"Explore the White Mountains of Crete"
Jeep Safari in Cretan Villages
Combine unique panoramic views and traditional Cretan villages in one of the
most well known area of Crete, ‘Apokoronas”. Learn about the history and the
traditions of the Island visiting the villages, seat with locals and taste our local
treats with the Cretan hospitality that characterize us. Enjoy the unique view of
Chania from above, meet the wildlife of Crete and taste the delicious Cretan
cuisine. Our day starts with a stop in Vrysses Village close to the river side and
under Plateau trees for a mountain tea “malotira” with honey and some local
snacks. After our morning stop we continue around the traditional villages of
Apokoronas through an amazing route with dense vegetation and nice views until
we reach the Village of Fres. Outside the village of Fres, inside a ravine at the really beautiful position Koukou we meet
the temple Virgin Mary (Panagia) of Two Rocks. Once a rock detached from the mountain and rolled down the slope.
Atop of the rock, the church of Panagia was built. Adjacent there is another rock, both forming an impressive scenery.
The church was built in the late 13th century and is one of the most important Byzantine monuments in the region of
Our amazing off-road adventure starts after climbing up the White Mountains and passing through some villages which
are situated in the foot of White mountains. On the way up to the shepherd’s hut “Mitato” you will enjoy the magnificent
panoramic view of northern Crete and, if we are lucky… eagles and wild goats will stop for us to take some photos. A
bumpy rocky road will lead us up to our trip’s highest point 1300 meters in altitude, where you will find out all about the
lifestyle of a shepherd and explore his original "Mitato".
On our way down to the villages we will stop at Fres Village, where we will be welcomed by the owner of a traditional
tavern to introduce us to Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Cretan hospitality. Easy and relax way back
will follow after lunch.
