Which best way to explore one of the most virgin and wild territories of the Aegean islands, other than to go on a 4x4 jeep safari to the west side of Milos island? This tour is the adventure of a lifetime exploring secluded beaches and extraordinary landscapes in a luxurious 4x4. Milos is an island of great differences, with an entire region that is far enough from any village or trace of civilization to be named as virgin or wild territory. The west side of the island is a classified Natura 2000 protected territory and is waiting for you to expore it. This intriguing western side of the island we will be exploring with our 4x4 Milos Off Road Experience tour, getting you to areas that regular vehicle would not be able to reach, without the stress of directions or road conditions, as you allow our experienced escort to lead you to explore the hidden Milos. You will swim in crystal clear waters and avoid the commercial side of the island, with this unforgettable experience.
With this full day private tour, operated in a 4x4 luxurious vehicle, our experienced English-speaking escort will take you in this Aegean adventure with an indicative itinerary that will best outline the real character of Milos.The tour will start from your hotel, in the morning, at approximately 10:00 and you will head to your first stop, Papafragas cave. The northern coast of Milos is practically laced and this volcanic open-top cave is among the not-to-miss sights of the island. After you have taken a glimpe of the north side of the island, the tour will take you to Sarakiniko beach. Sarakiniko is one of the most iconic beaches of Greece, one of the most famous of Milos. The white volcanic rocks set up an extraordinary lunar landscape where you will not only enjoy the panoramic view of this natural miracle, but also explore the mesmerizing environment with our experienced escort.Leaving behind the inhabited part of the island, you will be driven into the more virgin western territory of the island, you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of West Milos and the are of Agia Marina, home to impressive regional flora and fauna species and accessible only by a 4x4 vehicle. Take a moment to enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view and get back on the road to continue the Milos adventure through the unwelcoming dirt roads. You will soon reach Cape Vani, the imposing Mars territory that forms the north-west extreme of Milos. This eye-catching cape was hom to the legendary old manganese mines of Milos, and features unique rock formations in black and hues of red, a landscape that is barely of this world. This tour could not be complete without a stop to enjoy swimming in the crystal clear waters of a secluded beach of the west and our recommendation is Agathia beach. The west side offers the best chance for enjoying a swim in an almost deserted beach and Agathia is just this; mermerizing waters and privacy to top off this day trip.
