Exploring Club company was established in 1991 in Herakleion of Crete having as its primary goal the organisation of an excursion of many days by Jeep; the round of Crete in seven days. Grand Safari, as the programme was called, aimed at making familiar to the visitors of the island another, unknown world only a few kilometres far from the most frequented beaches and cosmopolitan resorts of the island. A world, built of stony villages deep in the massifs, and many kilometres of beautiful landscape and deep gorges, which end up to stunning beaches with crystal clear water of the Libyan Sea, surrounding them.
Since 1995 the company has changed its name in Exploring Club – Outdoor Activities expanding its activities by organizing one-day excursions, as well not only for solitary clients but also for organized groups and Congresses. The activities of the company are separated in three main categories.
First, the Jeep Safari excursions with two programmes that take place daily: for solitary clients from May 1 until October 30, and Jeep Safari with many programmes and many variations (treasure hunt, distances book, artistries and others) for organised groups and Congresses.
Second, it is a global originality, which looks like a Safari but it is carried out through special small two-persons Scooter vehicles and it is called Scootopia. It is a very pleasant excursion which begins with adaptation course on how to drive a Scooter and it goes on with a distance of 60 kilometres in the north-central part of the island. The excursion takes place daily from the beginning of May until the middle of October.
Third, it is the category of excursions by mountain bikes, which are carried out in the plateau Lassithi every day for solitary customers from May 1 until October 30, with very low degree of difficulty, whereas it is addressed to all the clients regardless of age.
We wait for you to meet with us all the unknown sides of Crete.
