BUGGY SAFARI (1/2 DAY EVENT)
The ULTIMATE off-road ADVENTURE
You are the driver!!!
Our adventure starts from our premises in Hersonissos, 25 Dimokratias Street. After the safety briefing, we start the trip heading towards the traditional village of Old Hersonissos. As we pass through the square and continue towards the mountains, our route will go around the new reservoir built between the picturesque villages of Potamies and Avdou.
Just before Potamies, about ten minutes into our journey, we ‘ll leave the tarmac and take the side roads. We ‘ll cross a dried out riverbed, pass through olive groves under the main road and continue up the mountainside where we ‘ll have a great photo opportunities of the dam.
As we enter the beautiful village of Avdou, the road opens and leads us inside the Gorge of Roza. The name derives from the variety of rock formations found inside this dramatic place. Soon we start climbing up the right side of the gorge on a very narrow and winding track.
The landscape changes rapidly as we gain altitude, giving us a “bird’s eye” view of the gorge. The unfolding scenes provide great opportunity for a photo stop as well as changing drivers.
We continue climbing through olive groves, reaching approximately 700 metres altitude before we meet the Lassithi road where our return trip begins.
A short section of asphalt road unfolds by the Monastery of Kera where we pick up the last section of the road-track. This path descends steeply into the backstreet of Gonies.
We are now back on tarmac which is the last part of our adventure and provides another opportunity to switch drivers. This is an ideal section for the less confident driver to have a go!
We offer an amazing trip with thrills, breath-taking scenery and above all, the opportunity to drive the ultimate in buggy technology the Cam Am Commander and the Polaris RZR.
