NEW TOUR 2022!!

(Click here for the complete tour description as document.)

Evia Island is just a short hop from Athens and is full of surprises. It is easily accessible by public bus or by ferry. We offer a mini-trekking with 3 overnight locations.

The trip starts in the seaside town of Eretria, known for its Ancient Theatre and Temple. The day after arrival you may choose from 3 circular tours, of which 2 on the mainland. Next day you’ll take the ferry to the mainland and cycle along the coast to the north until the sliding bridge of Chalkida. You cross the bridge to Evia island and continu to Fylla. The ride ends at a restored farmhouse with natural swimming pond. The next day you make a circular tour from Fylla. Then an island-crossing transfer takes you south to the tiny village of Giannitsa. From there you peddle to Karystos along the river and across a fertile plain with vineyards. The lively town of Karystos is your home for the last days of this trip, where -after a day of cycling- the warm, azure waters of the Aegean Sea await you for a refreshing swim.

The bicycle routes
The distances are between 18 and 58 kilometers. You will encounter some steep or extended ascents of up to 500m. You will need a bicycle with at least 21 gears. At a surcharge you may use an e-bike. You follow mostly surfaced country roads, with the occasional short section on well-maintained dirt tracks. Busy roads are avoided, though you will have to do some short sections with traffic.
