On this spectacular trip we want to show you a very special, very different part of our island, an almost untouched area with high mountains, old villages and places far away from typical seaside resorts and from any tourism industry. We want to show you the genuine Crete, the island, as it once was…
We start our trip visiting a typical Cretan olive-oil factory. Above the historic plateau of Askifou we make our first photo-stop. The next opportunity to take more nice pictures is above the beautiful Imbros Gorge. After a short coffee-break there we start the most imposing part of our bus ride. High in the mountains, on the plateau of Asfendou and at the village of Kallikrati we find enough places for the next fantastic pictures. At the village of Argiroupolis we stop for a nice walk and visit one of the oldest churches on our island.
Afterwards, as one of the highlights of the day, we visit the picturesque Kournas Lake, where we stay at a typical Cretan village tavern, for a well-deserved traditional lunch (not included!), enjoying a magnificent view of the
lake and of the mountains, we have crossed just few hours ago.
