2nd Day         MTB Tour ‘Kalamari’                   Distance: 28 km., Elevation: 260 m.

This warm-up tour takes us through one of the most important wetlands of the Balkans into the verdant hills behind the small village of Gialova.

3rd Day         MTB Tour ‘Maglavas’                    Distance: 35 km., Elevation: 710 m.

Today’s destination is the highest mountain in the area, Maglavas. From its summit we can look out over the eastern coast of the Ionian Sea. The long downhill section through olive groves is your reward for the more demanding ascent in the morning.

 4th Day         Road Bike Tour ‘Nestor Hills’         Distance: 29 km., Elevation: 790 m.

In the hills around the Mycenaean Palace of King Nestor, hidden trails reveal marvellous views of Messinia’s untouched landscape. We shall of course be visiting the archaeological site and its fascinating museum.

Stunning vistas of the entire region and a visit to the small village of Romiri on the slopes of Mt. Lykodimo are among today’s highlights. This is a place where ancestral traditions are still very much alive, an area reached by only very few tourists.
