We visited on Sunday and had such an amazing day. We were a group of 6, including two children (aged 13 and 10), and being new to archery we had a great introduction from Kirsten and Susanne, they took the time to explain how to use the equipment and we were able to take as much practice time as needed before heading to the 20-target trail.

There is a high focus on safety and it felt very reassuring being able to walk through the course. The place is kept immaculately clean and there are stunning views.

It was such a great experience, made better by the care and attention of Kirsten, Susanne Yiannis, and Zuri. We spent 4-5 hours there and it was great value for money. This is highly recommended as a day out.

If you love : nature oriented, relaxing and ability challenge activities, just go right now and have a beautiful moment.

We were instructed and advised by susanne who is very pedagogue and will make you laugh, which make you relaxed as much than bow shooting requires.

To all who come here in the futur : enjoy this unforgettable moment as much as you can.

I came in with 0 experience and had a very detailed introduction by Kirsten who is a very experienced and patient teacher. The selection of bows was impressive, gear in different sizes and levels were available. The parkour itself is very impressive due to the location, views, but also attention for detail. My partner who is a more experienced archer enjoyed it as much as I did. The hosts are very kind, generous, and interesting people. I enjoyed our cold beer and delightful conversation with them almost as much as a parkour itself. We visited the parkour as part of a hike, it definitely made it even more adventurous. Definitely worth a visit!

I hiked to the archery site by foot from Paleochora and was greeted by Suri, the super sweet dog, and then made friends with both her and the personnel. I was immediately assisted by Kirsten (one of the two lovely women that run the place) in finding the suitable equipment for me to borrow, and was totally satisfied and happy with it – very professional gear. Kirsten then proceeded to teach me archery technique from scratch in a simple, straight-forward, instinctive way, leaving me finding confidence and not overthinking things, but staying in my body. In her instructions she connected the mental and bodily approach, mindset and philosophy of archery into all aspects of life outside of just shooting with bow and arrow. Inspiring thoughts she was sharing! She was uplifting, positive, warm, honest, thoughtful and precise in her input and guidance. When she concluded that I was ready to proceed on my own, she let me off the parcour and let me explore my new brand passion of archery on my own, checking in on me every now and then. In the end she even gave me some cool special challenges. Kirsten gave me a lot of her time and focus and her guidance was professional, valuable and inspiring. The weather was perfect and it was such a magical afternoon on the hillside with this amazing view towards Paleochora through the Azogires Gorge. It is such a stunning location there!

I had so much fun that I couldn't stop shooting until the sun was sinking close toward the mountainside and it was time to pack up the things. I couldn't imagen a better, more enjoyable or more beautiful first introduction to the world of archery. I fell in love with this activity, and the passion of Kirsten was shared and spread to yet another person. I highly recommend anyone in this area of Crete to pay them a visit and try their fun, challenging and beautiful parcour course, whether you be new to archery or a veteran wishing to practice your favourite activity.

Do yourself a favour and try this out! Enjoy!

Activity a short drive from Elafonissi Beach. Two instructors helped everyone learn to shoot an arrow. Then we embarked on a twenty station course, similar to a mini golf course. The kids had an absolutely great time. We visited Athens, Santorini, and Crete over two weeks and this was their favorite experience. Plan for 3-6 hours. The course has two different locations to shoot from (maybe youth and adult). The views are amazing. An experience like this would cost more than $100/person in the US. Check it out before it gets busier and more expensive.

In November I went with my brother and his 2 jung boys for the first time to this beautiful park in the middle of the mountains and still right by the sea. We had a great time at Parko Toxovolias and we will surely come again.
The park was beautiful and we got great archery lessons with tips, not only how to handle the equipment, but also how to handle the whole family.... because it is really exciting, when you do archery for the first time.
Thank you very much for the beautiful day at your park!

Beautiful 3d archery range and professional instructions from Kirsten. We went there last year as completely new to archery, and we liked it so much that we immediately joined a local archery club when we came home to Denmark, and this year we returned as experienced archers and had just as much fun as the first time.

Our family (ages 6-50something) spent a wonderful evening here, wandering through olive groves, following a nicely laid out course, shooting arrows at various targets (including a very startled longhorn goat!) and enjoying stunning views.

Kirsten and Susanne were wonderful hosts, introducing us to the fun sport of archery with patience and passion.

100% would recommend if you fancy trying something different while visiting Paleochora.
