It begins in Omalos, a plateau high in the mountains, then heads down to the sea passing the famous beach at Elafonissil, it then follows the west coast of Crete, passes through historical Chania and ends up in Rethymno.
This tour is of moderate difficulty and has been created for the recreational cyclist, however, you must have a standard/good level of fitness to feel comfortable. The daily distances are between 40 and 50km (check daily program) and the average daily climb is around 700m (with some exceptions). Of course, if you need help, we provide 24h telephone support so we will step in and provide all necessary assistance. On some days optional longer/harder routes are provided for the stronger cyclist.
For those seeking a more “in depth” Cretan experience, the tour is also offered with 2 overnights at each waypoint. For these extra days we suggest a variety of cycling routes, boat trips, daily excursions and various other alternatives.
Customized programs can be created for you at an additional charge depending on the number of participants, duration and component parts of the tour.
