This is a call to become part of the primitive and challenging life Cretan shepherds have on “Lefka Ori” mountain.

Join us, the Jeep Safari adventure begins!

Expert drivers will take you through olive, orange, lemon and avocado groves. A few minutes later the urban landscape is far away!
Venizelos Gorge: Our first stop, is in that amazing gorge. Admire and take plenty of photos of wild landscape nature.
Therisso: A picturesque village, a turning point in the local history. The Cretan revolution started right here, in 1905!
Shepherd’s Hut: Things are getting more and more adventurous in our Jeep Safari tour. An off road route is a challenge worth’s living. Half an hour later we reach the shepherd’s hut the traditional “Mitato”, where shepherds live and produce cheese following hundred years old techniques.
Therisso: Lunch time! Taste Greek cuisine, wine and hospitality.
Vatolakos: In our last stop we visit a nice small museum, which was an olive mill in the 19th century. Driving through olive, orange and lemon groves again we will be back to the starting point.
During the guided safari tour you will learn about life in Cretan villages, olives pick, olive oil production, cheese & honey production, distillation of "raki" - "tsikoudia", and Cretan cuisine, culture, history and tradition. You will learn also about Cretan revolution which started in 1905 at Therisso village from Eleftherios Venizelos.
