Bicycling in Greece will let you get to know some of the most beautiful beaches and crystal blue water in the world, picturesque villages nestled in hilly landscapes, and great historical and archaeological sites. Almost every destination on biking trips boasts some significant temple or ruin; the most renowned include the ruins of Agamemnon’s palace in Mycenae, the temple Poseidon (the god of the sea) in Poros, and the ruins of the first Olympic site in Olympia.
Greece is blessed with a remarkably varied and dramatic land- and seascape. You can stand anywhere in Greece and still be within 100 kilometers of the sea. The country has more than 1,400 islands and islets, several snowy mountain ranges, 15,000 kilometers of coastline, dozens of thermal healing waters, and Europe’s richest flora and fauna with over 6,500 species and subspecies.
Get on your bike and drive through picturesque villages and old olive groves. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the sea while following coastal routes. Explore the Greek countryside and enjoy your breaks in tavernas and kafeneia on your way.

- Hooked on Cycling: Greece
Hooked on Cycling has had some fabulous bike vacations in Greece. Several guided cycle tours and two self guided bike tours. Self guided cycling holidays on Rhodes and Corfu as well as 3 bike and boat tours around the islands of Greece. These are wonderful trips for cyclists and non-cyclist alike as there is no reason to go out cycling each day. If you choose, you can stay on board your floating hotel and relax in the sun admiring the stunning scenes in front of you.
