Activity Description

Psiloritis is the mountain that according to mythology, Zeus was raised by the Kourites and the nymph Amalthea. Today, Psiloritis has been a UNESCO-recognized Geopark since 2001. Within its boundaries, you can see faults, fossils, caves, gorges, and plateaus, which host many endemic species of the island and have shaped the culture of the locals. 

Our day starts in Heraklion. After getting to know your guide and a short presentation of the excursion, you will head to the Livadi plateau. The mountainous, provincial road climbs the eastern slopes of Psiloritis and offers incredible views of Heraklion and the Cretan Sea. Soon we reach Krousonas and through a dirt road, which runs parallel to the homonymous gorge, to the plateau. The place is beautiful with thousands of pear and apple trees scattered all over. If you visit them in the spring, you will see them blooming. The dirt road will lead us to the location "Vromonero", where we can enjoy a picnic, with Cretan products, under the shade of the oak trees.

After enjoying the picnic, we continue our off-road route to the plateau of Nida, where we will visit Idaion Andron, the cave where Zeus was raised. On the way back, we will stop at Ancient Zominthos, which was only discovered in 1982, but is one of the most important archeological discoveries in Crete!

From there, we will head to Anogia for a traditional meal.

The return to Heraklion will be through the provincial road Heraklion - Anogia.
