains, passing through lush vegetation and wild herbs before we head to a unique plateau with its famous windmills. Our next stop will be at Lasinthos Eco park, where we will have the chance for a little walk in the small alleys of this beautiful village and get some time for refreshment at the local cafe before our day continues. Refreshed, our convoy starts heading North where an exciting off-road route begins. Soon after, a unique panoramic view of the plateau and the north coast of Crete is revealed. We will stop to enjoy the breathtaking view we’ll see some of the Cretan vultures that often are spotted in flocks on these mountains. From that point we descent via off road till we reach the foot of the Mountain and drive through various traditional villages on our way to Kastelli, where on the flowering terrace of a local tavern we will devour a delicious stone-oven cooked lunch including local starters. At noon, refreshed and ready our convoy continues driving via various small villages till we reach the unknown cave of St. Paraskevi (Skoteino cave). We will explore this important Minoan site and you will get informed about its history through the years. From here we return to our starting point from where you will be transferred back to our hotel.
