All courses are daily and one way with best in class accommodations on both ends. Any course can be selected individually as a starting point of your cycling adventure. Two or more courses can be combined into a multi-day excursion which may complement or define your brief stay or extended vacation in Greece. Excursions can be fully supported, partially supported or not supported at all. Your choice. If interested in touring Athens and/or visiting a Greek isle prior or after your excursion, we’ll be happy to help you plan your visit.
All courses are on (old) roads that are very well maintained and safe to use, as traffic is routed to much faster and newer highways. They, therefore, provide a unique opportunity to cycle through the picturesque Greek countryside and go through small villages that depict the way of Greek rural living.
