Agia Pelagia: Quad Safari-Family Tour

1. Agia Pelagia: Quad Safari-Family Tour

Begin the tour at the Peninsula Resort and Spa with a short theoretical introduction and a quad driving lesson before the adventure begins. Follow a beautiful off-road cliff path along the sea and into the heights of Achlada away from traffic and in the midst of the most beautiful nature the area has to offer. Enjoy breathtaking views over Agia Pelagia until reaching Heraklion, then continue to the ancient and abruptly abandoned ghost village of Achlada.  Find out more about the background of the village and the traditional Cretan way of life and share a special personal moment with the last two remaining inhabitants of the village. Stroll through this otherwise inaccessible village at leisure. From the heights of Achlada, pass in between the mountains surrounded by breathtaking nature before continuing to Fodele, a traditional Cretan village, also called the village of the oranges and birthplace of the famous painter El Greco.  Explore Crete’s culture and marvel at its local handicrafts. Take some time for shopping and a visit to the museum or to the village’s orthodox churches. Sit back and enjoy a famous freshly squeezed orange juice made from the local orange trees for a more relaxing experience. Return to the hotel at 1.00 p.m., just in time for lunch.

What people are saying about Agia Pelagia

For us it was the first time on a quad! The guides were nice and involved the group a lot! In addition to the tour in the mountains and inland, the beauty of the tour is that we went down and explored ancient villages whose history they explained to us! At the end of the tour there is the possibility to have photos and videos (bring a key in advance to get them for free, otherwise you have to buy it at 10)

It was truly an unforgettable experience! First time on a quad bike for me and my fiancée, luckily we had a guide who immediately put us at ease with the vehicle and the group (4 couples in total). A three-hour journey (we chose the one from 6:15 pm to 9:15 pm) through the mountain roads to discover the ghost village, with breathtaking views at sunset. Really recommended !!

We had a great afternoon during this excursion thanks to Stan and his offbeat humor as well as his professionalism. We really enjoy the quads and there are very beautiful landscapes. Good value for money. Nothing to say, go for it!

Such a fun experience! Would definitely recommend. Loved the trails/roads we took and drove past some of the most beautiful spots. Awesome guide as well!

Many discoveries and sensations! Guides passionate about their country, I recommend 100%
