More details

Insurance: The motorcycles are insured against third party liability. In case of damage to the vehicle, caused by own fault, the material costs must be borne by the causer. There is the possibility for 20 euros / day a comprehensive insurance with a deductible of 1000 euros, conclude.
Tour character: This is an adventure tour, in which we alternate between unpaved and small paved country roads "off the beaten track". The daily tours are planned in length so that there is enough time and possibility to stop on the way, take pictures or visit villages. Authentic and traditional Greek highlights and varied routes make for a fantastic and unique motorcycle adventure in Greece.
ALLROAD routes: We will ride a lot of small country roads and sometimes we move on dirt roads, like gravel roads through the mountains, forests and along the sea. Most of the time these are rocky but well passable. There are no difficult tracks, so the tour is suitable for every experienced motorcyclist who is not afraid of gravel and loves to travel and discover. However, an off-road basic training is always useful as a preparation. It teaches you how to best handle your motorcycle off-road. It will certainly increase your riding pleasure. The motorcycles are light and handy perfect for the dirt roads.
Climate: The Peloponnese has a Mediterranean climate with a mild winter and hot and mostly dry summers. From mid-May to mid-September at the latest, it remains mostly dry and summery hot in the coastal regions. In the many mountainous regions it rains more and the temperatures are adapted to the altitudes. Last remnants of snow can still be seen until May. While it is very green in April and May, in September and October the landscape has turned brown in many places. In October, with the more frequent rain (don't worry, it's not that much), the landscape becomes very green again and the mild temperatures create a spring atmosphere.
Clothing: A helmet is mandatory, as well as protective clothing with protectors, good gloves and boots or sturdy shoes. Because of the temperatures, it is recommended to wear breathable protective clothing. With jacket and pants, make sure there is sufficient ventilation. We recommend a "Dual Sport/Adventure" helmet or an open face enduro helmet with goggles that provide good protection against dust. Note that a closed visor is warm and the enduro helmet with its visor also provides the necessary shade for the eyes. Furthermore, a good pair of sunglasses is of course practical. Expect it to be a bit colder in the mountains. The weather is usually good in Greece, even in the mountains, and any rain is often soon replaced by bright warm sunshine.
Travel documents: For this trip you need a valid driver's license and a passport or ID card.
Language: This offer is usually suitable for English and/or German speaking participants. We will gladly provide binding information upon request.
Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.

During this "Allroad Motorcycle Tour" we explore the Peloponnese peninsula, off the main roads, on handy rental motorcycles (BMW or KTM). We ride varied routes over small gravel roads and beautiful forest paths. We cross mountains, visit authentic Greek villages and of course get to the sea.

We start in Rafina, not far from Athens. On the way we visit the Lukas monastery and Delphi. From Nafpaktos we head for the impressive Peloponnese peninsula. We pass the towns of Olympia, Dimitsana, Kardamili, Mystras and Nafplio. Via the Corinth Canal, we return to Rafina. This is an adventure trip where we alternate between dirt and small paved country roads: "off the beaten track". Authentic, traditional Greek highlights and varied routes make for a fantastic and unique motorcycle adventure in Greece.

Peloponnese is perhaps the area with the most important sights in Greece. Here you will find archaeological and cultural highlights combined with beautiful nature and great gastronomy. It is possible to extend this trip with the "Motorcycle Tour on Evia Island" (4 riding days). If you prefer more Enduro and small tracks, then you can book the "3 days Enduro Tour" or we can organize a tailor-made tour for you.

This tour varies from day to day:

DAY 1 ARRIVAL ATHENS TRANSFER RAFINA

Arrival in Athens and transfer to the hotel in Rafina (approx. 30 min drive). Rafina is a pretty little harbour town where the market place is bustling in the evening. In the harbour itself tavernas invite you to eat. Depending on the time of arrival it is possible to visit Athens and the Acropolis.

DAY 2 RAFINA - ARACHOVA/ DELPHI

We start the motorcycles and ride first on asphalt roads to get used to Rafina/Athens. Then we turn onto small country roads. We will alternate between paved and unpaved roads. On the way we will visit the Monastery of St. Luke, one of the most beautiful Byzantine buildings in Greece. Delphi is a small provincial town, visited mainly for the remains of a sanctuary and the ancient oracle. The inhabitants of Delphi, like their distant ancestors, still live off the proceeds of the Oracle.

DAY 3 ARACHOVA/ DELPHI - NAFPAKTOS

In the morning we have time to visit Delphi. Besides its cultural and historical importance, a visit to the oracle is a "must" also for the reason that we have a magnificent view over the steep slopes with cypresses and pines. Then we make our way to Nafpaktos. We ride further inland and take small winding roads through mountains and forests. Nafpaktos is a typical Greek port town dominated by a Venetian fortress.

DAY 4 NAFPAKTOS - OLYMPIA - DIMITSANA

Today we head for the Peloponnese peninsula. We will ride partly on small roads through the mountains. Erymanthos, also called Olonos, is a mountain range in the southern part of Achaia and the northeastern part of Elis. With an altitude of 2,224 meters, it is the fourth highest mountain in the Peloponnese peninsula. We visit the archaeological site of Olympia and continue on dirt roads to the small town of Dimitsana, picturesquely located in the valley of the river Lousios, known as the Louisios Gorge.

DAY 5 DIMITSANA - KARDAMILI

We continue our journey over the smallest roads and paths through the mountains. We visit the spectacularly situated Pródromos Monastery (Moní timíou Prodrómou) and follow the picturesque road south. We pass small villages and enjoy beautiful views. Our destination is Kardamili, a seaside resort with a rich history. According to Homer, it was one of the seven cities that Agamemnon gave to Achilles so that Achilles could take part in the Trojan War. Here we stay for two nights.

DAY 6 KARDAMILI - REMAIN

You can explore the village and surroundings today or we can take a motorbike tour to the southernmost point of Peloponnese. Kardamili is a picturesque village with a small harbour surrounded by olive groves. The island of Meropi is about two hundred meters from the coast. Here are the ruins of an ancient Venetian wall and the church of Agios Ioannis. Behind Kardamili, on the side of the hill, is "old Kardamili".here you can visit the old residential complex of the Mourtzinos family, one of the most famous families from the 17th century. In and around Kardamili there are several pebble beaches. In the village itself there are many nice traditional restaurants and "Kafeneions".

DAY 7 KARDAMILI - NAFPLIO

We reach the Taygetos mountains. There, beautiful forest paths await us. We can visit some of the most beautiful pitoresque villages of Peleponese and also the old castle of Mystras, which was occupied by western travellers during the Ottoman period. Continuing northwards we pass Sparta. The day ends today in the elegant city of Nafplio, once the first capital of liberated Greece. The city lies in the shadow of a large rock on which stands the Palamidi Castle. Near the port is the Venetian fortress island of Bourzi. The atmospheric city offers a mixture of Italian elegance, Greek hospitality and tourist cheerfulness.

DAY 8 NAFPLIO - CORINTHOS - RAFINA

Today will be another varied day of riding. On the way we visit the Mycenaean Acropolis of Midea and the best preserved ancient Greek theatre, located in Epidaurus. We leave the Peloponnese and reach the isthmus of Corinth. Of course, we take a look at the deep Corinth Canal before heading towards Athens. We stay overnight once again in the coastal town of Rafina, from where we started the tour.

DAY 9 END OR EXTENSION

This is where the tour ends. You get an airport transfer or you extend with four beautiful riding days on the island of Evia, pure motorcycle adventure.
