Daytrip to Lasithi Plateau on September 18th

The magnificent Lassithi Plateau is located in a peaceful and fertile region, surrounded by the wild peaks of Dikti Mountain, as well as several smaller plateaus. The altitude ranges from 800 to 850 m and there are 18 villages scattered around the plateau, built at the foot of the surrounding mountains, leaving the plains free to cultivate.

Lassithi Plateau is famous for its windmills with white cloths, built mainly by the Peloponnese settlers that arrived here in late 19th century, to irrigate the plateau. Moreover, Dikteon Andron, the cave that is believed to be Zeus’ birthplace is located in the plateau.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hike through the beautiful landscapes and visit charming villages!

This field trip is optional and will take place on 18th of September. The cost will be announced soon.
