Paths of Poseidon MTB Day Tour: On this easy bike tour you will have the chance to explore the Sounion National Park and visit Cape Sounion where one of Greece's most beautiful and ancient monuments is located: the fabled Temple of Poseidon.
Sound tempting? This is exactly what AtticaPaths promises with their Paths of Poseidon MTB Day Tour. Only a few years ago, in March 2017, a group of friends founded this young company. The team has many years of sporting experience and they all share in common a love of nature and biking. Their wish is to share the biking trails and hidden natural beauties of Attica with mountain bikers from all around the world.
The tour has been created in such a way that it can be mastered even by those with little MTB experience and is suitable for families with children aged 10 and up.
