Route details

Characteristic route to the discovery of the traditional life of our place through the daily activities of the locals as well as the mythological places of Crete such as the cave of Zeus!

Our first stop is the verdant one and one of the representative villages of Crete, Potamies. We will be to a traditional paddock where we will see the milking of animals and local activities such as cheese making.There we will taste traditional products such as fresh cheese that we
just watched its production.

Next stop is the Aposelemis dam, the largest water supply project in Crete. The village of Sfendili is submerged in the waters of the dam with its impressive old houses fading on the surface of the water. Alsoa natural wetland with a variety of birds.

We continue uphill on dirt roads to the gorge of Embassa. Impressive mountains and wildlife nature with unique views. Opportunity to collect some local herbs.

We proceed to the Lassithi Plateau. Optional visit to the cave of Zeus or just a moment of relaxation with the panoramic view of the Plateau. Following an impressively beautiful route we reach an altitude of ≅
1250m in the Limnakaro Plateau and we will meet the third highest mountain of Crete, Diktis (2148m).

Time for delicious authentic food baked in the wood oven in one of the best traditional taverns. Our last stop in the picturesque village of Krasi. Its square is dominated by the Fountains and the imposing
centuries-old plane trees up to 2000 years old and with the oldest plane tree in Crete.

Having enjoyed a route of beautiful images, we return to your hotel full of unforgettable experiences!
