Explore Crete by
Land Rover on a full-day adventure along the Minoan Path, and experience a
blend of ancient myths, spectacular landscapes, and a barbecue lunch on the
Lassithi Plateau. 

Following a
pick-up from your hotel, drive through spectacular mountains on route to the
Aposelemis Basin Reservoir, and see an ancient aqueduct of the Roman Empire.
Continue to the village of Kastamonitsa in the foothills of the Afendi
Mountains. Stop for a Cretan-style breakfast and raki tasting, a
local alcoholic beverage. 

Next, brace
yourself for the dirt tracks of the Minoan Path. Drive through a stunning
mountain landscape to see wildlife and unbelievable scenery. Learn the myths
and legends of Crete on the way to a shepherds’ mitato (mountain
shelter). Feed the animals as you watch the shepherds produce cheese according
to traditional methods. Taste some of the fresh, rich flavoured cheese. Enjoy a
bird’s-eye view of the Lassithi Plateau and north coast. Continue to Dikteon
Cave to marvel at the birthplace of Zeus. Work up an appetite before your lunch
at a local taverna. Try a selection of traditional dishes (vegetarian option
available) and a glass or two of wine. Then, go to Lassinthos Eco Park to
admire traditional handicrafts. Back on the Lassithi Plateau, experience a wilderness
and farming land where time has stood still. See donkeys put to work to help
farm the land. Then, go to Seli to take photos of the unique scenery. Drive to
the village of Krassi, famous for its 2,000-year-old tree and natural spring
water source. Continue down the mountain roads, passing ancient olive groves
before you reach the spectacular coastline and deep blue sea.
