JOIN OUR BUGGY SAFARI TOURS
Our Buggy safari tours offer the most interactive activity you can experience in the Cretan wilderness and its natural surroundings. Choose one of our OFF- ROAD guided tours and experience Crete a different way!
Some of Crete’s most stark and startling landscapes are not accessible from the road so if you are an adrenaline junkie, off-road is the way to go. Zoom past lakes and dams, up mountains and through olive groves, along blacktop roads and across dry river beds on this Hersonissos off-road buggy tour.
A full day event that takes you into the places only locals are familiar with. Visit little known hideouts and experience off- road tracks with a stop for lunch in a traditional taverna.

After pickup we will have a quick safety briefing and driving instructions before we will all set off following our guide. We will pass through the village of Old Hersonissos and head off to Lasithi Plateu, a fertile volcanic plain surrounded by the Dikti Mountains. During this trip we will have several stops for pictures and driver change. Following we will have a pause at Kera Kardiotissa Monastery, an ancient Eastern Orthodox monastery and the Lakes of Havgas where all of the region gets its water from. Finally we will visit the village of Psychro, where we will all enjoy a well cooked lunch in an authentic Cretan taverna.
