Mountain biking

The fastest and most environmentally friendly mode of exploring Crete is by mountain bike. Hub Mtb Adventures runs guided mountain bike excursions to Lasithi Plateau, which sits 900 metres above sea level and boasts breathtaking views of rural Crete. They have a variety of tours, which is great as it means they’re accessible to tourists with all levels of cycling ability and fitness. Professional guides lead the tours, whose sheer enthusiasm makes the venture even more worthwhile.

The Hub’s epic routes will have you travelling off-road through the Greek wilderness, to secluded, rural parts of Crete. Continue to bike through natural terrain and up into the mountains for stunningly beautiful views and that great feeling of accomplishment after an energetic day’s riding. With the changing scenery and growing wildlife, there’s always something new to see, as each ride is different from the next.
