Islandhopping Best of Aegean: Guided multi-day cross-country tour by bike & boat to the islands of Kos, Leros, Nisyros and Tilos: Move in on board with a charming wooden motor yacht for the week and enjoy a journey through the fascinating island world of the Greek Aegean. A colorful and honorable history has characterized the islands and will accompany you on your journey.
Many new trails have been constructed in this area and many existing ones have been cleared and maintained. No off-road adventure will be left unexplored. The varying terrain offers riders everything from natural paths to varying single trails. Some more technical and others more flowy. The best way to experience the highlights of the Aegean is by boat and bike! A ton of fun is to be had here. The islands are a magical world with every island offering its own unique character, history and sprawling nature. Forget about packing your bags, your comfortable boat is your floating home, restaurant and transport for the duration of the tour.
After the tours your boat will anchor in idyllic bays for a refreshing swim stop. As the sun goes down enjoy an evening in good company, with good food, an ouzo (or two) and a bit of Sirtaki in a local tavern: a must-do in Greece as the local ‘filoxenia’, is a demonstration of true proverbial hospitality. Sometimes a night will be spent on anchor giving all the possibility to swim in the rays of moonlight or alternatively with the rising sun at dawn.
Take a legendary trip through the playground of the gods, a modern day trail paradise. This Islandhopping trip by boat & bike to the South Aegean isles will exceed all your expections!
