Description of Peloponnese mountain biking holiday, Greece

This Peloponnese mountain biking holiday is a tailor made trip around some of Greece’s most stunning natural heritage. Cycling for a week, following a carefully crafted itinerary, with your bags transported for you, you will explore the Menalo Mountain region, the home of gods and goddesses, and the most ethereal landscapes.

You will also be cycling through valleys and villages that played a very important role during the country’s War of Independence against the Ottomans in 1821, and which are still deeply and beautifully traditional. Cool down after a morning’s cycle by fresh water springs, eat fine local food with plenty of local specialities, meet artisans and producers, and see where the road takes you. One day it is the ancient city of Mantinea, the next it is the superb underground cave system at Kapsia.

It’s not all uphill, mountains and history, though. Far from it. Your journey also brings you down to Nafplio, one of the region’s most stunning seaside towns, famous for its Venetian Palamidi fortress, where nearby beaches such as Karathona or Aghios Nikolas are pure bliss at the end of a week’s cycling.
This Peloponnese cycling holiday is suitable for people of most levels, as daily routes are relatively easy, with enough ups and downs to keep things varied but not to exhaust you. We want you to enjoy our beautiful part of the world after all!

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peloponnese mountain biking holiday, Greece

Environment

As we are aware of the fact that your trip here will cause carbon emissions, we offer 5 Euros to the environment for each participant for offsetting them! This money is going to be used, in cooperation with the local Forestry Office, the Greek Trekking Club of Tripolis and the Tripolis Ecologist Club, for afforestation in our mountains, that have been hit by great fires in the summer of 2007. We hope that our effort will push other companies, individuals or local authorities to contribute to this project too.

We are also owners of a small city hotel in the city of Tripoli in the centre of Peloponnese. In all of our tours that pass from there you will most possible stay to us during your holidays. Here we recycle paper, glass, plastic and metal. At your arrival here you will be given a Travellers Code of Conduct, where you will get informed about how to apply maximum responsibility during your holidays concerning environmental and socio-cultural factors.

Community

Choosing our holidays, you choose responsible holidays. As Mr Panagiotopoulos, founder and president of our company, was born and raised here, one of his biggest concerns is to secure that tourism will not affect negatively our area in ecological and socio-cultural way, and also that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel.

Our company which is the organizer and operator of this package is local-based and all our guides, drivers and employees are locals too, ensuring not only the economical benefit of our area but also your cultural benefit. In this trip, you will visit so many different places and you will always be surrounded by locals, experiencing the Greek way of living. But the most important thing for us, is that your presence here gives us a strong negotiation card for pressing the local authorities for the development of our area, such us constructing cycling streets in our city or finance and organize better our archaeological museums and sites.
