Let’s have a hiking adventurous tour and enjoy “Lefka Ori” in their pure version.Expert drivers will take you through olive, orange and lemon groves.
The route is beautiful and during that time we will give you a chance for a short stop to rest a bit and enjoy scenery.

Join us, the Jeep Safari & Hiking adventurous tour begins!

Starting point: Following the path to Volikas shelter we are already close to high peaks. We can feel the mountains energy and the wild nature on those high mountain peaks where there aren’t any trees. The landscape is compared to that of the moon. A few minutes hiking Southeast from Volikas Refuge we will taste fresh cold water. A real gift from nature!
Volikas Refuge:It is the oldest one shelter on “Lefka Ori”, built in 1958. From that point the view of the Cretan Sea is truly fantastic. During our hiking route, smell of herbs is very intense, sheep and goats are a part of the scenery too.
Meeting Point:One and a half hour hiking away from Volikas Refuge - at the end of the hiking route - we will have the chance to visit a “Shepherd’s hut” and get some information about its use.
Therisso: Lunch time! Taste Greek cuisine, wine and hospitality in a picturesque village, a turning point in the local history. The Cretan revolution started right here, in 1905!
Venizelos Gorge: The perfect route before our return to urban landscape. It is an amazing gorge .Admire scenery and take plenty of photos of wild nature.
