Leaving the stables we go through the village of Kato Kapetaniana heading north towards the location of Ohria (a renowned pasture with an impressive view of the plain of Messara). We have our first stop under the centenarian planes outside the chapel of Agios Panteleimonas (14th century).
We set off in 30 minutes and head to the location of Poles, while coming across ruins of Minoan and ancient settlements. After riding for 17km, we stop at an abandoned settlement situated at a prominent location among the mountains of Agios Nikolaos. We rest and enjoy our lunch under the centenarian planes next to a creek. After a 2-hour stop we follow the route to Sopata enjoying the unique landscape of the plain of Messara and Mount Psiloritis. In about 45 minutes we are at the foothills of Mount Kofinas heading west towards Kapetaniana enchanted by the view of the Libyan Sea.
