Greece Cycling Adventure
Group Dates #1: Sept 18-24, 2021
Group Dates #2: Oct 4-10, 2021
Welcome to Greece!
If you like exploring on and off the bike – learning a bit of history – savoring local flavors and drinks then this is the trip for you.
Our journey begins on the eastern side of Crete – the home of Zeus. After a 25km warm-up ride along the water, jump on a boat to Spinalonga Island. Local expert Adonis will tell you why lepers lived here until 1957. Take in the sunset while dipping your toes in the water at the local taverna. The next day we’ll ride our bikes inland to meet gentle locals, sample true Greek food and see how time has stopped decades ago.
The next day we’ll ferry to Paros Island and meet our favorite cyclist – Stefanos. He rarely leaves the island and you’ll quickly see why. Few cars, a quiet life pace and beautiful landscapes are good reasons to stay. We’ll be doing two island rides, learn about local life and learn Greek! Off the bike, we’re kayaking thru beautiful blue water to secrete caves. Stefanos has packed a lunch for the beach and towels for swimming.
To finish our journey we’ll ferry to the most famous of the Cyclades islands – Santorini. Yes, we’ll walk white-washed streets and see the classic round, blue roof. Our final day is a beautiful hike along cliffs with sweeping views of the caldera. Lunch is at a classic taverna where few visit. To celebrate the trip we’ll enjoy rooftop cocktails at sunset, dinner, and recap an amazing week.
Road or e-bikes available. 30 – 70km per day hilly
