Arrive and take arranged taxi (out of pocket expense) to the stables in Avdou where you will have time for a swim before orientation and description of the ride. Dinner and overnight at the equestrian hotel with swimming pool and restaurant which will be home base for the week.
The facilities during the Crete Star Trail are some of the nicest I’ve stayed at. Important things like the bathroom having both a tub and a shower, and good water pressure made it really comfortable. And that had to be the cleanest, best lit and most organized tack room I think I have EVER seen anywhere!!! Of course, the hosts were perfect at what they do. I really need to stress how good the food was. It was probably the best food we had in Greece.
