For several years we happily work together with a small family business renting good cars.
You can pick up and return the car at Heraklion airport, Heraklion city or port.

Public transport

Avdou is not easy reachable by bus. Only twice a week (monday and friday) a bus drives in between Heraklion and the Lassithi Plateau. Your bus stop is Avdou.
Departure from Heraklion at 14:15 pm. and departure from Lassithi Plateau at 5:45 am.
There is also a regular bus service in between Heraklion and Hersonissos. In the summer time, every half hour.
We can organize a transfer from Hersonissos (bus station, Spar Supermarket) for 25 euro, one way.
Also for traveling by bus from Agios Nikolaos to Hersonissos (regular bus service) we can meet at the bus station at the Spar supermarket.

Far enough inland to experience the real Greece,
meet the locals and their culture,
far enough to avoid the mass tourism.
Still close enough to the coastal area,
an easy drive to the beach, shops and tourists facilities.
