Greet your qualified driver-guide at the pier and hop aboard your specially equipped Land Rover to begin your four-wheel-drive adventure.

Your journey takes you to the plateau of Katharo, where the roads are non-existent and the mountains reach a height of 4,921 feet. Venture through traditional villages and make stops for photos as you continue along the dirt tracks and across gurgling rivers, a perfect test for your vehicle and an ideal opportunity for you to experience the thrill of off-roading.

Hungry for a snack, arrive at an area kafenio, or Greek café, to enjoy typical small bites, served with an alcoholic drink called raki, popular in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and here in Crete.

Back aboard your 4x4, pay a call to the village of Krista, one of the most picturesque hamlets of the region, and then make your return to the pier.
