Full description

Explore the Cretan mountains outside of Heraklion from the seat of a Land Rover during a guided day tour. Witness a stunning sunset over the Lassithi Plateau before stopping off for a local-style BBQ dinner with wine.

Begin your journey with hotel pickup and make your way through the magnificent mountains of Crete. Visit the Aposelemis Dam and an ancient Roman aqueduct as your guide shares interesting insight.

Next, stop off in the picturesque village of Kastamonitsa, nestled in the foothills of the Afendi Mountains. Enjoy the chance to sample local products such as olive oil and raki, a distilled alcoholic drink made with grapes and anise.

Back in the vehicle, brace yourself as you venture down dirt tracks and follow the Minoan path through mountain passes. Catch spectacular views of wildlife and unbelievable scenery, learning about mythology and history along the way.

Take a break to relax over a glass of prosecco and fresh fruit salad while admiring the sunset. Be sure to take plenty of photos to share of the amazing backdrop.

After building up an appetite, head to a local tavern for a delicious Cretan-style meal that will include appetizers and main courses as well as vegetarian options. Wash down the food with unlimited wine served with dinner.

Make your way back down the mountain roads as you head toward your hotel, marveling at the views of the moonlit coastline and illuminated towns along the way.

    Great great great experience! We did the sunset tour with Nikos. Attentive and nice driver who gave us great information about Cretans, life here and the island. Unfortunately, we were unlucky and because of the thick fog we couldn't see the actual view from the mountain. But the drivers tried very hard and we drove to the Lasithi plain at high speed, from which we could at least see something. The food in the tavern was very simple and original, but incredibly tasty. I would do it again!

    It was a great tour. Probably the most beautiful sunset, the best olive oil and the nicest and most informative guide Thomas :) It was a pity, however, that we didn't drive the Land Rover, but with a minibus. I would have expected people to at least ask if we were okay with that.

    Everything was great. Christos told us all sorts of things and showed special places
