Description

Our outing begins by getting picked up from the hotels in Hersonissos and taken to the quad bike base. After a safety briefing on learning all detailed instructions on operating your ATV, we start our adventure by visiting the Minoan Palace of Sarpedon, at the archaeological site of Malia. After a short pause, we leave the Palace, and driving through beautiful landscapes and olive groves, we meet an old watermill, which is one of the best-preserved in Crete. Heading south, we will experience a high adrenaline off-road ride, and Juddering down dirt tracks and muddy paths, we will discover the secrets and the unique beauty of Crete's countryside. Our next stop is the old Monastery of Saint George Vrahassotis, a monument of religious and archaeological importance, which dates back to the 16th century. You can admire its wonderful relief, depicting Saint George killing the dragon, at the south end of the temple, feed the wild sheep of the area, and climb the biggest and oldest (over 900 years) Oak tree on the island, for some beautiful photos.
Our next highlight will be the “Vasilakis family” olive oil factory, producing olive oil since 1865. You will enjoy a 50’ guided tour, learning the secrets of how olive oil is produced. Our visit will be completed with an “extra virgin olive oil” tasting experience.
A delicious lunch will be served, in a local tavern in the charming village of Vrahasi, before we reach our last stop, the beach of Potamos in Malia, where you will have time for a refreshing swim.
