Cycle directly to legendary ruins in the Peloponnese

Outside magazine named our Sacred Sites  tour one of the “6 Best Cycling Tours in Europe.  “Lonely Planet named the Peloponnese peninsula the #1 European destination in 2016.  No one comes to Greece without paying homage to at least one ancient ruin, and some of Greece’s most legendary sacred sites lie right in the Peloponnese.  

Extensive biking enables you to visit a series of archaeology sites.  You bike to the 3rd century BC Epidavros Theatre which once was the largest healing center in the ancient world.  You also bike to Mycenae where King Agamemnon ruled who launched the Trojan War.   It’s a thrill for the inner athlete in every cyclist to bike to Olympia home of the original Olympic Games.

Nature predominates on this tour that crosses the Arcadian Mountains where traditional villages steeped in local culture abound.  Many say the Peloponnese is the true Greece. Come judge for yourself!
