Arcas Travel Services
And this tour combines history, culture, mountains, beaches, lakes, good food, lots of raki and Cretan music! You will begin in Heraklion, the capital, and you will follow the coast passing through Agios Nikolaos, Ierapetra, Palaiochora and finally Rethymno. On the way you will visit the most important archaeological sites of Crete, Knossos and Phaestos, the impressive remains of the Minoan civilization which flourished about 4000 years ago. In addition you will have the chance to relax by the beach, taste the local food in the numerous tavernas and restaurants, but mostly just immerse yourself in Cretan hospitality.
This tour is of moderate difficulty. It is created for recreational cyclists; however, you must have a standard/good level of fitness to feel comfortable. The daily distance is around 50km (check daily program) and the daily total climb averages no more than 600m with the exception of one day (860m). Of course in case you will need help, we provide 24h telephone support so we will step in and help.
For those seeking a more “in depth” Cretan experience, the tour is also offered with 2 nights at each waypoint. For these extra days we offer a variety of cycling routes, boat trips, daily excursions and various other alternatives.
Personalised programs can be created for you at an additional charge depending on the number of participants, duration and component parts of the tour.
