Description

Our most demanding Level 1 tour starts at the Gulf of Kissamos and crosses from the North to the West Coast via a steady uphill strech until we reach the small pass at Lousakies. We bike along the spectacular West Coast which impresses us with almost unreal colours of emerald and turquoise. Cycling high above the coastline we enjoy breathtaking views down to inaccessible beaches and crashing white surf.

At lunchtime we relax in the little-known bay of Sfinari where we are rewarded with warm Cretan hospitality, healthy local specialities and a dip into the waves. The afternoon etappe challenges our leg muscles once more with uphill passages through remote mountain scenery and flower-filled villages until we gain the second pass of the day. Turning north again we are finally free-wheeling downhill, crossing the narrow gorge of Topolia, we speed down right to the sands of Mithimna Beach at the North Coast. Now we have truly encircled the most northwestern corner of Crete on bike.This tour is suitable for regular cyclists who are well used to mountainous terrain and have a good level of fitness. Expect altitude gains of 600-800 altimetres. Minibus will follow cyclists throughout the tour, so there is always the chance to hitch a ride if things should be too tough.
