Very nice experience of a safari in the heart of the crest mountains. Discover animals in freedom, watch for the passage of vultures, venture on steep paths on the mountainside, stay blocked in front of majestic landscapes, taste regional specialties, and meet available and generous inhabitants. A day in perfect harmony with nature and men. Even if you are prone to dizziness, you will not regret.

Excellent experience, knowledgeable and friendly guides!

This experience was packed full of interesting activities and adventures! Our guide, Kostas, was very friendly and seemed very passionate about the job. We first went to a lake and a monastery where we learned about early food production, and had an amazing breakfast of Raki, bread and olive oil and rusks with honey. We then started to go up into the mountains which was an amazing experience. The food at the taverna at lunch was delicious and it was great to have some time to be on the beach. We visited many different paces and learnt so much about the fascinating ancient history of crete. Thank you so much for a brilliant day!
