Activity description

Experience thrilling off-roading, wonderful scenery, and a short Jungle walk to the Richti Waterfall of Crete on this exciting jeep tour!

Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation and will take you on a trip you will never forget! Your journey will start with a 1-hour drive around the bay of Mirabello, during which you will enjoy unique and spectacular views and you will visit some interesting spots like the Minoan remains in Gournia.

To reach the Richtis waterfall, you will have to go off-road for about 15 minutes before parking and getting off the jeep. From there, it will be a 30-minute walk to the waterfall. During this walk, you will feel as if you were walking in the middle of the jungle, with loads of greenery, sounds of birds, and running water.

Once you've reached the gorgeous waterfall, you can relax, take photos, dip in the pool and just enjoy yourself.

From here we now travel to a taverna with a spectacular view over islands and coast. There, we serve your traditional fresh natural lunch with wine, water, and even some desserts.

After lunch, you will visit the 3250-year-old olive tree in Kavousi. It is the oldest tree on the island!

Very good

The views were stunning but the road down to the gorge was frightening at times because of the sheer drop. The walk to the waterfall was amazing. We could see crabs in crystal clear water and the smell of fresh herbs growing along the path made the walk even more enjoyable

Beautiful day trip

Beautiful spot at the waterfall with a refreshing swim after a very enjoyable hike. Delicious meal at the panoramic restaurant with an incredible view and a really lovely visit to the 4000 year old olive tree and minoan ruins, ending on a pleasant visit to an olive oil factory to learn about something very important to greece with opportunity to get some souvenirs.

Beautiful experience

The activity was great a nice walk through the forest to the waterfall and a quick dip, the drive there was pleasant as we stopped at a few viewpoints which were lovely. The lunch after was delicious and very filling after the walk.
