Paths and Cultural Heritage
Making a decision on how to spend our vacation is an important one. So why should we choose wellbeing travel or tours in the first place? Good question!
Do any of these reasons sound familiar to you?
I want to travel with like-minded people.
I want to learn more about myself and my possibilities.
I’d love to travel, give something back, and be in service.
I wish to connect with other cultures and spiritual traditions.
I’m going through major life changes and could use clarity.
I have stress in my life and need to rest and be pampered.
I want to have Cretan experiences
I’ve read about.
I have heard so many things about Crete and I want to find out more.
We are looking forward to see you in Crete!
Travelling on foot also offers the opportunity to spend sufficient time at any given place, explore the local culture and reach inaccessible spots.
Walking tours at Agios Nikolaos Coastline is a great window into the colossal mountains, herb vegetation and ecological wonders while the forest trails of Katharo plateau are equally resplendent.
The area of Kato Mirabello centered around Agios Nikolaos, includes Elounda, Kalo Khorio, Kritsa and has the largest hotels of Lasithi Provence.
It is strategically positioned on the road network of Crete and it is an ideal starting point for daily excursions all around the island, by bus, by car or by motorbike.
But without a doubt the most beautiful tour will be the one on foot or by bike!
We want to include regarding of the Virtual assistant support in our Ecological and Gastronomical hike event and the Fam Trips.
Bikes are an ideal way of getting around in Crete, especially for casual cyclists, given the frequency of hills around here! That little extra help makes the difference between an enjoyable ride and an unforgiving climb, but the silent electric motor doesn’t spoil your connection to the beautiful natural surroundings
Faedra beach tip: Most of the guests select this establishment cause the 50% of their stay is outside of the hotel on the public crystal clear beach and #Askianos Greek restaurant so can interact with all that Crete island has to offer — a rarity for resorts in the area.
What better way to explore than on two wheels?
Spring, autumn or even winter is a beautiful time for bike riding in Crete. Roads are still quiet, the sun is shining, but it’s not yet overly hot. Flowers are bursting into bloom everywhere, and after this wet winter, the scenery is lovely and green. What better way to explore than on two wheels?
Faedra Beach and Martin Bikes in Crete offer both bike guided tours and accommodation. We can suggest interesting places/routes for you based on your interests, or help you plan a whole itinerary of different cycling routes for your stay in Crete.
We can also arrange delivery of bikes in Agios Nikolaos area, on request. It’s important to know that we are not always in the office, and have a limited number of bikes available (still waiting on a new shipment!).
So to avoid disappointment please get in touch at least a day or two before you want the bikes!

To not miss all these possibilities, be sure to hurry as the groups have few people for a more private experience.
The climate, mild, dry and sweet, without steep weather transitions throughout the year, is considered one of Europe’s most healthy. You can see green everywhere even in winter (thanks to the endless fields of olive trees). Spring projects the blooming almond trees among the dense vegetation with its diffused intoxicating elegant aroma, laying thick carpets of sour grass, bright red poppies, white lilies and many more wild flowers, covering fields and mountainsides, decorating ancient ruins, above the lacy coasts of the Cretan sea with the crystal clear water.
We provide our remote assistance so as to discover the most breathtaking nearby routes!

Every Faedra Beach section has a community team, with community managers who act as concierges. Whether it’s supplying you with toiletries in a time of need, or offering restaurant menu suggestions, a community manager is there to help.
There are 17 routes that we suggest, all of them have been designed so that you can reach easily and with safety the small paradises that are located far away from the busy roads, enjoying the view from the best spots, meeting on your way old chapels, archaeological sights and some of the most picturesque villages that are hidden all over the area of Kato Mirabello!
So get up and let’s hike! Or rent a mountain bike!
You will need nothing more than a pair of hiking shoes, a hat and a pair of sunglasses for the bright Cretan sun, a camera to capture all these unique moments and a water canteen to quench your thirst while you hike between the water springs and the villages.
Wherever you encounter a fenced-in field, just open the door and pass through but please close it again.
Also in all of our hiking routes we have an application for easy navigation. We will additionally send you an information leaflet with many information about the cultural heritage, the next destination, the duration in hours (for hiking) or the kilometres (for bike riding) until the next station.
