The "Mega-Trail" by Thripthi after Kavousi is now completed and has already been x-times busy. For good bikers this downhill is a challenge and endless fun at the same time.
Almost 900 meters with deep, narrow turns, tricky edges, heels... with unique view down to Kavousi, Tolos Beach and across to Agios Nikolaos and Elounda.
Two similar, slightly shorter trails are in preparation for next season, once in Istro and the other in the south near the Sarakino canyon.
This fall we have significantly expanded down the upper section of the trail after Istro. Now also exists in the more comfortable levels the opportunity to ride from a moderate Trail.
Very good news for road cyclists: the new highway from Agios Nikolaos to Istro has now been completed and opened to traffic. So now the entire "old" coastal road to Istro over virtually car free. Nice for road bike trips in the pine forests of Prina and for all tours to south and east!
We cannot believe it but next season will be our twentieth! 20 years Crete!
We want to say “thank you” to all our guests, friends, employees and partners… Without you all we would not have been here for 20 years!
We look forward to seeing you again in the beautifully situated Hotel Sunlight on the enchanting bay of Mirabello.
Our team awaits for you
