Tour Description Book this Tour

"Lake Doxa was the absolute highlight. The calm waters, the silence and the few farmers selling their local products, made us enjoy the best picnic in the world. Cycling in Peloponnese is magnificent"

This scenic route is just one 1.5 hours driving from Athens. It is suitable for cyclists of all levels, since we can adjust the route accordingly. The ride passes through countless, traditional villages of Peloponnese located in high altitude, mainly supporting the snow resort of Trikala during the winter time. It is quite impressive that the flora constantly changes, with dense pine forests giving their place to either spruce trees or endless plains. The overall landscape also impresses the cyclists with is winding roads and its steep climb. Climbing up the mountain range of Ziria can be quite challenging but reaching to Lake Doxa is definitely highly rewarding and relaxing.
