What To Expect

Lasithi Prefecture
The starting point for this tour is Hersonissos. After the necessary briefing from the driver, you will head south towards the Lassithi plateau. The road soon leads us to the dam of Aposelemi. There you can see the abandoned village of Sfendili, which, depending on the water level, is visible or not. We continue on the provincial road, among olive groves, to the picturesque village of Amariano, where you can have a drink and see the remains of the Roman aqueduct.
This is where the off-road driving begins. The landscape becomes wilder and we quickly gain altitude. However, the panoramic view compensates us. If we are lucky we will see the imposing vultures flying! The road ends at the fertile plateau of Lassithi where there were once more than 1000 windmills, which pumped groundwater to irrigate the fields.
