Off-Road Buggy Adventure in Crete

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Come explore the Cretan mountains on a 7 hour buggy safari. Anyone holding a driver’s license can drive on this inclusive day for couples and families. This trip will lead you through picturesque villages, olive groves, the Plateau of Lasithi and the wild nature in Crete. Lunch will be served in a traditional Greek tavern. All the vehicles are automatic, user friendly, offer maximum comfort, performance and safety.
  • Explore Crete’s mountains, villages, and olive groves by off-road buggy
  • Savor a Greek lunch at a traditional taverna in Psychro
  • See the Dikti Mountains, Lasithi Plateau, and Kera Kardiotissa Monastery
  • Round-trip transfers from your hotel or port and full instruction included
What to Expect
After pickup from your Hersonissos hotel or the port, listen to a quick safety briefing and driving instructions before you set off following your guide. Pass through Old Heraklion, say goodbye to the road, and head up toward the Lasithi Plateau, a fertile volcanic plain surrounded by the Dikti Mountains. Pause at Kera Kardiotissa Monastery, an ancient Eastern Orthodox monastery; the Havgas Lakes that provide water to the Lasithi Plateau; and the village of Psychro, where you’ll enjoy an authentic taverna lunch. From here, follow a scenic mountain road through the village of Kastamonitsa back to Hersonissos. Your guide will drop you back to your hotel or port.
