Overview

Start your day with a pickup from your hotel or nearby meeting point in Georgioupolis, Rethymno, Bali, Amoudara, Agia Pelagia or Fodele. Greet your two local guides, then hop inside an air-conditioned vehicle and relax on the journey to Missiria.

On arrival, receive a full safety briefing and instructions, then climb inside your 4-seater 4x4 vehicle. Choose to sit in a passenger seat, or get comfortable in the driving seat, and then set off in a convoy behind the tour guides' vehicle. Before long, find yourself deep in the Cretan countryside, zooming down dirt tracks, and passing quaint villages as well as verdant olive fields and vineyards.

Make your first stop at Spili, a beautiful mountain village in the province of Agios Vassilios. With time here spent at your leisure, perhaps head for the main square to see the ornate fountains that provide fresh drinking water from the clear rivers of Mt Ida. Or, traverse the narrow lanes and find yourself amid charming houses and flower-filled gardens.

Return to your 4x4, and soak up the views as you head for Preveli Palm Beach, located in the south of the island. At around midday, arrive by the beach and enjoy a stop off at a tavern for a traditional Cretan lunch that might include delicacies such as souvlaki (skewered meat and vegetables) served with salad, potatoes and bread.

Next, find yourself a spot on the beach and spend the next two hours (approx.) as you wish. Dive into the crystalline waters of the Libyan Sea and enjoy a refreshing swim, or simply relax under the shade of a palm tree and feel the warm sand between your toes.

After, hop back inside your 4x4 and head off-road for a thrilling ride through the craggy landscape alongside Kourtaliotiko Gorge. Pass thundering waterfalls, gushing fountains, and deserted monasteries and chapels before stopping to learn more about this impressive natural wonder and posing for a group photo.

Then, continue along the Old National Highway back to Missiria, where you’ll swap the 4x4 for your air-conditioned transfer vehicle. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off back at the original start point.
