Full description
Discover Crete with a drive through the plateaus. Follow the path of your choice and admire the rugged nature. Begin in the idyllic little town of Kastamonitsa at the foothills of the Afentis Mountains and enjoy a typical Cretan breakfast. Drive through the unbelievably beautiful landscape, along rural roads and mountain passes and discover the diversity of animal life. At the next stop, enjoy a one-of-a-kind view of the Lassithi Plateau and the northern coast of Crete. Visit the Psychro Cave, the birthplace of Zeus, father of the gods.  Then enjoy a selection of local and regional specialties in a local tavern. Discover the Lassithi Plateau, where time seems to stand still. The local people are mostly farmers and still use donkeys in their daily lives. Visit the little town of Krasi, known for its millennia-old sycamore trees and natural springs. On your way back, pass olive groves and admire the spectacular coast of Crete with its deep blue waters beyond.
