All about the Jeep Safari to the White Mountains.

Jeep Safari to the White Mountains

Combine a unique guided Jeep tour in the White Mountains of Crete with panoramic views, traditional Cretan villages, hospitality and flavours! Learn  the history and  the traditions of the Island and find out all about the lifestyle of a Cretan shepherd by exploring an original shepherd’s hut.

Enjoy the unique view of Chania from above 1350m and meet the wildlife of Crete with our 4×4 Jeeps, driven by knowlegeale English speaking escorts.
Our amazing off-road adventure starts crossing a valley full of orange trees, avocado’s and vegetable gardens. Climbing up the foot of the White Mountains and passing through Cretan villages, we surely get the feeling of mountainous Crete before we have our first stop for a coffee. Coffee or mountain tea will be offered for free to our guests enjoying the village life far away from mass tourism. We continue our tour following the off road route up to the shepherd’s hut “Mitato”, far away from touristic areas, where only a 4 wheel driver can approach.

Magnificent panoramic views of northern Crete will accompany us and if we get lucky eagles and wild goats will show up and give us a very good reason for some extra photo stops.
A small rocky road will lead us up to our trip’s highest point, 1350 meters in altitude, in the heart of the White Mountains of Crete, where you will find out all about the lifestyle of a shepherd, where the famous Cretan “Graviera” cheese is produced and we explore an original Shepherd’s hut “Mitato”.

Next stop is to a small traditional family-run tavern in Therissos village where we will be welcomed by the owner and introduced  to Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and of course warm Cretan hospitality.
Return to Chania follows through the amazing Therissos gorge.
