Our Quad trips offer you a well mixed ride over dirt tracks and mountain roads, providing you with plenty of time to see the beautiful Cretan nature around you. Together with one of our experienced off-road drivers you will follow farmer paths through olivefields, dirt- and mountainroads. Our route is not set in stone, but might vary due to weather and road conditions and the experiance of the drivers. You will reach a height of 620m above sea level, with amazing views over the backlands of Rethymno, Potamos Dam, Psiloritis, the White Mountains and our amazing coastline.
Explore the wild nature of Crete
Our most popular morning tour takes you to the edge of the Amari Valley and offers you magnificent views over the lake Potami from high above. On our trip we do not stop at one specific site for a visit, instead, we allow for many shorter photo stops.
We will drive our quads amidst the wild nature of Rethymno and if we are lucky we should spot some griffon vultures that can often be sighted in the area we are passing through. With a wingspan of 2.6m and a body length of up to 1m, these birds are the largest to be found on Crete. From the high edge of the Prasses Gorge, we drop down in altitude towards the Potami dam for a full circuit around the lake.
Right next to the lake we will stop at a small kaffinio where you can get a refreshment and visit the toilet. Afterwards we head up to high above the lake again, to reach our trip’s highest altitude of 620m. Crossing the peak, we will then follow the other side of the mountain back to our departure point.
Drive off into the sunset!
Our second tour offers you a relaxing ride into the sunset. This is a evening safari (47Km) and ends with amazing views of the sunset over Rethymno.
Via narrow roads, dirt paths and asphalt, our leader will guide you to fantastic viewpoints high above the Potami damn and Rethymno. From the high edge of the Prasses Gorge, we might spot some griffon vultures.
We will stop for an appetizer and enjoy the local taste of Raki at the highest restaurant in the Rethymno area while we enjoy the sunset.
After the snacks we will slowly make our way down to the departure point.
