Full description

Depart Hersonissos on a Quad Bike safari into the mountains of Crete and discover a more authentic side of the island as you get back to nature on small, traffic-free roads. Drive to the traditional villages of Koutouloufari, Piscopiano and old Hersonissos before heading to the Lasithi plateau. Continue along the riverbed en route to the village of Potamies, and pass small gardens of fruit trees and olive groves along the way.

Enjoy the scent of different herbs and listen to the sound of millions of tiny tsitsikia (insects). Visit some small churches and see sheep and goats grazing as you continue to the traditional village of Karouzanos. Stop at a café before driving towards Askous village.

Get an amazing view of Lyttos and Kasteli before traveling downhill to the village. Enjoy an authentic tsikoudia (raki) and some tasty snacks. Then, continue downhill to the Aposelemis dam and underwater village of Sfentili en route to the Panagias monastery.

Super fun and long ride with the quad. The view is super nice once you are on top of the mountain! The guide is friendly and makes the experience even more enjoyable. The food that came with it was better than expected. All in all it is definitely worth the price!!!

The tour was perfect and the surroundings are just beautiful. The tour guide Andreas was very personable and passed on his knowledge of the landscape to us. In between you take short breaks, sometimes with places to eat and drink. Beware of the risk of dirt due to dust - but that's part of driving a quad! We would definitely do it again, it was a lot of fun.

Super nice trip. Really recommended to everyone! You see some beautiful places that you don't see right away... several small stops for short breaks (drinking, smoking) and a big stop in the tavern with delicious food (mega olive oil, bread, specially grown tomatoes and and and) all in All in all a very nice excursion that is absolutely worth the money!
