Cycling tours

Family cycling in Crete. Fun family cycling holidays. Crete is perfect for relaxing & enjoying. See areas which others don't! Also bike hire in Crete.

Family cycling tours in Crete! We explore Crete’s beautiful mountain areas. Ride leisurely down to coastal areas on paved, slightly decending roads.

With the bus and the bicycles loaded on our bike truck, we have a short transfer to the starting point of the cycling tour. After unloading the bicycles we will start our downhill experience. This is a fascinating way to learn more about the landscape, culture and people of Crete.

Please see the program for the length of the cycling tour (in km). You will be taken to the starting points by bus. These cycling programs are easy-to-do because of the “downhill character”: suited for beginners, weekend bikers, families with their children and all participants who have a limited physical condition.

White Mountains

An island crossing with a special quality. This tour shows us the spectacular topography of Crete – the steeply sloping, barren South Coast and the gently sloping, green north coast – pure downhill cycling fun! We will start the tour from the Askifou Heights. As we will be swimming in the Libyan Sea, do not forget to bring your swimsuits!

The country and its people. From the Nida Plateau on the Psiloritis, the highest mountain on Crete, we start an unforgettable cycling experience – 38 km downhill!
