Wat je gaat doen

We meet in Kissamos, where we'll get you acquainted with our electric MTBs.

We'll cycle along the scenic coastal roads to the village of Kaliviani, giving you a chance to get used to the bikes.

Then we have about an hour's cycle, on an unpaved road, to Balos. With the electric motor assisting your pedaling even the hilly sections are a breeze! You can enjoy the fantastic scenery as we fly along, and spot various local wildlife: goats, lizards, birds of prey and cormorants out on the water sometimes. We'll have a few stops to admire the views, see some secret giant fossils and explain a little about the history of the area.

Once we arrive at the end of the road, we'll walk down a path to Balos beach (about 30min walk) for a swim or to enjoy the beach and the views. It is quite a steep walk. Alternatively, if you prefer not to walk down to the beach there is a canteen where we stop. So there is the option to get a drink or snack and explore the paths along the ridge. Then we'll return to Kissamos using the E-bikes.

We can do this experience any morning during the summer months (May to October). If no availability is shown please ask me!

We also offer other experiences including nature hikes (gorges & coastal), e-bike rental & tours, kayak day trips, cultural trips and swimming/snorkelling tours. There are more details on our site - Fit in Crete - or contact me.

I grew up in the UK and moved to Greece in 2008 with my family. I worked for a number of years in turtle conservation and always had a passion for the environment, nature and an active lifestyle. Together with my Italian husband Manu, we started a business offering different active experiences, like hiking, cycling, swimming and cultural tours. We seek out hard-to-find places to be able to share these hidden gems with visitors. We have both cycled for transport and to explore for years, and now we have 5 E-MTB's to share with visitors.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will cycle past the site of the famous "Trachilos footprints" and stop in Kaliviani to admire secret giant fossils embedded in the rocks. At Balos we'll take you to the perfect spot to admire the 360° view of the beach, before walking down to the beach for a swim.

We also have other routes available to cycle on e-bikes - ask me to find out more!

This was a great way to explore and visit the gorgeous coastline in the vicinity and on the way to Balos beach.Manu was a very cordial and relaxed guide whose understanding and knowledge of the locality and its marine life made the trip all the more enjoyable.The E-bikes are a joy to ride and make light work of the steep inclines along the way.The dip and swim in sea was most welcome once we arrived at our destination.All in all a fabulous introduction to the hinterland of Kissamos particularly if it’s your first visit as it was in my case.
