Activity Description

Discover the secrets of wine, olives and Cretan tastes in a premium semi private safari tour introducing you to the daily Cretan life style and some of its most valuable treasures. This tour will take you though many villages and beautiful landscapes.

Our day trip safari to the depths of the Cretan culture begins after we pick you up from your hotel or accommodation and heading towards an olive mill in the village of Kolymbary for an informative tour and olive oil tasting. Continuing our day tour we visit Karavitakis winery for a mouthwatering wine tasting experience accompanied by interesting information, for example the secrets of high longevity in Crete! Then we head to the village of Ano Vouves to marvel up close the ancient olive tree which is 3000 years old and learn about the history of olives.

 

Our adventure off-road route starts heading towards Sebronas village and as we cross a gorge with a picturesque creek nestled amongst lush vegetation and panoramic views. There, on our way through the gorge we will have plenty of opportunities to take photos of picturesque chapels, sheep, goats, bees, sprawling vineyards and gorgeous olive groves.

 

After working up an appetite we arrive at a small village tavern in Nea Roumata, where we will introduce you to the Cretan cuisine with plenty of local platters and let you feel the very essence of the renowned Cretan hospitality. On the way back we will follow an easy asphalt route through orange and lemon trees before reaching back to our hotels.
