ELLADIKON TOUR

The Tour of the Hellenic region Elladikon, as it was named in the Byzantine Empire era, is bounded from the Istmus of the Corinth canal, up to the central northern Greece. We will ride through the scenic Ionian coastal road, up the mountains of Epirus and the wild scenery of the Zagoria villages, to the Valley of Meteora and its breathtaking rock perching monasteries, across to beautiful mount Pilion. From the west to the east coast of mainland Greece dipped in Mythology, this is a most relaxing ride as we intentionally aspire to engage all five of your senses.

We have planned our schedule to get the most out of the five-day riding tour in mainland Greece. Most, of course, does not refer to the amount of riding kilometers or miles per day but to experiencing the most in a day and always at a relaxed and pleasant pace.

Yes indeed this our longest day of riding in any of are tours but don’t be alarmed. It is our first day and we are all loaded with energy! It is a very easy going ride since most of the time we will be riding on the newly constructed scenic coastal highway. We will cross the impressive Corinth Isthmus canal to continue on the northern coastal highway of Peloponissos. We will cross back to mainland Greece through the majestic suspended bridge of Rio – Antirio, the world’s longest multi-span cable-stayed bridge also featured in the Mega-Structures documentary of National Geographic. From there will ride for our lunch in Astakos then through the scenic Ionian coastal road we will reach the lovely little port village of Parga.

Now we are leaving the coast and heading for a beautiful mountainous ride to reach the amazing Zagoria villages and their truly unique wild nature and scenery. Our destination, the village of Papingo, the most beautiful of them all, is situated in an incredible location between the gorge of Vikos and the Tymfi mountain range, truly breathtaking. Reaching our destination we will ride through an amazing set of 15 tight hairpins with a distance of an average of 100 meters between each one… challenging yet most fulfilling!

Today we will ride to Meteora, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988. The original meaning of the word meteoros (μετέωρος) means in a limbo. The Monasteries are perched in a limbo on these awe-inspiring rocks, millions of years old. This is a unique site and experience. Words cannot really describe what you will see or feel. Leaving Papingo for Meteora, weather permitting, we might have a couple of route choices to reach our destination, all on scenic roads. One of them and a favorite is through the straight of Katara (The Curse) after our lunch break in the mountain village of Metsovo We will spend the evening in the shadows of these colossal rocks and their centuries old monasteries.

Our last day riding and we hit the road back to Athens through the newly upgraded highway of the eastern coast of Greece. We will have the choice of two different return routes. One(A) shorter and on our way we will stop by the small remote fishing village of Mitzela for light lunch and maybe a swim before we reach Athens and get ready for our farewell dinner. The longer route option (B) will require an earlier rise and departure so to cross by ferry to island of Euboa and indulge ourselves in a nice mountain ride before we again cross through the Chalkida Bridge back to the mainland to reach Legendary rides in Athens.
