Ierapetra - Psiloritis Mountain - Anogia
One way approx. 172.0 km, 3h driving time

Crete offers a variety of paysages, from long coastlines and sandy beaches to wild, rocky mountains and plateaus. Psiloritis, known also as Mount Ida, is the island’s highest mountain range. Drive to the Rethymno region and up the mountain while enjoying the breathtaking view and wild beauty. Psiloritis is a great hiking spot but not only. Head to the Nida plateau which is located at an alti- tude of 1400 meters. Do not miss the unique chance of visiting a sacred place where the god of gods was raised! The cave of Zeus, Idaion Andron, is just a short walk away and is considered to be the place where Zeus was hid, fed and raised by the Amaltheia goat.

Not to Miss

  • Find out when the Skinakas observatory, on Psiloritis, is open to the public!
  • Sfendoni Cave in Zoniana is worth visiting.
  • Stop at the kafenio in Doxa for some cheespies and a coffee.

Anogia is a legendary village, known for its great musical tradition and its strong and unique culture. Pick a tavern: here is the ideal place to try “antikristo” a traditional meat delicacy cooked in low fire for hours.
