Milia Mountain Retreat - Jeep Safari Tour
US$100.16
Overview

Hop in a 4WD vehicle for a nature tour through the countryside of Western Crete to the Milia mountain retreat and eco-resort. This convenient full-day tour takes you to an altitude of 2,800 feet (850 meters) with frequent stops for admiring the scenery, snapping photographs, and learning about the culture, history, and traditions of this storied Mediterranean island. Top off the experience with a traditional Cretan lunch with wine.

What to Expect

Your transfer is available from your hotel in a range up to 25 km around Chania. Our expert drivers, with 4wd 7 seater  Mitsubishi Pajero vehicles, will drive you at:
Ano Vouves: The first Jeep Safari stop will be to the unique 3000 years old olive tree which is still productive! Admire, touch it and take plenty of photos.
Mesavlia Gorge: This gorge is a unique example of wild Cretan nature.Take photos with local mountain goats and watch the vultures fly from their nests up to the sky. A really Safari time!
Milia: After having an adventurous off road experience we arrive at Milia Mountain Retreat. Time stops here: there is no electricity, cozy stone houses brings us close to the philosophy “back to the basics”. The place is an authentic 17th century mountain settlement which has been transformed into an eco-friendly tourist complex, one of the top 50 worldwide choices of National Geographic magazine, concerning eco-tourism and agro-tourism. We will spend our lunch time here and you will enjoy Cretan cuisine and local wine.
Topolia Gorge: The wild scenery of Topolia gorge is worth seeing. Admire and take plenty of photos of wild landscape nature. 
Spilia: In our last stop we visit the “Saint John the Hermit” cave to enjoy the breathtaking view from the natural belvedere.
