From Chania | Jeep Safari to the White Mountains of Crete


Would you like to visit an original Cretan shepherd’s hut and learn about the traditions of Crete combined with absolutely stunning panoramic views of the White mountains ? If your answer is yes then hop on our off road vehicle accompanied by our multilingual drives and start your journey to the inland of Crete.

Enjoy  unique views of Chania from an altitude of 1350m and discover the wildlife of Crete with the help of our premium vehicles. Our amazing off-road adventure begins by crossing a valley full of orange and avocado trees. We will be following the foothills of the White Mountains where we make a coffee stop at Deres to enjoy our morning break. As we drive through the Cretan villages of Vatolakos, Alikianos, Fournes, Meskla, Zourva and Therisso we will  follow an off road route up to the shepherd’s hut called “Mitato” far away from touristic areas. 

As we are enjoying the panoramic view, if lucky  we will marvel some wild eagles and goats from up close giving us a good reason to stop and capture the moment. A small rocky road will lead us up to our trip’s highest point of 1350 meters altitude in the heart of the White Mountains of Crete, where you will find out all about the lifestyle of a shepherd. Time to explore the shepherd’s hut.

Next stop will be at Therisso village for a short walk in the historic village and a visit in a small Cretan family tavern for our lunch. Our tour comes to its end by driving you back to your morning pick up place.
