"Explore the White Mountains of Crete”

Jeep Safari in Cretan Traditions


Combine a unique wine tasting, in one of the most famous vineyards of

Crete, with the history and the traditions of the Island and find out all about

the lifestyle of a Cretan shepherd by exploring an original shepherd’s hut.

Enjoy the unique view of Chania from above and meet the wildlife of Crete

by the help of our Land Rovers, driven by expert English speaking guides.

Arriving at the Vineyard, you will learn everything there is to know about the

production of Cretan wines before proceeding to the winery and the

underground cellars. The well-trained staff will show us around the vineyards

and winery. You will enjoy walking around while you soak up the local flavor

and culture of the wines.

Our amazing off-road adventure starts after climbing up the White Mountains and passing through Meskla village which

is situated under plane trees, beside the river Keritis. On the way up to the shepherd’s “Mitato” you will enjoy the

magnificent panoramic view of northern Crete and, If we are lucky ... eagles and wild goats will show up and give us a

very good reason for some extra photo stops.

Arriving at Therisso and working up an appetite we visit a small traditional tavern where we will be welcomed by the

owner, to introduce us to Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Cretan hospitality. A small rocky road will

lead us up to our trip’s highest point 1350 meters in altitude, where you will find out all about the lifestyle of a shepherd

and explore his original Shepherd's hut "Mitato".

There will be free time for taking photos and exploring the area. On our way back we will pass through the amazing

gorge of Therisso that will lead us to the city of Chania.
