Join up for a full day bike tour to see the beautiful south of Crete, ending up back on the north side. This tour takes you from cost to cost with wonderful mountain views.  


In a minivan with the bikes on a trailer we ascend to Crete's most unspoilt mountain regions. This is an easy-medium full day tour and not suitable for all ages! Minimum age is 12 years old. Expect good surfaces with a few easy uphill passages. At the starting point the bikes are unloaded, you get your helmets and an experienced guide will accompany you downhill into the coastal areas. The group will be using minor asphalt roads and well-maintained agricultural roads with only soft uphill passages. It is not a competition but a fun adventure. The service van follows the group throughout the day.

The group starts its downhill ride from the middle of the island through a breathtaking landscape with picturesque gorges right down to the south coast. With clear weather you can even spot the southernmost point of Europe, the Greek island of Gavdos. Following is the lunchtime break in the village of Paleochora and a rest on its sandy beach. Get ready for the afternoon experience of unspoilt villages in Crete's most remote corner. A speedy downhill ride through the Sassalos Gorge leads you back to the North Coast and the Bay of Kissamos.

Notice! Please inform us your gender and height when you have booked a bike tour. Note: Riders should not be afraid of speedy downhills or suffer from vertigo- we total 2000 downhill meters!

Minimum age is 12 years old.
