This half day trip will show you the many sides of Crete including local history, culture, untouched nature and breathtaking views, and gives you the freedom to enjoy the rest of your day in the way you prefer.
Meet your tour guide in Agia Pelagia. After a short theoretical and practical quad driving lesson, you will head out in a small group towards the mountains, on lonely tracks away from main traffic and in the midst of the most beautiful nature. Riding by a beautiful cliff path along the sea, you will reach the abandoned ghost village of Achlada. Find out more about the background of the village, the ancient and traditional Cretan way of life and share a special personal moment with the three last and only inhabitants of this village.
After the visit you will continue through the mountains on the old donkey roads until you reach Fodele, a traditional Cretan village, which is also called the "village of the oranges" and is the birthplace of the famous painter "El Greco". Here you can explore Crete’s culture and marvel at its local handicrafts. You may enjoy 20 - 25 minutes of free time before heading back to Agia Pelagia.
