Activity description

Discover the real Crete on two wheels with Quad Safari Peninsula! Meet fantastic people, eat delicious food, and learn what Cretan customs are all about! An adventure for all, family or friends, couples or lone wolves! Drive your way through breathtaking landscapes without a worry in the world…

Take this unique opportunity to explore a part of Crete not as a tourist, but as an explorer with a multilingual guide who’ll be there for you all the way, explaining the mysteries behind the ghost city of Achlada and the traditional village of Folede. You’ll even get a chance to speak to the last three residents of the ghost village, but don’t worry, it won’t be spooky!

You’ll have an initiation course in quad driving, and then you’ll be out in the wild, remote, and natural roads where traffic doesn’t exist; except when it comes to sheep, of course. The sea and the mountains await you!

Moniteur très sympa, des coins de vue à couper le souffle, l'activité est passer très vite malheureusement mais bon il en faut pour tout le monde. Je recommande cela, car pour avoir fait aussi de la Jeep en 4×4 ce n'était pas pareille.
