A challenging exploration of mainland Greece
Greece is the ideal country for any activity throughout the year, and cycling is no exception. The mild temperatures, mountainous terrain and endless coastline, offer a complete cycling experience.
In this trip, after spending our first day in Athens, the historical capital of Europe, we ride the most majestic parts of the eastern Peloponnese. We ride from coast to coast, all the way to the most southern point. Enjoy ancient olive tree fields, spectacular lagoons, cliff-top coastal routes, volcanic areas, small islands unparalleled, wide open views of the Aegean, and superb climbs.
Our route passes a number of significant historical and cultural points of interest – cornerstones of Western civilisation. Apart from the city of Athens and Acropolis Hill, which everyone can pay a visit to on the arrival day, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the Corinth Canal, the city of Nafplio and the Medieval Fortified City of Monemvasia are also among the highlights of the trip.
The food and the original Mediterranean flavours are rightly famous. We enjoy traditional dishes, offered mostly by family tavernas and restaurants, located in remote villages, where the meals are prepared in the authentic way, using fresh and tasty ingredients. Original flavours and great food. What a trip!
