The Tour

Peleponnese by boat & bike - Methana

The Saronic Islands and Peloponnese are the destination of choice for many Athenians seeking relaxation in the countryside. Mass tourism is actively counteracted here in favor of an authentic Greek vacation feeling. Each (half) island has its own charm, whether barren or fertile, overgrown with pistachio, olive or lemon groves, whether thermal land, donkey island or herb meadow. The tour "Peloponnese by bike & boat" is characterized by lots of nature, sea and beaches with great bathing opportunities.
The pace is set by the e-bike cyclists; if you want to ride a trekking bike, you should therefore be in good physical condition, as there are up to 700 m of ascent per day. If you wish, you can stay on board the comfortable motor sailers MS Thalassa and MS Erato.
