We experience Crete’s most beautiful mountain areas. The tour leader will guide you leisurely down to coastal areas on paved, sometimes slightly ascending roads. A fascinating way to learn more about the landscape, culture and the people of Crete. You will be taken to the bicycle starting-points by bus. This cycling program is easy-to-do because of the “downhill character”: suited for cycling beginners, weekend bikers, families with their cycling children and for all participants who have a limited physical condition. Our TOP tours are The White Mountains, Kournas, and Arkadi. On every tour we have breathtaking views, cycle through little villages, indulge in the local cuisine and go swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan sea!
All of the tours are approximately 40 to 50 km in length. Every tour is at least 75% down hill. For sporty cyclers, we have 2 - 3 stretches where we cut the group loose so that they can also have a challenge.
During our tours, we will visit small mountain villages. And have the opportunity to sample the local Cretan breakfast, ride through or along spectacular gorges, watch the majestic Cretan eagles and vultures which are circling above us. Indulge in the local cuisine, go swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea, the Libyan Sea or the only freshwater lake in Crete. Depending on the route we will also visit local olive oil presses, wineries, archeological sites or monasteries.
At the end of the tour we will visit a local Taverna, were all local dishes will be served. During the tour we ask all bikers if they wish to join, as the cook prepares everything fresh.
