Outdoor Activities

 Sea kayaking






Discovery  getaways
in the Amari region and the south coast of Rethymnon

--
We offer multiple options for excursions and discovery escapades from the Wild Nature Eco Lodge. You can take advantage of our offerings by:
-- participating in the activities offered by the specialized agency of Wild Nature (see adjacent column on the right)
-- organizing your daily schedule on your own, with hiking and bike rides in the surrounding nature. In this case, we will provide plenty of information to guide your outings.

Hiking and cycling
 

--The green area between Meronas, Amari, and Assomathianos Kampos is a lovely countryside of great aesthetic value. Narrow dirt roads and old trails run throughout the area between crops, olive trees, and oak trees. 
--On foot or bicycle, you can easily explore these easy trails, discover the old Byzantine churches in the area, and enjoy your picnic in beautiful shady spots.

Mountain trekking
 

--Having explored all the mountains around the Amari province, and knowing every path leading to the high peaks, we offer a series of climbs that cater to every kind of trekker. Such are the multiple climb-routes leading to Klastris, Mygia, Modi, Spathi and the top Timios Stavros (2456m) of Mount Psiloritis, the climb to the top of Mount Kedros (1777m), and the climb to Mounts Soros (1182m), Samitos (1013), Papoura (1136m) and Panaori (1087).
--Contact us for various mountain trekking programs, ranging from 1 to 7 days.

Canyon and river trekking
 

--The canyons of the region of Amari are very interesting natural habitats because of their diverse vegetation, their unique microclimate (wet and cool), and wild life that finds refuge there. They are also shorter and shallower than other canyons in Crete, giving you the full experience of a canyon trek in a short time.
--Among these canyons the most important are Smiliano on the southern foothills of Mt Samitos, Patsos gorge west of Potami dam, and the splendid gorge of Platania, on the western slopes of Mt Psiloritis.
--On the southern side of the Amari valley stands the impressive Platis River gorge, where you can see a large number of griffon vulture nests in the vertical walls. A little farther south - near the south coast – you can venture into a fantastic river trek, across the famous gorges of Frati, Kourtaliotiko, and Preveli. Although these canyons are located off-site from Amari, they are only a short drive away and easy to visit from the Eco-Camp.
--We invite you to experience these treks in the safest and most enjoyable way, as we are familiar with the specifics of these gorges and have guided hundreds of hikers across their narrow walls. Various exploration programs are at your disposal, ranging from 1 to 7 days.

Corporate events
 

--A series of outdoor team-building activities are available within and around the camp for incentive groups and participants of conferences. The main theme of the activities is being active in nature and developing a collective, collaborative spirit among groups. The highlight of the day is either a barbecue or an original picnic lunch in nature. For details and suggestions, please contact us.
