Mountain Bike Cruises
Trail encounters on beautiful islands
Cycle where no other biker has been. Downhill thrills and single trail challenges for all preferences and abilities.
Our Mountain Bike Cruises
In addition to recreational and cultural highlights, the sporting element definitely takes the foreground on our mountain bike cruises in Croatia and Greece. Our competent and MTB experienced Islandhopping guides lead you expertly across the islands and show you trails and spectacular views, witnessed only by yourselves and the lone wanderer.
The diverse terrain of the Mediterranean islands lures with its downhill thrills and part technical part flowing single trails whilst also offering more inexperienced mountain bikers, who enjoy spending time off the trodden path, more easy-going off road variations.
Our Standard MTB tours are offered parallel to our trekking tours on board of the same boat, while our Special MTB tours are aimed solely at mountain bikers, enabling us to offer two varying levels of difficulty whilst still enjoying the same passion.
Additionally in our programme: MTB & Family tours, which we have designed especially for mountain bike families.
LEVEL SYSTEM for our Mountain Bike Tours
In order for you to relate your ability to our MTB tours, we have compiled the following levels of difficulty:
MTB Level 1
Daily tours of 20 – 35 km / 12.5 – 22 mi. and 200 to 400 meters / 656 – 1.312 ft. of elevation. Enjoy relaxed and simple trails, while trying something new.
MTB Level 2
Daily tours of 30 – 55 km / 19 – 34 mi. and 400 to max. 750 meters / 1.312 – max. 2.460 ft. of elevation. You regularly enjoy riding your MTB in terrain and climbs of 500 meters of elevation are no real challenge. Steep and technical descents are not your favoured riding conditions.
MTB Level 3
Daily tours of 35 – 60 km / 22 mi. – 38 mi. / and 500 to max. 1000 meters / 1.640 – max. 3.280 ft. of elevation. You love technical trails/descents and demanding climbs.
Helmet use is mandatory on all biking routes. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own (well-fitted) helmet.
A new bike destination is rising up
International Trail Building in the Greek Aegean
“Trail” is the magical word for mountain bikers. These five letters are what keeps a mountain bikers heart beating, light up their eyes, and conjure a grin from cheek to cheek.
The Greek Aegean Islands offer a great potential for mountain biking: wild, often untouched nature, welcoming inhabitants and mediterranean lifestyle. Basically everything, except of the missing trails.
This is about to change now! In March 2017, 35 trail enthusiasts from 5 countries were building new trails and cleaning already existing trails on the 4 islands of Kos, Leros, Patmos and Lipsi.
The Greek film-maker Emmanouel Armoutakis has packed his trail building experience in breathtaking images. Dream yourself away by the action-packed sequence:
