Lassithi Plateau

The wonderful Lassithi Plateau is located on the peaks of Idi mountain at an altitude of 800 m. Every winter, Lassithi is covered with snow and many Cretans prefer it as a winter destination to admire the white landscape. The plateau’s soil, in combination with the suitable climate, is very fertile. Lassithi plateau traditionally supplies Crete with excellent quality potatoes and vegetables. A circular road of 23 km connects the 18 villages of the plateau. On our route, we will meet Tzermiado, the capital village of the Plateau, and many other beautiful and peaceful villages such as Ag. Georgios, Ag. Kostantinos and Psychro. In the Plateau, you will have the chance to stop at beautiful picturesque villages, have lunch and coffee and admire the landscape and the remaining windmills, the trademark of the area.
