9:30 Pick up time
The village of Therissos, built on the foot of White Mountains, is locals’ favorite destination regardless the season. We will drive up the 14km Therisso gorge to reach the village. The spectacular beauty of the natural environment will be a unique experience.
Therissos is also a village with great past, as it is connected to the Cretan Revolution and Resistance. In 1905, Eleftherios Venizelos (the great Greek politician) declared the union of Crete with the Greek state. Its house has turned into a museum.
We will head east of Therissos on the northern slopes of the mountains, to Drakona, where one of the most well-known taverns is located. You can wander around the small farm and creamery while your food is prepared. The traditional meal is cooked either on a wood-fired oven or a barbeque, prepared only with products from their own livestock and organic cultivations.
