Visit a Shepherd’s Hut,
This is a call to become part of the primitive and challenging life Cretan shepherds have on “Lefka Ori” mountain.
Our adventure begins!
Expert drivers will take you through olive, orange and lemon groves. A few minutes later the urban landscape is far away!
Venizelos Gorge: Our first stop, is in that amazing gorge. Admire and take plenty of photos of wild landscape nature.
Therisso : A picturesque village, a turning point in the local history. The Cretan revolution started right here, in 1905!
Shepherd’s Hut: Things are getting more and more adventurous. An off road route is a challenge worth’s living. Half an hour later we reach the shepherd’s hut the traditional “Mitato”, where shepherds live and produce cheese following hundred years old techniques.
Therisso: Lunch time! Taste Greek cuisine, wine and hospitality.
Vatolakos : In our last stop we visit a nice small museum, which was an olive mill in the 19th century. Driving through olive, orange and lemon groves again we will be back to the starting point.
