Description

Enjoy a fine day in the beautiful island of Crete discovering the Cretan traditions in a small group of 6-8 persons in each premium expedition vehicle.

Our day trip safari to the depths of the Cretan culture begins with a visit to the Terra Creta olive mill and then the Karavitakis winery for an informative tour and a mouthwatering wine tasting experience unraveling the secrets of high longevity in Crete! Then we head to the village of Ano Vouves to marvel up close the ancient olive tree which is 3000 years old and learn about the history of olives. Working up an appetite we arrive at a small village tavern in Panethimos, where we will introduce you to the Cretan cuisine with plenty of local food and wine and let you feel the very essence of the renowned Cretan hospitality. On the way up to Mesavlia we cross a gorge with a picturesque creek nestled amongst lush vegetation. There, on our way through the gorge we will have plenty of opportunities to take photos of picturesque chapels, sheep, goats, sprawling vineyards and gorgeous olive groves. On the way back we will pass through the historical Cretan villages of Kakopetros, Dromonero and Voukolies before we reach Chania town.
