Full description
Discover Crete and cross the Katharo Plateau. Follow the enchanted path through a huge woodland area and admire the wild nature.

Begin with a fantastic view of Mirabello Bay. Then travel through the incredibly beautiful landscape alongside the largest forest on the island and up to a height of 1,500 meters. At the next stop, enjoy a unique view of the Lassithi Plateau and the northern coast of Crete.

Discover the Lassithi Plateau, where time seems to stand still. The local society remains largely agrarian, using donkeys in their everyday lives and making regional products according to ancient traditions. Enjoy a delicious barbecue and local wine, then visit the birthplace of Zeus, the father of the gods.

Head to the little town of Krasi, known for its 2,000-year-old sycamores and natural springs. Stop in Selinari on the way back and see the vultures increasingly threatened by extinction.
