Day 1: Athens – Spetses island - Athens
Our meeting point is Gate D at Piraeus Port at around 7.30 am (depending on the ferry schedule of the day), where our tour leader will greet you and provide basic information about the program of the day. We will then embark on a high-speed ferry that will take us to Spetses island in approximately 2 hours. Once we get to the quaint capital town of Spetses, we will enjoy a short walk around its narrow paved streets and alongside the coast, also passing by the historic Posidonio Hotel, one of the main attractions of the island. You can optionally enjoy a coffee in one of the nice cafes at the port, before we pick up our mountain bikes and get started for our tour around the island.
We will follow the coastal road, along the rugged green shores of the northern side. After a short ascent, we will make a stop at the scenic Zogeria bay (km. 6), where you can refresh yourselves by swimming in its crystal clear waters (depending on the weather). We will then continue some more uphill, towards the Southern side of the island. The panoramic views over the sea and the Peloponnese will definitely captivate you! Half-way from the beginning, we’ll make our main stop at the beach of Ayioi Anargiroi (km. 13), where a nice beach and cafe will be ideal for some rest. At the right side end of the beach, we will explore the famous Bekiris Sea Cave, where islanders fled during an invasion of the Albanians, and where some scenes from great Greek movies were shot.
Leaving Ayioi Anargiroi we will head East and uphill following the road into the forest. After 8 kilometers we will be entering Spetses town from Ag. Marina. The old port is the next point of interest that we will visit. As sunset time approaches, enlightening the picturesque houses and buildings alongside the port, get your cameras in hands and capture the sheer beauty! With the bike tour coming to its end, we will return the bikes and still have some time to spend on the island. You can use this time to wonder around the alleys of Spetses town, shop some souvenir or local specialties, and sit in a seafood tavern to sample typical mezes and Greek ouzo.
In the evening, we’ll take the ferry back to Piraeus (around 20:00, depending on the ferry schedule of the day)
