  • Description

    Whether you’re a first-time mountain biker or a skilled thrill-seeker, embarking on this biking adventure through Mohos - Sfedili dum and Avdou, it’s more than certain that this tour will leave you with the most beautiful everlasting memories!
    Biking in Lassithi Mountains, in one of the most awe-inspiring geological phenomenon on the planet, truly is a once in a lifetime experience that you don’t want to miss.

    In the village of Mochos itself, you can find houses and traditional alleys which date back to the 16th century. Famous churches with old bysantine icons such as Archangel Michael, Virgin Mary (the old central church of the village, where the iconostasis dates to 1820), Saint George, Saint Panteleimon and "Evangelismos of Theotokos" (dedicated to the Mother of Jesus) which is todays' central church in the square. Here you can find three Byzantine icons from the mid 15th century and a small copper icon.

    The village is also named Capetanochori or Captain's village in respect of the many leaders and revolutionaries who fought against the Ottoman rule until late in the nineteenth century, and for their bravery during the Second World War.

    The village sits just 15 km from the beach, but is a lifetime away from the tourist playgrounds and nightclubs. This is a place to seek peace and quiet, healthy food and the outdoors. Dotted around are fruit trees such as apricots, oranges and tangerines, and the silver-grey of olive groves. Even more exotic fruit such as kiwis grow here, and organic vegetable gardens thrive.
