Off-Road Buggy Adventure in Crete
US$160.56
Overview

Some of Crete’s most stark and startling landscapes are not accessible from the road—so if you’re an adrenaline junkie, off-road is the way to go. Zoom past lakes and dams, up mountains and through olive groves, along blacktop roads and across dry river beds on this Hersonissos off-road buggy tour. Tour includes round-trip transfers, full instruction, and a classic taverna lunch.

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.
