The 3 great climbs to Lasithi from Hersonisos

One of the most famous climbs of Crete and the most popular for cyclists starting from Hersonissos and Heraklion is the climb to Lasithi Plateau at the north entrance, the Ampelos.

Starting from Hersonissos you can climb up to Lasithi plateau by three different roads which, the last six kilometers after the Krasi village, follow the same route. The scenery is breathtaking and the views spectacular. If you want to do some extra Kilometers you can do the round of Lasithi Plateau.
