Program

Arrival day: Athens

Today will be your arrival day and you will have a welcome dinner with the group.

First day's ride: Athens - Nafplio (171 kilometers / 106 miles / 2.5 hours)

You pick up your Chieftains from Legendary Rides offices and you ride to Nafplion, the first capital of modern Greece. You will cross the famous Corinth canal Isthmus, separating Peloponnisos from mainland Greece to continue on scenic coastal roads to the unique Ancient Theater of Epidavros. You will lunch in the picturesque seaport village of Palea Eidavros and in the evening, you will visit and dine in the lovely old town of Nafplio.

Second day's ride: Nafplio - Monemvasia (195 kilometers / 121 miles / 4.5 hours)

Starting from Nafplion, you will take the beautiful scenic eastern coastal road to Leonidio where you will lunch and have a swim at Plaka’s little fishing port. From there, you will choose between riding through the new coastal road up to inland hills to reach Monenvasia or you ride through a scenic narrow gorge to the cliff-hanging monastery of Saint Eloni. If so, you will then continue your ascent to the village of Kosmas at 1150 meters altitude and enjoy a coffee break under the huge old plane trees of the village square. After that, it's a downhill ride to Monemvasia, where you will dine in the amazing historical hidden castle city of the “Rock.”

Third day's ride: Monemvasia - Marmari (167 kilometers / 103 miles / 4 hours)

It will be a fresh morning start and off you ride through a lovely brand new scenic road for lunch in the old port of Gytheio. From there, you will start your descent to Mani, the middle peninsula of the Isle of Morea. You will first ride from the sun rising side (east coast) to Cape Teneron; the tip of Mani and of South-Eastern mainland Europe. Marmari will be your destination for the evening, right on the beach. A swim is not to be missed!

Fourth day's ride: Marmari - Kalamata (137 kilometers / 85 miles / 3 hours)

An early morning swim would be inviting, before starting your ascent from the sun setting side of Mani (west coast). A stop for coffee and cake in Gerolimenas bay will give you time to absorb all the wild nature of Mani before you continue your ride and visit to the amazing water Caves of Dyros (weather permitting). Your ascent on beautiful coastal Mani goes on to reach the seaside village of Kardamyli for a late lunch. Your final destination will be beachfront of Kalamata; the old major port city and capital of the world-renowned finest olive oil of Peloponissos.

Fifth day's ride: Kalamata - Athens (300 kilometers / 186 miles / 5 hours)

Brace yourself for your last day of riding through mount Taygetos overshadowing Sparta and your visit to the stunning Byzantine kingdom of ancient Mystras. You will continue with a relaxed and easy riding through the prettiest highway of Peloponnisos to your last stop in mythical ancient Mykines: the birthplace of the beautiful Helen of Troy. The kingdom of Agamemnon, from the Greek Mythology, dates from the Bronze Age. It is the oldest on the Isle of Morea, being over 3000 years old. A nice light lunch awaits you on the outskirts and back you ride to your hotel in Glyfada to get ready for your farewell dinner.
