OPTION 1: Mountain Route
Our adventure starts from Malia. After a safety briefing we start the trip heading to the Minoa palace in Malia. As we pass through the palace and continue towards the village Sisi we will cross a forest, pass through olive groves under the main road and continue up the mountains where we will have a great photo under the one of the biggest and the oldest (over than 800 years old) oak in the island. Then we continue to the village Vrahasi. The route snakes through the narrow village streets of Vrahasi and climbs steeply up towards the old Monastery of Agios Georgios Vrahasiotis.
The off-road track offers great opportunities for amazing photographs and breathtaking scenery. Every 30 minutes we will stop for photographs and a chance to change drivers. During this time, the guide will inform you about the places that you visit.
