Program

Day 1: Athens - Ano Trikala of Corinth (210 kilometers / 130 miles)

After picking up your motorcycles and checking your equipment, you leave the base and the center of Athens behind. You will head northwest of Athens, crossing its suburban outskirts and taking you to your first off-road encounter of the trip: a beautiful dirt road through a pristine pine forest will lead you to Psatha beach.

You will move along the beach and then climb the Geranias Mountains enjoying an uphill off-road path. Get ready to take unique photos because this sea view is breathtaking!

You will continue to Lake Vouliagmeni, the famous Isthmus of Corinth, and then on to ancient Corinth-Acrocorinth, in order to enjoy the ancient monuments, there. You will relax and enjoy the scenery at 1000-meter altitude and enjoy dinner together.

Day 2: Ano Trikala - Kalavrita (215 kilometers / 133 miles)

After enjoying a traditional Greek breakfast, the tour will begin with a 10-kilometer uphill climb to the Ziria ski resort so that you and your motorcycles can warm up.

You will continue through the forest of Mount Ziria and from there you will go downhill looking for the village of Goura in mountainous Corinth and then the chapel of Agios Fanourios which is in the center of the artificial lake Feneos.

You will leave the prefecture of Corinth behind and go up in altitude. An uphill pass will lead us to the southeastern part of Mount Helmos, where the landscape becomes even wilder and greener due to the dense fir forest, large plane trees and cool brooks.

Afterwards you will visit Lake Tsivlos and historical Kalavryta. You will have the opportunity to explore the Kalavryta area on a more adventurous route prepared for you. At the end of the day and before your overnight stay, you will enjoy a culinary journey together of the local delicacies of the area

Day 3: Kalavrita - Ancient Olympia (143 kilometers / 88 miles)

You will leave behind Kalavryta and cross the plain of Kastria with its historic villages Clitoria and Lefkassio. You will continue south and drive along the Ladon River, enjoying the unique beauty of the landscape, reaching all the way to the Ladon Dam.

The course, as well as the mountain route, will give you the opportunity to enjoy and photograph it from above. Afterwards, through the historic villages of Kontovazaina and Tropea, you will reach the forest of Foloi and from there to ancient Olympia. At Ancient Olympia, be prepared to visit the stadium and feel the unique aura of the birthplace of the Olympic Games.

Day 4: Ancient Olympia - Naflpio (265 kilometers / 165 miles)

Get ready for a really great day. You will start your route through villages with a deep history and unique architecture such as Lagadia and Chrysovitsi, along the Tripoli of Arcadia prefecture. You will then drive to Mount Parnonas at the point where it divides the prefecture of Arcadia with the prefecture of Laconia.

The landscape is flooded with chestnut, plane trees and rivers. From the back of Parnon you will admire the view of the Argolic Gulf, where you will reach the village of Leonidio. A steep pass will lead you to the cosmopolitan city of Nafplio. The city is built by the sea and in combination with its picturesque side streets, offer a unique experience.

Day 5: Naflpio - Athens (186 kilometers / 115 miles)

It is your last day, but it will be just as interesting as the previous ones. Leaving behind the picturesque city of Nafplio, you will reach the ancient city of Mycenae. Prepare to admire the land where the ancient Mycenaean civilization flourished in 1600 BC.

Following the ancient Mycenaean paths, you will reach the Isthmus of Corinth and from there you will cross the Geranias Mountains and reach the north-western outskirts of the national park of Parnitha.

A route of unparalleled natural beauty where you will meet ancient temples, ruins of ancient cities, but also many places of photographic interest. You will head back to your destination today, Athens.
