Lasithi Descent

5.5 Hours Moderate 41 Km

This is a moderate one way mountain bike tour for mountain bikers, road cyclists and very active people that do an other sport frequently.

The tour starts from the famous Lasithi plateu and after an ascent of 300 meters we reach the highest point of the tour. From 1100 meters of altitude on the naked rocky mountains starts an endless magical downhill. The view is fantastic you can see the half of the island from North to South. Psiloritis the highest mountain of Crete, Asterousia mountains at the south, the olive groves and wine yards of mid Crete, Heraklion city and Dia island, the lake of Aposelemis and Hersonisos area. If the sky is clear you can see even Santorini island.

The downhill ends at Avdou traditional village where we do an extra easy uphill of 200 meters through an olive forest up to Mochos village. At the biggest piazza in Crete you will drink a fresh oranjge juice and taste some local home made meze.

The tour ends, with a last descent, at Potamies village where the mini bus waits for us.
