CRETAN BIKE PANORAMA

 

Explore the very best of Crete with a bike tour created especially for the warm months.

Cretan Bike Panorama is an exclusive trip that combines the best one way cycling routes of Crete. This trip will immerse you into the Cretan nature, culture, local history, traditions and cuisine.

The Cretan bike Panorama is recommended only for mountainbike and road cyclists. You want to explore the best of Crete but want to be easy the same time.

Philosophy

Cretan bike panorama is focused on experiences not on training. We do not want to improve your riding skills and make you better cyclists. We just want to show you the best of our island, taste our cuisine, explore our culture, swim at the crystal blue waters beaches … have fun.

We created this bike tours especially for the hot days of the summer. The starting point of the tours is higher than 900meters of altitude. On the mountains the temperatures are much cooler. we ride the 80% of the total climbs high on the mountains, so even the hot days cycling is not exhausting. The total downhill of the tours is much more that the uphill. The wind is cool and you do not have to worry about the heat.

Coffee stop

During every tour we do a regeneration stop at a traditional cafe where we offer you a coffee and get some extra power.
