Crete is a Mediterranean jewel. It is the largest and of the most popular of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island of the Mediterranean Sea. Crete forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry and music). It was once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe. Laying to the south edge of the Aegean Sea, it is considered as the most southern point of Europe.

Crete is isolated from mainland Europe, Asia, and Africa, and this is reflected in the diversity of the fauna and flora that surround the island. As a result the fauna and flora of Crete have many clues to the evolution of species. There are no animals that are dangerous to humans on the island. Mythology says Hercules wanted to honor the birthplace of Zeus by removing all "harmful" and "poisonous" animals from Crete. Later, Cretans believed that the island was cleared of dangerous creatures by the Apostle Paul, through his use of exorcisms and blessings.

Crete is mountainous, and its character is defined by a high mountain range crossing from west to east, formed by 5 different groups of mountains: the White Mountains at 8,045 ft., the Idi Range (Psiloritis) at 8,058 ft., Kedros at 5,830 ft., the Dikti Mountains at 7,047 ft. and Thripti at 4,885 ft. These mountains lavished Crete with valleys, rivers, caves and a number of gorges that create spectacular beauty and magnificent landscapes to discover.

Perhaps no other island in the world encompasses such a vast variety of images and experiences. Here, one will find fantastic, un-spoilt beaches with crystal-clear waters facing the Libyan Sea; immense wildlife and mountains with super twisty routes; and not to mention the unique Cretan people with their tremendous hospitality who enjoy amazing local cuisine and evening entertainment. In Crete, travellers will enjoy a unique riding experience, through some of the most dramatic scenery and several untouched villages inhabited by long-mustached, rakia -drinking Cretans.

With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, with a coastline of over 650miles  (1.050 km), with more than 3,100miles (5.000km) of road network and one of the world lowest crime rates, Crete has all the assets to characterize it as the motorbike paradise of Europe. It is easy to understand why millions of tourists arrive (again ‘n again) to Crete every year and most of them fall in love with the food, the lifestyle, the weather, the landscape and many of them begin to consider moving to Crete full-time.

Greece's largest island is wrapped with 5,000 years of glorious history and spectacular scenery. It provides an unparalleled living experience. Come live a full week around Crete on a motorcycle – you will create one of your most memorable experiences.
