Discover wild and authentic Crete with off-road motorbike or 4 X 4
We provide a paper road book or files for your Tripy. For those who are not followers of the Road book, it is better to choose the formula 'accompanied by Yannis'.
Medical assistance will be provided by our friend Dr. Frédéric Mathéi, who is an orthopedic surgeon. In case of serious injury, Crete has good doctors and many hospitals
For bikers, upon your arrival, we will take your luggage in charge and deposit them at the various hotels during the raid. We advise you to bring with you a backpack with your basic tools, water, ... and, if necessary, a bathing suit, bath towel, and a pair of sunglasses. Please note that for you to eat or drink in Crete, there are mini-markets and kafenions or taverns in all the villages except, if it is an abandoned or ruined village :-).
For your flight, several airlines fly to Heraklion, usually from Brussels. If you decide, do not delay, because in September, we are still in tourist season ....
Repatriation insurance, such as 'Europ Assistance', is mandatory. And, since Crete is part of Europe, all the insurances of this type cover this magnificent island. Ask your broker
The Kriti Raid is not a competition, the stages are not too technical, nor too long (between 150 and 180Km), so take the time to discover this wonderful island.
In the event of a mechanical breakdown with the rental vehicles, the renters will intervene quickly. If it's your own bike, plan a minimum of spare parts and what to do with your basic maintenance. If necessary, we will have a mechanic who can intervene. For the 4 X 4 personal in Crete, there are many independent multi-brand garages.
For bikers who want to be autonomous, it is better to have a basic tool kit with what to repair a flat tire + a first aid kit.
And finally, note that an SUV organization will close every day hiking.
To stay, we privileged the authenticity and fled the big tourist zones. But it does not mean that you will stay on a roof under the stars as in the hippie era ... Yannis, knows better than anyone his island and you can trust him.
The rooms are sometimes scattered in the village of step, but never far from each other. They are all equipped with a private bathroom with WC and for the most demanding, there is always air conditioning in the room.
For those who choose the long formula, we will end the adventure in the beautiful village of Mochlos. This is the village where Yannis and Anne live. Marc and his wife Marie have been there for a good part of the year since they fell in love with the place. For those who knew him, it was also the favorite village of our late Alain Fieu. Many years ago, Alain organized TT motorcycle rides from Mochlos.
