Crete Outdoor Activities
Get active on holiday

There is plenty to do in Crete, you can of course sunbathe and relax on your holiday or you can get out and explore what Crete has to offer.

The great Cretan Outdoors is unbelievable, filled with stunning countryside, flora and fauna and some unique wildlife.  The best way to see what Crete has to offer is by car, bike or walking through the countryside.

This guide aims to cover the most popular ways of getting around the island, and each page comes with videos, pictures and prices where possible.  If you have anything to add to any guide then please feel free to get in contact with Holidays2Crete with extra information or pictures.

Crete Outdoors - Information

So you want to get out and explore the wonderful Cretan Outdoors?  Firstly why not go cycling through Lassithi Plateau visiting some traditional little villages along the way.  If you prefer a more relaxed pace of exploring you could try hiking through the routes provided in our guide.

If you need to cool down then what about choosing a dive into the sea surrounding Crete.  We have compiled a guide with videos on diving down to the reefs surrounding Crete including a WWII wreck of a German fighter plane.  The plane even though its been lying on the bottom of the sea for over 60 years is in very good condition and you can even see the machine gun lying on the sea floor with ammunition still loaded.

Now if you are thinking of taking a holiday in Crete for more extreme sports then you are not alone.  There are a wealth of extreme sports to get involved in, the first being bungee jumping from Aradaina bridge, the highest bridge in Crete.  If that's not enough for you why not try sky diving from 12,000 feet in a free fall or tandem jump with qualified instructors.

If you want to explore a little of Crete from the sky and soar with vultures then try paragliding from many take off spots around Crete with a qualified long serving instructor with his own fully licensed company.

Take a look at the videos and of course if you think you could do better then please send in your reviews of what to see and do and you will be featured on the Crete outdoors articles page and be credited with the article.

Road Map of Crete

If you explore Crete by foot, bike, car or by the air you will need a map of Crete.  To the right you can click on our map of Crete and download a full sized road map of Crete.  

The map is quite large and the full download is roughly 3MB so please be patient while the image downloads.
