Nature & Thrill Seekers | Things to do

For the visitors who are looking for exciting rides with four-wheeled vehicles but also with the well-known "quads", many off-road trails [quad & jeep safaris] have been formed, which allow getting to know some more inaccessible places of Cretan nature, crossing dense forests, mountain slopes and verdant plains. The adrenaline rushes and the entertainment reaches fever peach, crossing rivers & high mountain slopes and discovering Crete's "wild" side.

An ideal way for the whole family to have fun is horseback riding, as it is an enjoyable activity that combines sports with touring and contact with the beautiful horses. Various equestrian clubs are addressed to small groups & families and organize free-riding in stunning areas of the prefecture of Heraklion, in lush forests, on the beach of Karteros and the gorge of Karteros, which combines historical interest, including the mills and the church of Ai Nikolas from the 19th century.

As for water activities, the options include water sports on the organized beaches [kite surfing, paragliding, windsurfing, pedal boating], exciting scuba diving, sailing, and getaways on a boat in sheltered coves! Do not miss the opportunity to dive into the magical seabed but also to explore nearby pristine islands on day trips or rent a boat with a skipper, ensuring a comfortable and safe journey.
