Wine and Olives Jeep Safari in Rethymnon area

Discover the long kept secrets of wine and olives and Cretan tastes as you travel through Cretan villages in a semi private jeep safari tour with us!

Our safari day in the secrets of the Cretan tastes and culture begins with a visit to Klados winery in Panormos village. There, we will be welcomed by the owner who will guide us in the winery and unravel the secrets of high longevity in Crete. A mouthwatering wine tasting experience follows.

Continuing our day we follow the north coastline through the traditional villages of Sisses, Aloides in the heart of Cretan mountains admiring the unique view of Psiloritis and Mylopotamos. Thea area will inspire you to take pictures, combining the highest mountain top of Crete with the beautiful valley until we reach the historic Vosakos Monastery, that used to be a refuge for Cretan rebels during civil wars. Afterwards our amazing route continues with panoramic views that will take your breath away! If we are lucky, we will get to marvel up close some wild eagles and goats and take some photos.

Driving through the picturesque villages of Doxaro, Apladiana, Agia nestled amongst lush vegetation, we will have plenty of opportunities to
take photos of  chapels, sheep, goats, sprawling vineyards and gorgeous olive groves.

An asphalt route will lead us to a traditional and modern olive mill in Melidoni village where you will have the chance to be guided in three different olive oil factories (ancient handmade production, by the help of diesel engines and modern production with centrifuge), learn everything about the olives harvesting, olive oil production and taste some local olive oil.
Working up our appetite we arrive at a small village tavern in Melidoni, where we will introduce you to the Cretan cuisine with plenty of Cretan delicacies and let you experience the very essence of the renowned Cretan hospitality.

On the way back we will follow an easy asphalt route through the national road before we reach back into Rethymnon town.

A unique wine and olive escape, an exciting adventure to embrace the renowned Greek hospitality, enjoy the sights and professional and relaxed service!!!
