QUAD SAFARI PENINSULA
THE LOCAL OPTION FOR NATURE- CULTURE - CUSTOMS
WHO IS IT FOR:
* Those who search the "different kind of experience"
* Those who are interested in local history, culture and customs
* Nature and off-road lovers
* Those who like small group travel (max. 10 Quads)
Starting at the Peninsula Hotel and Spa in Agia Pelagia, the guides will give you a theoretical introduction and a small driving practise, before you take the adventure in your hands and the quads on the road.
Lonely tracks away from main traffic and in the midst of the most beautiful nature take you to a beautiful cliff path along the sea and later into the heights of Achlada.
Here you enjoy a breathtaking view over the surrounding area, before you continue to the long time ago and abruptly 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. Enjoy a walk through this village which is not accessible by any other means.
You then continue, beginning in the heights of Achlada, passing in between the mountains in breathtaking natural surroundings to 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. Time for some shopping or a visit of the museum or its orthodox churches is of course considered.
For those of you who like it relaxed there is the possibility to enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice from the local oranges in the calm.
You return to the hotel at 13h00, so you can take your time to enjoy your lunch. (Alternatively there is the possibility to have lunch in a local restaurant and try Greek Meze – a variety of Greek specialties served on small plates to try.)
