Cycling in Olympia

Get on our new high quality mountain bicycles and join this tour!Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games, a once in a lifetime destination!

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.

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.

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.
