Motorcycle tour in Greece : Aegan to Ionian sea

Motorcycling in Greece is an incredible journey that combines a bit of everything: mountains, valleys, beaches, forests and amazing history. We will pass through Mount Olympus, Greece’s highest mountain and the “home of the gods.” Then we will descend towards the enormous Platamonas beach under the shadow of its famous ancient castle. After, we will ride through slopes, meadows and lakes and visit the most famous oracle of antiquity—The Delphi. Here ancient Greeks sought to divine their future, maybe we will be able to as well!

This tour combines a journey through Mount Pindos, the southeastern-most leg of the Alps in the Balkan Peninsula and crosses through the Tzoumerka, a complex of traditional settlements between forests. AS we travel, you will be astounded by award winning beaches, like those on the island of Lefkada with their emerald colored waters. Then we will continue through the depths of virgin forests in Karpenissi and ride up to the most famous Greek ski resort of Arachova.

The journey takes you over traditional stone bridges and rivers and villages spoken of by Homer that seems to have not been touched by time. Additionally, you will visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Meteora, whose beauty is recognizable from photographs that have travelled to every corner of the globe.

Moving further south, you will cross over to the Peloponnese with our destination being the city of Olympia: the birthplace of the Olympic Games where its ancient stadium and artefacts still stand. Unlike other Greece motorcycle tours, our ride is careful crafted to take the most scenic routes where traffic is minimal and sightseeing opportunities are countless.

It offers great opportunities for hiking, rafting and mountain-biking where you can then explore surrounding villages and historical monasteries.
