What to Expect

This new and exciting cycling tour is designed especially for lovers of nature who want to discover the inner beauty of Crete! In the morning you'll be picked up by bus from your hotel and then continue the bus ride to the Monastery of Vidiani, located at the foot of the Louloudaki Mountain. Here you will have a chance to explore the monastery, which was founded in the mid 19th century and is still in use by the monks today. It also houses a natural history museum which includes a fascinating exhibition of the wild birds of Crete.

From here you'll set off on our bikes to cycle across the beautiful Lassithi Plateau and enjoy the breathtaking views and stunning Cretan countryside. Lassithi is a unique patchwork of green and yellow fields hemmed in by the Diktean Mountains, each patchwork area is irrigated by its own windmill. The picturesque white windmills work to water the fertile plain which covers an area of approximately 25,000 sq km. You will cycle through traditional villages, stopping for coffee along the way before you continue our journey.

Later you will have a barbecue lunch in the Cretan countryside before getting back on the bikes and cycling down to the Homosapien Museum, which graphically illustrates the way the people lived in the area. You will find some great information and examples of how prehistoric men and women worked the fertile land of Crete. From there you will hop on the bus and drive down through the village of Mochos. The first sight of the village nestling in a hollow with the imposing mountains as a backdrop is breathtakingly beautiful. Continuing our bus ride you will head to the beach, where you will be able to go swimming and snorkeling or just relax before being taken back to your hotel. An amazing way to explore the unique and beautiful island of Crete.
