After the tickets required for the day’s sights have been distributed we will be ready to go! Our certified MTB guide will accompany you during the whole tour. We will start our tour heading east with a slight incline for the first 1.7km following which the trail will flatten out. After riding along these beautiful natural paths and quiet asphalt roads there will be some further gentle climbs.

There will be plenty of water breaks throughout the day and once we have reached the highest point of the tour there will be the chance to take a longer breather. Here, with a great view of Athens, there will be plenty of time to take some stunning photos.

The view of Athens can still be enjoyed as we continue to cycle at this 500 meter altitude. After about 7km the entire east side of Attic will be visible all the way to the Athens International Airport.

Our pleasant ride continues on towards the cave of Peanie, the "Koutouki Cave", which will be our first stop. Shortly afterwards we will visit a local winery.

Next we will continue to ride on towards Sounion National Park. After 10 km of mostly downhills through varied terrain, we will reach the coast.
