Greece. Not only a home to Gods and Monsters but home to rugged mountains, lush forests, clear blue lakes, glorious sunshine, sensational food, mythological history and most importantly fantastic roads to ride our motorcycles on!

You ride a route that takes you on some of the best motorcycling roads in Europe. From the Stelvio pass in Italy to the infamous B500 in Germany and the Aegean coast road along the mediterranean, its back to back iconic motorcycling territory promising to delight riders and pillions alike! This tour is not only jam packed with incredible roads but has more than its fair share of cultural ancient gems such as the Acropolis- a citadel containing several ancient buildings including the Parthenon a former temple dedicated to Athena the goddess of wisdom. We also stop off at the temples of Zeus and Apollo and the ruins of Olympia and Corinth.

How many motorbike tours offer you the opportunity to stand in the best-preserved amphitheatre in the word, where Plato delivered speeches? Or marvel at the architecture of suspended monasteries at Meteora? For a real taste of Greek culture, some beautiful roads and gorgeous weather, get yourself booked onto this fantastic trip!

Highlights of the tour

  • The Stelvio pass: We ride from Flims in Switzerland to lake Garda in Italy via the beautiful Stelvio pass, which at 9,000 ft above sea level allows for incredible views and should be on everyone’s biking bucket list! This road consists of a string of tight hairpins, which are usually totally clear of traffic up to a sleepy beautiful village in the mountains.

  • Ride the Iconic B500: All the roads in the Black forest are steep and twisty and the B500 is no exception. A road that consistently features in the top ten biking roads in the world, its many twists are curves along the forest ridge are exhilarating, and the views are second to none.

  • Ride the Aegean Coast Road: You’ll experience the most spectacular vistas on this road which runs all the way along the Aegean coast. This route is blessed with sublime bends and views out over the turquoise sea of islands on one side and unspoilt little towns on the other- this ride is truly exceptional.

  • Visit the suspended monasteries at Meteora and Athens: These monasteries are surreal and almost alien, like nothing you’ve ever seen before. They’re beautiful ancient monasteries constructed atop towering 1000ft high conical shaped rocks. A sight like this must be seen to be believed.

  • Explore Ancient Olympia: Visit the site of the original olympic games and explore the newly excavated race circuits and stadium, the temple of Zeus full of beautiful sculptures and frescos and the Archimedes museum with full sized replicas of amazing inventions.

  • Visit the Amphitheatre at Epidavrou: A fabulously preserved Greek amphitheatre which seated almost 15 thousand people, every one of whom could hear a whisper from the stage. The acoustics of this amphitheatre are truly astonishing, you can stand on the stage and try it out even now!

  • The Corinth canal: A channel carved 80m deep and 100km long almost a hundred years to join the gulf of Corinth with the Saronic gulf in the Aegean sea. If you’re brave you can even bungee jump off the bridge down into it! Or for those without nerves of steel the views are spectacular.

  • Mount Olympus: Ride around the awesome mount olympus home of the twelve Greek gods. This is the highest mountain in Greece at 3000m and boasts spectacular scenery and beautiful sweeping roads.

  • Athens, Parthenon and Acropolis: Visit ancient Athens and explore the acropolis and the ruins of Hadrian’s library, or relax on the beach by the hotel with a cocktail and some delicious food! This city is a beautiful, noisy hub of culture, history and tourism and these elements combine to make an exciting and unique adventure.
