The best map of Crete for cycling, outdoor activities, and alternative tourism.

A map to promote the outdoor tourism in Crete, support the small villages and help to extend the tourist season.

An effort to create a good map for cyclists ended with the best, most accurate and most useful map of Crete. A map that is not only for cycling tourism, but at the same time for wine tourism, religious tourism, mountaineering, canyoning, speleology, climbing tourism... and many more.

A map to give a little help to the hinterland of Crete to develop tourism. The treasure of Crete and its great advantage is the nature, geography, climate, history, cultural heritage, the Cretan cuisine. Everyone can benefit through the development of alternative tourism all year round. Our purpose is to help our villages stay alive.
