We walk along the old path - which was used up to the mid 20th century to connect the villages of Askyfou and Asfentou. We enjoy the spectacular view of "Gavdos" island which is the southernmost tip of Europe.

Join us, the Jeep Safari & Hiking adventure begins!

Goni: It is the easternmost neighborhood of Askifou village built amid three hills. That’s where the path starts. The route is beautiful, typical of the nature of Sfakia area. Lambs and goats roam across the path at all times. Cedars, asfendos trees and low bush are all over the area. The village Asfendou got its name from the trees in the area.
Asfendou: This is a tiny village where our jeeps will pick you up. After a short rest we drive south to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Libyan sea (South Cretan Sea) and the island of "Gavdos".
Kallikratis - Asi Gonia villages: Now we drive Northwards to pass through these historical villages which are built in the mountainous terrain. Their inhabitants are mainly stock breeders.
Argiroupoli village: Lunch in the shade of plane trees. This beautiful locality has lots of water springs.
Return trip: On our way back to Chania we drive westwards and go through the small natural lake of "Kournas", which is unique in Crete.
