This is a tour like no other since you are always running the risk of coming across a monster foraging or hunting. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the fleeting shadow of a griffon, as you climb one of Crete’s best preserved Minoan trails.

This is a self-guided mobile tour provided by our tour-guide app. The tour is based on an award-winning storytelling concept and the fascinating narratives prepared by handpicked destination experts. Enjoy this multilingual tour by using your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet at your own pace, even if you are offline. The interactive map on your screen will guide you step by step to explore all the points of interest along your route. Each stop comes with a selection of signature stories, allowing you to tailor this experience to your personal interests and schedule.

The Lasithi plateau is the largest plateau in Crete. It is roughly oval in shape and stretches 11 km (6.8 mi) in the east-west direction. There are 17 villages with 2000 year-round residents. The plateau lies at an average altitude of 840 m (2,760 ft). Heavy snowfall is frequent in the wintertime and snow can persist until mid-spring. The olive tree does not grow naturally on the plateau, where the climate is different from the typical Mediterranean climate that prevails in Crete.

To enter the plateau you are encouraged to follow the famous Minoan Path. After all, when in Crete do as the Minoans did. This winding path allows you to walk on the footsteps of the island’s prehistoric inhabitants and enjoy the same views, plants, and wild animals they did. It is perhaps as close as you can get to an authentic Minoan / Cretan experience.  

Τhis tour combines information on incredible and unique plants of the Cretan countryside with stories from the inexhaustible imagination of the ancient Minoans, who populated their island with the most fascinating cast of monsters and elusive creatures. You will come face to face with the terrifying Minotaur; the griffin who skills as a hunter remain unsurpassed; Talos, a giant made of bronze entrusted with the safety of the island of Crete; the elegant bird-ladies; and the Minoan genii, bizarre creatures feared by beasts and men alike.  

To take this self-guided tour you will need the app on your iOS or Android device.

HIGHLIGHTS
