Our day is the perfect way to explore the central part of Crete with two different plateaus, mythology and lots of fun and interesting information about Crete and the local life.Your day starts from the moment you meet your drivers where they take you to your first stop at the Potamies Reservoir water dump. Continuing our journey through paths and olive trees, we reach the ruins of the Roman aqueduct of Lyttos. Next stop is the quaint village of Kastamonitsa where we join the locals for a coffee break in the traditional cafeneion. From here the real off-road adventure begins by climbing high into the mountains and following the ancient minaon path that leads us to the cave of Zeus, whilst these days we will pass only shepherds and their goats on our travels. At Zeus’ Cave (where mythology says that Zeus, the father of all the gods was born!) there is a 6€ entrance fee and walking shoes are recommended. Our next point gives you the opportunity to take photographs as if with a helicopters view of the Lassithi Plateau which is from here where we drop down to the plateau for your delicious BBQ lunch with unlimited wine!Then on to Lassithi plateau itself where time has virtually stood still, the local people are mainly farmers.
