Level II mountain bike tours in the Georgioupolis – Rethymnon – Panormos – Bali area.

Arsani

This is our “MTB test tour” – one through the fantastic mountain bike hinterland of Rethymnon. The small mountain villages with their cosy tavernas tempt us to take a rest. The tour ends with a breathtaking descent back to the north coast.

Distance: 50 km / 720 m Altitude gain.

Melidoni

Through endless ancient olive groves, we follow the path to the Melidoni Cave, one of the biggest and most interesting on Crete. After a short visit into the cave, famous because of its history and stalactites, we head back to the MTB center along the north coast.

Distance: 57 km / 900 m Altitude gain.

Margarites

A relaxing mountain bike tour to Margarites, the Mecca of pottery and ceramics. The ancient olive groves which we ride through give us the feeling of Crete’s timelessness.

Distance: 68 km / 990 m Altitude gain.

Thronos

A fantastic mountain biking experience. Rethymnon to Thronos means intriguing climbs and breathtaking descends through the spectacular mountains and through untouched villages. Both the smooth road sections and hard tracks require good mountain bike control.

Distance: 87 km / 1.750 m Altitude gain.

Fantastico

From Maroulas we climb mostly on gravel tracks up to Mount Gargani (700 m) and take a difficult downhill directly into the valley of Amari. After crossing the Prassano riverbed we climb again to an altitude of 450 m in order to return to Rethymnon on one of Crete’s hardest downhills.

Distance: 115 km / 1.900 m Altitude gain.

Lefka Ori Crossing

The White Mountains, the wildest and the most aggressive mountain range of Crete fulfil every mountain biking dream. We cross the Sfakia and are passing lonely settlements on the way from Asigonia to Argiroupolis, where we take a break by the old water well. In Kato Poros we decide on a route to the mountain bike center, depending on wishes and fitness.
