Unforgettable experiences and activities in Heraklion

Hiking:The best way for a visitor to explore Crete is to walk beyond the point that a car can reach, follow paths from the Minoan era, smell the herbs in the numerous Cretan canyons, climb the bare peaks of the tallest mountains, and be rewarded for the hard work with the serenity of the soul that will be offered to him by the veneration of the deep blue of the Cretan and the Libyan Sea. In the region of Heraklion there are plenty of choices among excellent mapped routes with varying levels of difficulty.

Sailing Trip to Dia island:Take a cool dive into the crystal waters of Dia island, go on a romantic sailing at sunset, enjoy a fun-fishing experience with your children, walk along the beautiful trail of cedars, relax in the quiet small bay of Snt George overlooking Heraklion! Dia, the small island opposite Heraklion. Environmentally protected, with a shape like a giant lizard, with turquoise, extremely clean sea water and a magic seabed, with a long history as a minoan ancient port, Dia is surely one of the top attractions in Crete and a sailing day trip is the only way to enjoy it!

Horse Riding:The Riding Academy of Crete is an official sports club, member of the Hellenic Equestrian Federation which has been running since 1979 in order to achieve and cultivate love towards horses.
