Detailed description

From Chania a Jeep Tour into the White Mountains: Cultural, culinary and aesthetic impressions

One of the most beautiful natural sights on Crete are the White Mountains, also known as Lefka Ori. A jeep safari from Chania will take you to the heart of these picturesque mountains. From 8 o'clock the pick-ups begin at various locations, before the tour really starts from 9 o'clock in the morning. In the all-terrain Premium 4x4 Jeeps the all-day, approx. 7-8 hour drive begins at the foot of the mountains into the first small Greek villages. During the Jeep Tour into the White Mountains from Chania there are regular stops for pictures, as a break or at special places. Among other things you stop in the morning in a Cretan village to enjoy a coffee or the local mountain tea. Shortly afterwards you will start an off-road adventure through Lefka Ori to drive up to the shepherd's hut Mitato via various paths that are difficult to access and thus away from mass tourism. You will pass valleys with orange trees, avocados and vegetable gardens. You may also be lucky enough to see some mountain eagles or one of the rare Cretan mountain goats in the wild.

Arrived with the Jeep Tour from Chania in the white mountains you learn on the shepherd's hut Mitato in 1350 meters height some about the traditional sheep breeding and the production of the Graviera cheese. With many beautiful impressions and new knowledge you stop again in Therisso. In a typical local Cretan tavern you will have an excellent lunch consisting of wine and warm local delicacies. Back to Chania and your starting point, the Jeep Tour from Chania to Lefka Ori crosses the gorge of Therisso, which once again provides unforgettable landscape panoramas.

The morning cafe convinced me: D

I´m not a morning person but this tour is really worth it. You should have seen the white mountains. It was really fun.

Der morgendliche Cafe hatte ich überzeugt :D
