THE OTHER SIDE OF CRETE

High mountains, deep canyons and countless kilometers of coastline

Crete is famous for its exceptional beaches, unique scenery, rich history and wild night life. Nevertheless, Crete offers a multitude of alternative options throughout the year. The Cretan landscape offers the most of it.

High mountains, deep canyons and countless kilometers of coastline, are the natural terrain where sports activities such as mountaineering, climbing, trekking and more, find a place for training and entertainment. Alternative Crete can give you the opportunity to organize your excursion to Crete with plenty of options concerning these activities. Even those who are familiar with a particular activity may be unaware of their locations and possibilities on the island.

This is the reason we created Alternative Crete, an online outdoor activities agency focused on alternative tourism. Our team is well trained and qualified as mountain leaders. Our passion for the natural landscape and its exploration, brought us together. The term alternative has a specific meaning here. It does not suggest unknown sites. It does not promote the usual holiday mode. However, it highlights the invisible aspects of Crete that we are all looking for, the aspects that fit into the alternative part of ourselves.
