Our team has more than 10 mountain guides, speleologists, mountaineers, all of them being highly qualified, with lots of precious experiences and an immense passion for nature and the environment. We are ready to guide you in the paths we have explored and distinguished in the Cretan land and around Greece.
We not only have many excursions to propose to you, but we also suggest that you give a go to more extreme ones, such as diving, mountain biking, canoe kayak, potholing etc. at different degrees of difficulty and in various regions. Ask us about our trekking and extreme sports excursions and combine them with thematic tours to get the most out of your holiday trips!
