All about the trip
Explore wildlife and traditional Cretan villages on this mountain off-road adventure. Visit the historical Halepa Monastery once a hiding place of Cretan rebels and watch live cheese making in the shepherd’s hut Mitato.
We will pick you up in your hotel and head for the mountains in a premium off-road vehicle. Our experienced driver will navigate safely the uncharted routes of our expedition.
Along the way we pass the traditional villages of Garazo, Faratsi and Veni before reaching the Halepa Monastery. Built on a hill, the monastery became a strategic hiding place for Cretan rebels many times in history.
From there we keep on climbing all the way up to the shepherd’s hut Mitato. We can try a shot of local raki here and watch live cheese making and of course taste the delicious cheese.
After this appetizer, we will continue to the village of Axos where lunch will be served in a traditional tavern. This is a perfect chance to discover authentic Cretan cuisine with excellent wine.
