Hiking and cycling
The inland of Agios Nikolaos offers opportunities for a wide range of outdoor activities. Its excellent continental location combines different trails for hiking or cycling. Most trails are marked, while the natural landscape of the municipality has a network of more than 100 routes. Visitors have the opportunity to see the wild nature of Crete as they explore the vast gorges. For nature lovers, there are paths that lead to remarkable mountain peaks and evergreen forests.
Every year thousands of visitors walk on the magnificent trails found all over the island. However, safety should be your first priority. To this end, we urge you to always use the appropriate equipment (clothes, shoes) and to always bring water with you. Don’t overestimate your abilities and skills. The best way to enjoy the proposed routes is to get in touch with one of the experienced guides in the area who will guide you safely along the route and help you enjoy it to the fullest.
