Ready for something remarkable?

Lassithi Plateau from Bird’s Eye View. Local Flavors. Mythical Immersion.


We truly love some destinations in Crete. And Lassithi Plateau is among our beloved escapades on the island.


This time, we wanted to bring together the dramatic expanse of the Mythical Plateau from a bird’s eye view with the local experiences and authentic cuisine of the Mountainous Lassithi.


This luxury experience is designed to create your remarkable stories of Crete. A hot-air ballooning safari above Zeus’ birthplace and then an immersive adventure with your local guide. And when the sun sets, we will take you to a Cretan house to taste traditional flavors paired with the finest wines of local produce.


Remember, Snami Travel design begins where the ordinary ends.


Let’s get in touch to create remarkable stories of Crete.

Flying balloon above the Mythical Lassithi Plateau and then a luxurious adventure (authentic to the bone) with tasting notes of East Crete. Now, that is what I call the perfect off-beat travel experience!”

Customize your hot air balloon safari in Lassithi Plateau

What would be the perfect adventure in East Crete?


It starts with a sunrise hot-air balloon flight over the sprawling valley. Following a leisurely afternoon spent exploring with your local guide the charming villages and emblematic Windmills of Selí Ambélou. By the end of the day, enjoy a sunset dinner, tasting mouthwatering delicacies and a family wine collection.


These are just three experiences (of many) you could be enjoying or planning right now. Let us inspire you below.



Custom travel ideas to choose from after your balloon safari:

  • Professional photographer to edit your hot-air ballooning story
  • Cooking class demonstration by a Cretan chef at his mansion
  • Truffle hunting with an expert hunter and his lovely Lagotto Romagnolo Italian dogs
  • A visit to the Cave of Zeus and the holy Monastery of Panagia Kera Kardiotissa
  • A visit to a family ceramics workshop
  • Olive oil tasting at Vassilakis estate

Let’s customize this day together

We recommend wearing cotton clothes, sports shoes, and obligatory sunglasses and hats. It may be windy at altitude — better bring a jacket. There are no age restrictions for flying in a balloon. But you should estimate the possibilities of your body and health adequately.
