Our first stop is the verdant one and one of the representative villages of Crete, Potamies.

We continue uphill on dirt roads to the gorge of Embassa. Impressive mountains and wildlife nature with unique views. Opportunity to collect some local herbs.
We proceed to the Lassithi Plateau. Optional visit to the cave of Zeus or just a moment of relaxation with the panoramic view of the Plateau.
Time for delicious authentic food baked in the wood oven in one of the best traditional taverns. Our last stop in the picturesque village of Krasi. Its square is dominated by Fountains and the imposing centuries-old plane trees up to 2000 years old and with the oldest plane tree in Crete.
