Head into the mountains, discover the beautiful coastline and enjoy leisurely lunches and refreshing swims in the crystal clear sea. If you have a sense of adventure then our guided jeep safaris are for you. We have a variety of routes in the Kissamos area to choose from and they make for a fantastic day out that you will never forget.
All the jeep safaris are guided and driven by our experienced and knowledgeable local guides in 4 x 4 jeeps with 3 passengers in each vehicle. We are on and off road, on sometimes very bumpy and dusty tracks!
Organized throughout the year the jeep safari days are perfect for the traveler who wants to explore the real Crete and get off the beaten track. A great adventurous family day out that will stay with you long after the suntan has faded.
ARTEMIS JEEP SAFARI
Unravel local history and legends from ancient Greece through to the 2nd world war and up to the present day. Swim in the crystal clear waters off a secluded rocky bay, explore the wilderness of the Rodopou peninsular, visit a beautiful monastery and enjoy a delicious pic nic lunch. These are just some of the highlights of the Artemis jeep safari.
Our jeeps climb to over 1,100 metres in the mountains for fantastic views to the South, West and North coast. Gain insight into rural Cretan life, culture and customs as we visit a typical village house. If luck is on our side we will see the magnificent protected birds of prey. Enjoy a delicious taverna lunch and swim on the south coast near Paleochora. These are just some of the highlights of this jeep safari.
More than just a trip to Balos beach we begin with a visit to Polyrinia – a charming sleepy traditional Cretan village that was once the fortified stronghold of the region.
