Overview
An idyllic escape to the mountainous East Crete to explore the hidden gems of this uncharted region. Enjoy a personal hotel, villa or cruise pick up and drop off by your private local insider guide, with a premium vehicle at full-day disposal. Soak up the natural beauty of the Eastern Crete by collecting Cretan truffles with the assistance of a professional truffle hunter and his dogs in the heart of fertile Lassithi Plateau. Then you will enjoy a delicious Cretan lunch and wine tasting in a traditional mountainous tavern. Last but not least, you will visit the mythical Cave of Zeus and a local ceramic workshop.
