Two Day Tour “Mount Parnonas”

Tour Description

In this winter’s weekend ride, we will explore the historic region of Kynouria . Starting our ride from Athens, we will reach the foothills of Mount Parnonas (Kronos’ Holy Moountain). Following provincial roads of the Eastern side of Parnonas we will ride through picturesque villages towards the Monastery of Elona, one of the most impressive built landmarks of the region.

On our way back on Sunday, we will visit the village Kosmas, known as the “balcony of Kynouria”, and ride the West side of Parnonas towards Tripoli and then use the National road to Athens.

This ride circles the largest mountain of the Peloponnese passing through unique landscapes, stone-built villages, natural springs along the route and also gives us the opportunity to taste local traditional cuisine using the famous “Tsakoniki” eggplant.

DIFFICULTY: LEVEL 2

These routes usually appear in multi-day tours, and in asphalt-paved roads in good condition. During these tours, however, we may also have to travel on dirt roads or at high altitudes with varying weather conditions for a few days (2 or 3). Some routes entail more turns and it is therefore important that riders should have driving experience in such conditions.
