The magic of Crete lies in its natural beauty majestic, sweeping mountains and emerald-blue seas.

Lyrical bells of grazing sheep and the aromas of wild herbs add to the Mediterranean magic. With its unique history, friendly people, and natural beauty, Crete is indeed a land of legends and an ideal cycling destination.

We explore the old city of Heraklion with its Venetian remains and visit the Archeological Museum to see fabulous Minoan pottery jewelry. Here we will relive the reign of King Minos.

The Extreme Crete tour differs from the Land of Zorba tour in intensity and challenge. Extreme applies to challenging rides, as well as the extreme exhilaration and exuberance one may experience. Climbs take riders to a new level of beauty with sparkling seas. The rugged island interior offers a unique appreciation for unspoiled regions. We take you to remote places the average tourist does not visit.
