Heraklion: Culinary Day Trip to Lassithi Plateau with Dinner

5. Heraklion: Culinary Day Trip to Lassithi Plateau with Dinner

From the Minoan times, Lassithi Plateau is the earth of fertility and love for food. A rich Cretan land to remind us of just how satisfying it is to source and cook your own ingredients. It’s why we love it. We want to take you away from the crowded places of countless Instagram posts to the island’s most untouched escapes where time has slowed down and history persists. That is why our Travel Experts have designed this culinary adventure for lovers of authentic gastronomy, art, and mythic landscapes. This luxury trip will take you through the charming and often forgotten country of Lassithi, across small villages, emblematic Windmills, and the Plateau’s spectacular views. In the late afternoon, find yourself at a Cretan house that was built next to the Cave of Zeus on the ancient ruins that still exude timeless energy. Here you will meet the chef-owner of Mansion Halavro (means playground among archaic ruins) who will indulge you in the artistic pleasures of Cretan cuisine.

Alex and Sergei the crew members were top notch, funny, professional. The excursion was amazing, the weather was perfect with lots of sunshine. We were able to dive around the island of Dia and explore the seabed in apnea. The only downside remains the poverty of the underwater fauna and flora in this sector. The excursion would be even better if we could visit the island and have a historical tour of it. I even recommend that locals do it at least once. Ps: Alex prepared the lunch dishes like no one else, it was delicious.

We had a wonderful sailing trip. George and Alexandra were amazing hosts! We felt very comfortable and can only recommend this tour to everyone. The highlight was the birthday cake for one of our participants, which we organized. A thousand thanks for that! Greek cordiality 1000♥️♥️♥️♥️

Super worth the cost & a genuinely nice experience! The captain and the co-captain were super lovely & made us feel very welcomed from the beginning. Fantastic views, a lovely time to swim & a right laugh. We loved it!

Nice Food. Nice People. Great island. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling! Would definitely recommend it and do it again

This was a major highlight of our trip to Crete, highly recommend
