Stage 3 of The Odyssey

In Stage 3 we will be exploring mainland Greece for the first 10 days, but don't worry, we will board a boat again as we finish with the irresistible Ionian Islands - famous for their cycling pedigree, history and beauty! Although one of our favourite cities for its amazing history, we are glad to mount our bikes and depart Athens heading north into Sterea Eliada, with magnificent archaeology at Delphi and the pass of Thermopylae. Skirting the beautiful Pelion Peninsula, our target in the Pierian Mountains is the home of the ancient gods, Mount Olympus, and what better mountain to conquer on our modern day Odyssey! We descend from the clouds to weave between the hugely impressive huge rock pillars of Meteora, which are surmounted by monasteries. To the Ionian Islands we ride - first Kefalonia, which has its very own Mont Ventoux called Mount Einos! This island is hard to beat for cycling, even considering where we have come from. After circumnavigating our penultimate isle we then head to Odysseus' 3000 year old home Ithaca where we celebrate completing our modern day Odyssey.
