MOUNTAIN QUAD BIKE SAFARI
Come and join us on this unique opportunity to explore the highest mountain range in Crete, the magnificent Psiloritis with the added thrill of a quad bike. A quad safari you wont forget !
The day safari is partly escorted and partly self drive with clear instructions and lasts approximately 6.5 hours with refreshment and photo stops throughout the day.
We begin our day at 09:00 hours driving around 35 kms south of the Capital, Heraklion until we reach the breathtaking Digenis Lake. Here we will make a short stop for refreshments before beginning our exciting ascent.
Leaving behind the small village of Gergeri we make our way up the stunning mountain stopping to admire the view and take a few memorable photos along the way.
Continuing until we reach a traditional Cretan “Mitata” (stone house), where we will make a short stop for a sandwich and soft drink under the cool shade of the trees.
From here on, every turn creates a wonderful picture! Crete’s unique beauty comes to life with rocky paths, ravines, indigenous trees, mountain goats, birds, amazing wildlife, hidden churches and much more!
On reaching our ascent at the impressive height of 1500 metres, we will make an essential viewing and rest stop!
It’s then time to begin our careful descent back down the mountain until we reach the village of Gergeri where a traditional taverna lunch awaits us. Bon appetite!
