3. Kayaking

Paddling in Crete is somehow unique. With an outstanding landscape and lively sea conditions, sea kayaking is at its best.

With a large fleet of boats (singles and doubles) and multiple different models, we got a true sea kayak for every body type.

If you are not an experienced paddler or never paddled before why not joining in any of our coaching sessions? We got even pool sessions to learn the Eskimo Roll!

No matter if you are interested in a kayak trip or a coaching session please get in touch with the reception to ask more details.

4. Jeep Safari

The jeep safari is driving 4x4 vehicles on forest trails, with the necessary accompaniment of professional drivers. The mountains of Crete are a great opportunity for those who like adventure and off-road driving. We drive through the western side of eastern Crete Dikti or the Lassithi Mountains, a range with many peaks, the highest being the anonymous '2148'. The well - known plateau of Lassithi (402 sq. km.) spreads out between the peaks. The river crossing, the route on forest roads, visits to houses, monasteries and all the attractions that are on the way, with a variety of routes in lush vegetation and breathtaking landscapes provide a unique experience in a place where the mountain meets the sea ,the story of the legend and the culture with tradition.
