Description

About this holiday
Imagine Island hopping, arriving at a new destination each day and discovering each island by bike. On this very special trip you will get to explore the Greek islands in a completely unique way and create memories that will last a lifetime. You’ll discover the beauty of The Cyclades day by day, port by port by ferry and you will ride daily a different route. We embark from the port of Lavrio, just outside Athens, to our adventure amongst the islands of the Aegean Sea: The Cyclades. You will get to cycle amazing roads on the islands of Kea, Kythnos, Syros, Paros and Serifos.  We have arranged for you help with your luggage from/to every port.

Self-guided biking tour

Participating in a self-guided biking tour is one of the most pleasant ways to discover a destination in depth. Upon your arrival, we will supply you with your GPS application with routes, maps, road book, etc., and of course your bike with all necessary equipment such as panniers, service kit, locks etc. During your stay in the islands, you will have the freedom to spend your time in any way you wish. Whether you decide to wake up early or start later, you cycle at your own pace and stop anywhere that catches your interest on the proposed route. In this way you are not obliged to follow a specific schedule but can just follow at your own tempo. And of course we provide 24h telephone support in case of emergency just to be sure everything rolls along smoothly.

A Sustainable Holiday

Arcas Travel Services believes in sustainable and responsible tourism, and is committed to having the lowest possible environmental impact. By employing only local guides and using only regional services we provide a form of tourism that benefits the community. The visitor also benefits by being able to come closer to authentic local cultures and traditions due to our unique local knowledge. We think tourism should be about respect and benefit to the local inhabitants and that responsible travelers will get more out of their holiday by giving a little bit back to the special places and people that they meet. To help offset the carbon emissions Arcas also donates 10 euros per client which is shared between forestry commissions in the Peloponnese for reforestation after the deadly fires of 2007.

DAY 2: Kea (25Km and +571m or 49Km and +1120m)

Kea is different from the rest Cycladic islands and it has a unique charm. You can discover the island for yourself on one of two routes 25 or 49 Km. You´ll pass beautiful beaches on your way to the capital of the island, Ioulida that is well worth exploring. Wander through
the small cobbled streets to the neoclassic city hall built by the architect Ernst Tsiller. Don’t forget to taste the jams and preserves that
are a specialty of the island.In the afternoon you get your ferry to Kythnos. Overnight in Kythnos.

DAY 3: Kythnos (22Km and +435m or 43Km and +809m)

We wake in the Port of Merichas, on the Island of Kythnos. With only 1310 local habitants, it is quiet here in winter, but comes alive in the summer. On our cycle ride we will pass through the capital, on through beautiful hill country and finally arriving at the village of
Dryopida. Here there is a cave full of stalactites and stalagmites which has been a hiding place for the villagers from pirates and Ottomans alike. Taverns and cafes welcome you in for a drink. In the afternoon you get the ferry to Syros. Overnight in Syros.

DAY 4: Syros (29Km and +387m)

Today you are in Syros, an island at the centre of the Cyclades. Our ride today is a tour around the island passing beaches and hamlets set in the rolling countryside. We stop at Hermoupolis, the capital of the Cyclades, which is set upon two hills, and where you will get to spend some time exploring the city. Neoclassical buildings, the historic theatre and the old medieval city all make the capital unique. Don’t forget to taste the traditional “Loukoumi” of Syros, or to try the cafes and the local taverns.In the afternoon you take the ferry to Paros. Overnight in Paros.

DAY 5: Paros (27Km and+353m or 51Km and +517m)

Our next destination is the iconic Island of Paros with its world-famous windmills. You will cycle through picturesque villages, with their white houses, and passing idyllic rural settings will enjoy an unforgettable day. Again, we suggest two routes, one short, which is easy for everyone and a longer one for those who want a challenge. Overnight in Paros..

DAY 6: Serifos (26Km and +677m or 37Km and +946m)

Today you get the ferry for Serifos. According to the Greek mythology Serifos Island is the birthplace of Perseus and home to the Cyclops who were the children of Poseidon. The Ancient Greeks believed that the Cyclops lived in a cave, above Megalo Livadi Bay, and that they had built the walls, remnants of which are seen throughout the island.Overnight in Serifos

DAY 7: Serifos (26Km and +677m or 37Km and +946m)

Serifos is a small, but very picturesque, island and Chora, the capital is built on the slope of a very steep hill!! Our route will take you around the island and then onto Chora. The island has some fairly steep hills, and the highest summit is at 585m, however it is not big, and cyclists really enjoy their time here.

DAY 8: Departure

Today you take the ferry from Serifos to Piraeus. We Greeks don’t like to say goodbye. Instead we prefer to say «Εις το επανιδείν» which means that we hope to see you again some time!
