Program:

Mountain Biking

Location: Kalyves

Duration: 3 Hours including safety briefing

Open to all levels of ability. We have three trips available. Our basic tour will take you out of the village and climb to see the unique site of Kumos. There are interesting buildings and sculptures, a small museum and a place to get a refreshing drink. Our second tour will again take you out of the village to a small church shaded by Plane trees. You will then wander through orange and lemon groves, pass through a small river and onwards until we find the road to Stylos. Here we will visit an ancient church which legend has it has the fossil of an angel in the grounds!!! Take a look and you decide. We will then stop for refreshments before returning to Kalyves.

Snorkeling

Location: Stavros & Koutalas

Duration: 3 Hours including safety briefing

Open to all levels of ability. A traditional holiday past time, but our guide can show you some of the best locations that Western Crete has to offer. Secret bays with interesting coastal formations and all kinds of fish to be spotted.

Kayaking

Location: Kalyves

Duration: 3 Hours including safety briefing

Open to all levels of ability. We use the new Sit on Top style of kayak which is more stable and easier to get back on board should you fall off those traditional kayaks.

There are two trips available. Trips are half a day in duration going from the harbor across the beach to explore up the river that runs through Kalyves.

Alternatively we can leave the harbor and travel round the coast to the East where we can explore a hidden beach and learn about the legend of the Arab Pirate Galleon that came to raid the small church closed to the beach.

The local priest preformed a miracle that saved the church and left a monument that we can still see today.

You will also have a chance to jump from the cliffs into the clear blue Mediterranean Sea, before going on to explore “Rabbit Island”

Coasteering

Location: Kalathas

Duration: 3 Hours including safety briefing

Open to all levels of ability. Coasteering came about through climbers in Wales scrambling around sea cliffs to discover new climbs. Then they decided that it was quiet good fun just to do the scrambling along the rocks at sea level bit. Add to that a wet suit, and buoyancy aid and jumping of cliffs into the sea and exploring hidden bays, then there you have it coasteering.  A popular activity with great fun for all.

Climbing

Location: Kalathas & Therisso

Duration: 3 Hours including safety briefing

Open to all levels of ability, a traditional outdoor activity. Involves climbing on an attached rope up single pitch climbs. The climb can be chosen to suit the level of ability of the client.
