Mountain bike

Mountain biking in an unspoilt area between olive trees and aromatic herbs, between rough mountains and deep valleys, between sheep and goats, to distant mountain villages and deserted beaches, to archeological sites and other tourist attractions.

Every trail offers the possibility of a fresh dive in the sea from a remote beach and of a bite to eat or a cool drink in a hidden village where time has really come to a standstill. You will invariably be welcomed there with a heartfelt “jasou” or “jasas” because hospitality is not an idle word. The area is genuinely Greek, the weather is always fantastic, no mass tourism or crowds here, no big holiday resorts.

Crete has to be felt and experienced, here you can combine off-road mountain biking with a real holiday.

If a fitness lifestyle suits you and you like mountain biking, then this is the place for you to be. Explore the beautiful area between Palekastro and Kato Zakros through the mountain biking paths and learn more about the landscape, the culture and the people who inhabit this beautiful island.

Our website offers maps and information on cycling routes on dirt roads and old trails through the County of Itanos and explains how to visit villages and mountainous or coastal areas. Enjoy the wonderful views and smells of Crete, the island of contrasts!

Walk unique paths, enjoy the beaches and savor the gorgeous areas of Lassithi. Discover our history and culture through walks and tours that will be unforgettable. And experience intense moments of entertainment through the incredible suggested activities.
