White Mountains Jeep Safari

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 a 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.

Awesome Tour

We took this tour in September, 2019. Full 7 hours of touring the White Mountains, to include a sheep herder and his home. Very descriptive tour, lots of information given about the history of the island. Lunch was included and was wonderful.

Wonderful Excursion!

We did this excursion in July 2019. We had such a wonderful time on this excursion and the views are so breathtakingly beautiful. Antonio was our driver and he was a wonderful driver and narrator on the trip. We traveled in the group and all the drivers were wonderful. We really enjoyed their humor, especially Thanassi! I am looking forward to going back to Crete and doing this excursion again!!

Best experience of the vacation!

Absolutely LOVED this excursion - I highly recommend! We were fortunate enough to get the head guide, who told us all about the history and values of Crete. Our first stop was a local cafe where they served coffee, tea with thyme honey (highly recommended), and fresh squeezed orange juice (highly recommended). After our short snack, we started winding up the mountainside. If you get car sick easily - this is not for the faint of heart. Portions of the trip were on paved surfaces, and other were off road. This is the only company that is allowed to access a certain area by vehicle; only the local shepherds are allowed to travel on those unpaved roads. You will wind up to about 4450 ft in altitude to the shepherd's house where they explain his daily routine. You will pass plenty of wildlife along the way. To finish the tour, we stopped and ate a fantastic home cooked meal at the shepherd's restaurant - homemade cheese, fresh lamb, Raki, and more! Hands down, the best part of my vacation!

This trip is pretty good. It would be much more impressive if the shepherd was on site to show us how to milk the sheep or make the cheese.

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
