Daytrip to Nida Plateau on September 18th

The plateau of Nida is one of the largest in Crete, located at an altitude of 1450 m., in the heart of the Psiloritis Range (Mount Ida). It can be reached via the road starting from the picturesque village of Anogia.

The plateau is used as pasture and is not cultivated, as it is located in very high altitude. Although in the ancient times it was covered by a dense forest, nowadays there are no trees in the plain due to overgrazing.

The cave of Idaeon Antro is also located in Nida plateau, which, according to the myth, is the place where Zeus was raised by Amalthea goat.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hike through the beautiful landscapes and explore the hidden history!

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