Experience description

Start your tour with pick up in an air-conditioned Land Rover from your accommodations at 10 AM and head into the Dikti Mountain Range. You’ll pass through several traditional and very picturesque mountain villages.
There will be plenty of opportunities to stop for photos or to have a coffee at a real taverna.

At the Lassithi Plateau, you might see eagles and vultures, as both nest around this area. Next, you’ll reach the base of Mount Spathi. The Psychro Cave, the birth place of the Greek god Zeus, is located on the north face of Spathi.
You’ll walk 15 minutes up the steep hill to the entrance of the cave and from there follow the path down into the spectacular cave.

Next, enjoy a traditional Cretan meze lunch with local wine. After lunch, you’ll continue around the plateau and then descend taking in views of the north coast and the impressive Aposelemis Dam.
You will then visit a 2400-year-old plane tree, the oldest on the island, as well as the Selinari Monastery.
