All about the trip
Explore the rugged White Mountains and steep Samaria Gorge in an exciting off-road adventure. Discover the amazing wildlife and savor the unmatched views from the mountain tops.
We will pick you up in your hotel and drive in a premium off-road vehicle through the Chania orange valley. We pass through the villages of Varipetros, Agia, Alikianos and Fournes and start climbing to the Kallergi Refuge at the altitude of 1 680 m.
Next up is a traditional Cretan lunch accompanied by excellent local wine and raki with the fantastic view of the mountain peaks all around us and the Libyan Sea towards the south.
From there we will continue to Omalos Plateau and the entrance to Samaria Gorge at Xiloskalo for more panoramic views before heading to the historical village of Lakkoi.
Please note that from December to March we travel with snow in the mountains and the route may be altered according to weather conditions.
During winter the route to the Kallergi Refuge may be inaccessible due to dense snow. In that case, we will reach Xiloskalo and follow off-road routes until the village of Therissos and have our lunch. Then we continue through Therisso Gorge all the way back to Chania.What Wikipedia Says
