Jeep safari Crete Greece

Jeep safari Crete Greece: Driving off-road on Crete gives you the chance to explore the real Crete. The countryside of Crete has countless roads that go through the mountains from village to village. Only these are dirt roads, which are not registered on any road map. The jeep safari takes you on these roads and you will see that the real Crete is not comparable to the tourist areas.

The purpose of our jeep safari is to show you how beautiful nature and culture in the mountains of Crete is. It will take you to places that are not described in tourist guides. We always try to avoid touristic sites or visit those in a different way. For example, we do drive with a jeep safari to Lassithi, the famous plateau on Crete. But also, the Lassithi Plateau can be seen from a different part of the Dikti mountains, without you being overwhelmed by many tourists. 

The Dikti mountains surrounding the Lassithi plateau are ideal for jeep safari. There are more than enough dirt roads. Besides the local farmers, not many people know to find these roads. Lassithi is a mountain plateau at an altitude of around 840 meters and is surrounded by mountains with peaks going up to 2100 metres. In winter there is snow on these mountains and even in spring you often see some parts that still have some snow. Beautiful to see whilst you are in an open jeep wearing your summer clothes.

Because of the snow on the mountains in winter, Lassithi gets of a lot of melting water, which is coming down to the plateau in spring and early summer. The Venetians designed a large system of drainage ditches that was constructed between 1514 – 1560 and is still in use. The fertile soil on the plateau, the climate, the water and the flat terrain make Lassithi the perfect area to grow potatoes and other crops.
