After picking up our motorcycles and checking our equipment, we leave our base and the center of Athens behind. We head northwest of Athens, crossing its suburban outskirts and taking us to our first off-road encounter of the trip: a beautiful dirt road through a pristine pine forest will lead us to Psatha beach. We 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! We continue to Lake Vouliagmeni, the famous Isthmus of Corinth, and then on to ancient Corinth-Acrocorinth, in order to enjoy the ancient monuments, there. We will relax and enjoy the scenery at 1000m altitude and enjoy dinner together.
After enjoying our traditional Greek breakfast, our tour will begin with a 10km uphill climb to the Ziria ski resort so that we and our motorcycles can warm up. We continue through the forest of Mount Ziria and from there we 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. We 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 we will visit Lake Tsivlos and historical Kalavryta. We will have the opportunity to explore the Kalavryta area on a more adventurous route we have prepared for you. At the end of the day and before our overnight stay, we will enjoy a culinary journey together of the local delicacies of the area.
We leave behind Kalavryta and cross the plain of Kastria with its historic villages Clitoria and Lefkassio. We continue south and drive along the Ladon River, enjoying the unique beauty of the landscape, reaching all the way to the Ladon Dam. Our course, as well as our mountain route, will give us the opportunity to enjoy and photograph it from above. Afterwards, through the historic villages of Kontovazaina and Tropea we 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.
Get ready for a really great day.
We start our route through villages with a deep history and unique architecture such as Lagadia and Chrysovitsi, along the Tripoli of Arcadia prefecture. We 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 we will admire the view of the Argolic Gulf, where we will reach the village of Leonidio. A steep pass will lead us 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.
It is our last day, but it will be just as interesting as the previous ones. Leaving behind the picturesque city of Nafplio, we 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, we will reach the Isthmus of Corinth and from there we will cross the Geranias Mountains and reach the north-western outskirts of the national park of Parnitha. A route of unparalleled natural beauty where we will meet ancient temples, ruins of ancient cities, but also many places of photographic interest. We head back to our destination today, Athens.
