Tour Details

Explore Crete like never before on this exemplary Chania shore excursion. Breathtaking panoramic views are combined with visits to traditional Cretan villages. Meet locals and sample native treats in the comfort of Cretan hospitality. Enjoy spectacular views of Chania from memorable vantage points. This Jeep Safari Chania tour is ideal for nature lovers and first-time Greece explorers.

Begin your Chania shore excursion with a stop in Vrysses Village, near the riverside, under gorgeous Plateau trees. The beautiful scenery is perfect accompaniment for mountain tea, "malotira," with honey and local snacks. Continue to the traditional villages of Apokoronas through a breathtaking route decorated with dense vegetation and spectacular views.

Reach a serene ravine, where you'll meet the temple Virgin Mary (Panagia) of Two Rocks. Long ago, this rock detached from the mountain, rolled down the slope, and eventually had the church of Panagia built atop its surface. There is another rock adjacent to this one, together forming an impressive view.

Your off-road adventure starts after climbing the White Mountains and passing through local villages. Enjoy magnificent panoramic views on your way up to the shepherd's hut, Mitato. If your group is lucky, you'll spot eagles and wild goats. A bumpy, rocky road leads you to the trip's highest point, 1,300 meters in altitude, where you'll learn about the shepherd's lifestyle and Mitato village. On your way down from the villages, stop at Fres Village, where the owner of a traditional tavern welcomes you with delicious Cretan cuisine.

Book this Chania shore excursion today for a memorable day exploring local culture and fascinating vistas.

if you want an adventure and want to see the most beautiful view ever, you must go on this safari. The ride itself was great, what you expect from 4 wheeling, but the view of that view. The driver was great all in all well worth the ride and excursion

The drive up to the mountains was the most assume trip and view I have ever seen. The guides were the best. I recommend this tour to any one that enjoys an adventure and a very bumpy ride in a jeep

Reviewer: lisa
This excursion was by far the best of the trip. Even though it was raining and cool, we got to see a lot. Our guide was awesome! He knew a lot and allowed us time to stop and get pics. We actually got to meet the shepherd. The lunch was great. It was nice to see the local culture and cuisine. Highly recommend.
