    What to Expect
    Get picked up from your Crete hotel in the morning aboard your 4x4 Land Rover transport, traveling into the island’s wild interior for a day of unexpected discoveries, local culture, and lesser-known sights.

    Check out landmarks like the Potamon Dam and the Patsos Gorge, where you can take a look at the strange rock formations while sipping on a coffee or Raki. Climb back into your vehicle and continue driving to the village of Spili, a hamlet that’s long-been associated with its celebrated spring water. Have a sip of the cold mountain water from one of the village’s 25 lion’s head fountains and then check out the village shops selling artisanal crafts.

    Proceed via the island’s dirt tracks to another rustic Cretan village called Kerame, where you’ll have 360-degree views of Crete’s south coast and the Libyan Sea. Once you’ve gotten suitably “dirty” from your backcountry adventure proceed to Preveli, known to be one of the most picturesque beaches in all of Crete. Take advantage of the unique opportunity to swim in the beach’s cold mountain waters as well as the ocean, offering a refreshing break from your off-road adventure.

    Following your beach visit, you’ll take a break for an included three-course lunch featuring traditional island specialties accompanied by unlimited wine. Once your belly is full, drive back up into the mountains on your return trip. You’ll drive through the Kroustaliotico Gorge en route, offering dramatic views of the city of Rethymno down below. You’ll be dropped off at your hotel at the end of the adventure.
