Getting out and about on a bike takes you at a speed where you can take in the amazing sights, sounds, and fragrances of Crete as well are being able to interact with the friendly locals.

The incredibly different terrains on the island lends itself perfectly to a wide range of different cycling tours that cater to all levels of fitness. From the mountainous areas and rocky paths, to the large plateaus and flatter coastal regions there is something for all the members of the family to enjoy.

Different guided tours are available for either seriously fit cycling enthusiasts, or for beginners/families with children/weekend cyclists etc. who require a less demanding route (often downhill from the mountains to the coast, or along gently undulating off road tracks), and a leisurely pace. Guides, transfers, support vehicles with bike trailers, bike, and helmet are supplied on cycling excursions.

Modern, well maintained mountain bikes, trekking bikes, city bikes and children's bikes can be rented and delivered to your villa by a choice of bike companies if required. Ideal for pottering around the village or exploring the smaller trails through the orange and olive groves in the flatter area behind Kalives that includes the villages of Stylos, Nea Horio, and Armeni.
