Natural & Archaeological Treasures
Before our departure, we will give you a short briefing about the route and a cross check as far as our motorcycles and safety gear is concerned.
Our route is designed for big on-off motorcycles, designed also for riders with limited experience in off-road routes. More experienced riders can have a co-rider if they wish.
We will start with a narrow asphalt road of 10 kilometers to the village of Mana so that we and our motorcycles warm up before the main dirt road section.
Leaving behind the village of Mana, we will enter the eastern side of Mount Ziria, where we are surrounded by fir trees and will also enjoy a panoramic view of the area that reaches the sea.
We continue and descend to the village of Kefalari where endless hills with old vineyards stretch before us. From now on we will ride to lower altitudes, mainly passing through low vegetation and white dirt roads.
We descend to the plain of Nemea where the famous mythical hero Hercules killed the well-known lion of Nemea, where he had terrified the region with his attacks. The area of Nemea has a long history in the production of wine and virgin olive oil, winning each year international awards for the quality of its products. Depending on the season, we will meet the region's farmers in their vineyards or olive groves. At this point, a small surprise will be there waiting for us.
We will continue to ride south through orange-mandarin and apricot trees and we will reach Mycenae in the prefecture of Argos. In a short while you will feel a different breeze... you guessed right, we are headed towards the sea.
In just 20 km we will reach an idyllic tavern next to the sea where we will enjoy seafood and fresh traditional salads made from local produce.
Our return will take place through the prefecture of Argos and will begin from the city of ancient Mycenae, which has a history of thousands of years (odysseus.culture.gr/h/1/gh151.jsp?obj_id=7061). We will cross the mountain that connects the prefecture of Argos with the prefecture of Korinthos to the village of Agios Vasileios. We will enjoy from above the ancient city of Mycenae and the view with the Argolic bay stretching out in front of us. In a relatively short time, we will reach ancient Nemea where we will see the ancient temple. From there we will climb the northeastern part of forest Grava through the village of Gonousa to the foothills of Mount Ziria, and touch base to our final destination.
After returning to our base, those of you who will remain with us, can relax in your room or take a stroll through the surrounding area. In the evening we will be waiting for you to dine all together, enjoying authentic Greek local flavors.
