    Get on our new high quality mountain bicycles and join this tour!

    Beside your visit to the archeological site of Olympia, with its botanical garden and on site museum, you will have the chance to be active yourself! Learn about the history, mythology and nature while cycling through the impressive surroundings of Olympia.

    We have a choice of two cycling paths, with an easy and an advanced medium difficulty level.

    Easy – suitable for children

    ** Total distance: Approx. 14km.
    ** Duration: 2 hours
    ** Difference in altitude: None

    The first cycling path (easy) is circular, the start and end will be at the archeological site of Olympia. We will cycle on flat roads: In the majority you will cycle on dirt roads, as well as asphalt roads. Our bicycle tour goes through the countryside of Olympia with its rich vegetation and water channels. The nature has a lush green uniqueness; hear the sounds of the stream and admire the olive trees and eucalyptus trees.

    Advanced Medium:

    ** Total distance: Approx. 10km.
    ** Duration: 2 hours
    ** Difference in altitude: 190 meters.

    The second cycling path (advanced medium) begins at the same starting point as the first cycling path. Our direction will be uphill though. While going uphill we will admire the panoramic view of Olympia and we will cross through the new planted forest of 14.000 trees, a project that has been initiated by the Nature Friendly Culture Society of Ancient Olympia.
    Continue on, we will descend the hill through olive farms and vineyards. Returning to Olympia on our circular bicycle tour, we will pass by the Olympian Academy, the Ancient Stadium and the statue of Pierre de Coubertin. The last 2km. will be on flat roads (dirt and asphalt) through the countryside with its water channels and lush green nature.

    After returning from the bicycle tour you are able to visit the archeological site of Olympia.

    But not after having enjoyed a picnic with fruits and local products! This way you will have refilled your energy to run on the track in the ancient Stadium!

    ** Extra activities: More detailed historical tour on site by licensed guide
    -extended sightseeing,
    -dinner at home with local family, or cooking lesson with the housewife
