Full description
The start point is west of Heraklion from the beach of Ammoudara and head south towards the hinterland of Crete. After leaving the urban area behind us, entering a rural area full of vineyards and olive groves. On one side of the route people can see the holy mountain of Yioukta and on the other the highest mountain of Crete, Psiloritis. The first village on the way is Gournes and after a few kilometers is the village of Athanati. The road becomes uphill until the almost uninhabited village of Xirolia. Riding west and after a few kilometers the group will reach the capital of wine in Crete, the village of Dafnes. Here the well-known wine festival takes place every year in July. In this area there are many wineries that produce the best wines of Crete. Here the group of the bikers will taste 4 different wines, accompanied by Cretan cheese, rusks and olives. After the tasting the bikes will be left there and the group will go by car back to the starting point. This e-bike tour is possible to be done by everybody who is able to ride a bike. It is 24 km long and the net riding time ist about 90 minutes. If it has rained recently, then the route will change, because the previous route has some dirt roads and there will be mud.

I genuinely cannot recommend this enough. You’re taken from the busy streets of the city out into the beautiful hills outside Heraklion, where there are vineyards as far as the eye can see. Adam (tour guide) stops regularly for refreshments and snacks and points out areas of interest. From here you travel through some small villages to a local vineyard. If you’re in the area and looking for something fun to do I definitely recommend this. We saw more of Crete today than we ever have and get to speak to some local people and really learn about the culture. Also, the bikes are E-Bikes with various modes to suit all levels of fitness. So don’t let that put you off. Thanks Adam for an unforgettable day. Callum & Chloe UK
