Detailed description

Two top-notch Jeep Tours that give you a real insight into what Crete is all about

Option 1: Jeep Safari Tour from Chania to the "White Mountains" in Crete

Get picked up from your accommodation and the Jeep Safari Tour gets started. Drive 1400 metres above sea level up to the “White Mountains” in Crete. Roam through the luscious landscape, stroll past shepherds whilst they do their job and meander alongside olive groves. Breathe in the scent of the wild herbs as you wander around in nature and take in the atmosphere. The jeep safari tour stops off in the charming village of Theriso. It won’t be long before you come to know the role that the village played in the Greek Revolution in 1905. Try out the local cuisine as part of the Chania Jeep Safari Tour.  

The tour then goes on to the impressive Venizelos gorge where you can walk right through it. The off-roading is what sets the tour alight. Ride through the rough until you reach a shepherd’s hut by the name of Mitato. Hear all about how cheese is made straight from the horse’s mouth. Get stunning views across Northern Crete and snap away to your heart’s content. Take a step closer to Greek’s people and its culture.

Option 2: Jeep Safari Tour from Chania with wine and olive oil tasting

Float through the lush landscape which zigzags right through the Mediterranean terrain on the way to the vineyard and oil mill in the pretty little village of Anoskeli. Get the lowdown on everything there is to know about wine and olive oil production. Try out some cold-pressed virgin olive oil on warm bread with a touch of oregano. Nibble on some Cretan snacks and fruit along with some local wines. Feel free to buy some souvenirs on the Chania Jeep Tour and take home some traditional Greek flavours.

Sit tight in a Mitsubishi Pajero and weave through the wilderness in Crete. The mountain range makes sense on a Jeep Tour. Ride alongside pretty pine forests, fabulous fruit plantations and get a feel for the real Crete on the way down to Deliana-Mesavlia gorge. Watch on as the vultures fly from their nests way up high and snap a selfie with a local goat. Go back to Anoskeli and feast on typical grub as part of the tour. Ano Vouves is the last stop on the journey and showcases a 3000-year-old olive tree. Pop along to a museum and learn why it was so tough to make olive oil prior to 1960. Get your fair share of pleasure and culture all in one.

Great sightseeing tour

Wonderful way to discover Crete on 4 wheels! You get to see a big part of the island and at the same time you can enjoy typical delicacies. However, in the middle of summer it is very hot during the hike so I would do the tour next spring.

Tolle Sightseeing-Tour

Wunderschöne Möglichkeit Kreta auf 4 Rädern zu entdecken! Man bekommt einen großen Teil der Insel zu sehen und gleichzeitig kommt man in den Genuss von typischen Köstlichkeiten. Im Hochsommer ist es jedoch während der Wanderung sehr heiß deswegen würde ich die Tour das nächste Mal im Frühling machen.
