About
Connect with rural Crete in a way you couldn’t if cocooned in a hire car on this ATV adventure from Hersonnisos. After instructions, roar into Crete’s mountains on your ATV to explore off-road trails, cross riverbeds and fruit orchards; and visit villages and churches—all as your guide proffers observations on local life and nature. A liqueur tasting, snacks, and equipment are included so there’s no need to bring anything.

Explore Crete’s mountains and villages on an ATV tour from Hersonissos
Dig deeper into rural Crete than you could if alone or sealed in a hire car
Take off-road trails, discover hamlets and churches; ride by rivers, and more

What to expect
We start at 09:30am from our main office in Hersonissos. After the instructions from the very professional guide Andreas on how to operate and use the Quads ,we will go straight to the mountain. Using the very small road (no traffic) so you can try steering the Quad, accelerating, and braking. Our journey towards the beautiful traditional villages of Koutouloufari, Piscopiano and old Hersonissos. Then continue onto the nearby mountains toward Lasithi plateau. Just before Potamies village, we will drive through small riverbeds (and if we are lucky – also through water) and pass by small local gardens of orange, lemon, apples, pears, almond and walnuts trees, plus grapes and olive groves, smelling the beautiful aroma of the many different herbs of the famous Cretan mountains. You’ll be able to listen to the sound of the millions of little tsitsikia (insects) which they will fly next to us all the way (they are not biting and not dangerous at all). We will drive up to 400m. height driving  through a hunting area, visit few small churches and have the opportunity to see stables of sheep and goats on the way to traditional Karouzanos village, inhabited by on 15 people. Here you can have a Greek café, drink, or ice cream, rest and of course make some photos in this fantastically unique place. Then we will drive up to 600 m. height towards Askous village. There we will have the opportunity to see the beautiful view of Lyttos and Kasteli area from the top. Halfway, we will start the entertaining downhill route from the beautiful little church to Askous village. We will stop to taste the authentic Cretan tsikoudia (raki) and share some tasty and pure snacks that traditionally accompany this drink in this part of Crete. Then we continue downhill to the Aposelemis dam and view Sfentili village (now underwater). This is the faster and extremely part of the tour at a place looks like you are in jungle, until we reach the Panagias monastery. Then we will drive back, about 14:30 Should take: Driving license, sun glasses, sun protection, small bottle of water and you  can buy the GoXplore bandana for the dusty moments, or the special offer with the GoPro film.!!!!!

Quad Safari with our guide Andreas
Yesterday we did the safari quad tour with the guide Andreas.
We started at 9 o‘clock at the Go xplore Office and the tour tooked about 5 hours.

Andreas is very kind and explained us how to use the Quad and what we would be expect.

We drove on the road and off the road. It was so much fun. We drove trough the mountains and saw wild animals.

For lunch did we visit a traditional greek Restaurant and tried typical greek food.

All in all it was amazing and we would do it again!

Nice safari quad
Sep 2020 • Friends
This quad safari was great and the Andreas is the guide at the top! 👌🏽
The ride is exotic and the beautiful setting. We were able to cross some villages and eat some very good local specialties. I recommend this safari to all tourists passing through Crete.

Nothing to say about the organization, departure in the morning at 9:00 and return in the afternoon at 15:00. The manager is very nice and kind and did not hesitate to help us on different excursions.

Great day out
Glad we booked to go on this quad bike trip. Great adventure and Andreas was a great tour guide. Had a typical Greek lunch at a lovely quaint restaurant.
Be prepared to get very dusty but we'll worth it 😃

Must do it
Aug 2020 • Couples
I like that I saw another part of the island, other than the sea and the beach. Many pitoresque vews, small villages in the Mountains and it lasted like 5 hours. Lunch was included at a tavern in the Mountains, we were served raki and some traditional dish, very good. Andreas is very friendly, helpful and also funny. Also, he films while on his ATV so You have memories for ever on camera. Glad I did this, I recommend to everyone on the island. And the views....omg the views,especially when coming home, were amazing.

A day to remember
I have gone quad biking before but it was on fields and mountains and this was a different experience. I was mindful to the idea that I wouldn't like it because the thought of the heat and off road like that was alien to me but, as soon as you got to the reception you are greeted to a friendly face the forms are quick and easy to do. you are able to pick the helmet most suited to you. all and all it was a lovely day out and a experience to remember I whole heartedly recommended that if you come to crete you should come here.

We had a wonderful time on this ATV tour. We saw so many beautiful views from up in the mountains and also got to enjoy a delicious lunch at the top. The guide was very helpful for those in the group who were not used to using the quads and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves and felt safe.
