Arrival day. Your start and finish is the town of Kalavryta, in the north of the Peloponnese peninsula. This small town is about a 2.5 hour ride from Athens Airport. After your arrival, enjoy the charm of this picturesque village. A dinner with the group is organised for the first evening, during which you will discuss the plans for the week.
Your adventure begins with the first stage to Corinth. In the morning, you start with a motorcycle briefing by our partner's team. Then you set off as soon as the bikes have been handed over. Today you will be riding around 250 km on a mix of gravel and asphalt roads. Your first stop is at a high altitude, in one of the most popular ski resorts on the Peloponnese peninsula. Your route then continues through forests and agricultural landscapes, over mountain plateaus to Corinth. You stop at the Corinth Canal before riding the last few kilometres directly to the sea and your hotel.
Today, you circumnavigate much of the Gulf of Corinth, before riding your motorcycles literally "from the sea to the sky" in the afternoon. This stage takes you to Ano Chora, covering around 350 km. On the way, you pass Delphi, which was considered to be the centre of the world by the ancient Greeks. Delphi offers some of the very best world-class asphalt bends for the real delectation of this motorcycling trip. In the late afternoon, you travel back in time, but only in terms of the nature of the roads. Expect cows on the road and stony and rocky sections. At the end of the day, enjoy a well-earned rest in a beautiful family-run hotel.
Today holds some surprises, as the 130 km includes unexpected variety as you ride along. Your route takes you through Greek forests, along narrow, winding and endlessly exciting roads. By the end, you will have reached an altitude of 1,700 metres above sea level. The route climbs up steep mountain ascents with no room for error. Please ride with caution. But nonetheless stops are factored in to let the group enjoy the unique and breathtaking beauty of the country. Since you are mostly riding off-road today, watch out for stone chips, sharp rocks and slippery areas. Your destination today is the small town of Karpenisi in the southern Pindos and Agrafa Mountains, where your hotel is also located.
Today's stage is around 160 km. This section sounds short, but it is not an easy ride. You head out of the forest to ride into the mountains. The Agrafa mountains are Greece's hidden secret. You start along easy and attractive asphalt roads, which become gravel tracks and lead directly into the Agrafa mountains. Following the River Agrafiotis takes you along some exciting off-road sections. The route becomes very challenging again. You will need to be in control of your bike because you will be climbing to an altitude of 1,700 metres. The roads on the slopes are steeper, but the challenges come one after the other. The day provides a wealth of magnificent views and, by way of reward, you end the day at a spa hotel on Lake Plastiras.
This route takes you right into the heart of Greece. Today, you explore three lakes: Plastiras and Kremasta reservoirs and Lake Trichonida. This route of around 250 km starts with a short but challenging off-road section. Today again you will be riding your motorcycle up to 1,700 metres above sea level. Once in the mountains, there are no more paved roads and your trip takes you further south. You will ride on a mixture of unpaved, almost overgrown, gravel and asphalt roads directly to the beautiful turquoise blue Kremasta reservoir, considered to be the jewel of central Greece. Your hotel has one of the best views of the entire tour above Lake Trichonida.
Today, you experience the spectacular crossing over the Charilaos-Trikoupis Bridge. Your route, approximately 200 km long, takes you from the mountains back down to the sea. You cross the Charilaos-Trikoupis Bridge to the Peloponnese peninsula. This bridge forms the border between the Gulf of Patras and the Gulf of Corinth. And then you continue back skywards. You follow some rocky roads, in total harmony with nature. It is important today that you relax with your motorcycle and ride this route with foresight. Once at the top, you are treated to a wonderful view of the coastal town of Patras. Your adventure tour ends north of Kalavryta with a ride back to the hotel.
Filled with great memories and proud to have completed this challenging tour, your motorcycle trip in Greece ends today. If you still have time, make the most of the spa in the hotel, or experience the hospitality of the beautiful mountain village of Kalavryta before heading home again.
This route is unique in Greece and includes a wealth of adventurous trails.”
