Glistening waters, enchanting islands, and a mountain biker’s Eldorado await you in the Greek Aegean. In recent years, numerous new trails have been built on the islands and existing historic paths have been maintained. Today you will find an incredibly varied terrain here from natural paths to single trails.
Biking through this MTB paradise is a truly unforgettable experience. The best way to discover the island world of the Aegean is by boat and bike! Pure bliss and plenty of biking fun are guaranteed! The islands are magical and each unique with their own character, rich history, and breath-taking nature. Packing and re-packing your suitcase is a thing of the past!
The comfortable boat is your floating home, restaurant, and means of transport for the week. We explore the wonderful islands of Kos, Nissyros, Tilos and Symi. No off-road trail will be forgotten. The crossings from island to island are one of the tour’s greatest highlights. Wherever possible, the boat anchors in dreamlike bays so that you can jump directly from the boat into the refreshing, blue water.
Relax in quaint bars with a drink in hand as you watch the sun set over the sea. In the evening, take some time to explore the idyllic harbor towns and villages! You could hardly ask for a more varied holiday!
Use the evening hours to enjoy the lively atmosphere in the city of Bodrum and relax with a typical Turkish tea. In the evening a shared dinner on board can be enjoyed in the company of your travel companions and tour guides.
We continue biking through silver-green olive groves to the small village of Etrim. Ancestors of the Turkmen tribes continue to live semi-nomadic lives in the region. We can marvel at their fascinating hand crafts and during a lunch break at a local restaurant we can discover some local cuisine.
After lunch we return to Yaliciftlik where we board the boat and cruise to the island of Kos. A wealth of cultural sights in Kos town provide an insight into the town’s turbulent historical past. The evening can be spent in one of the numerous bars or cafes in the town.
We continue along the ridgeline trail which offers breath-taking panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, quickly making us forget the effort. We then return to the ship along varied trails.
In the afternoon we sail to Mandraki on the volcanic island of Nissyros.
We continue into the fascinating volcanic landscape of Stefanos Crater with its steaming sulphur springs. Afterwards, we take natural paths and a single trail back to the ship in Mandraki. Crossing to the neighbouring island of Tilos.
Afterwards, we continue to the deserted village of Mikrochorio and along a spectacular coastal path back to the ship. After a delicious lunch we can relax on board while we sail to the island of Halki and enjoy the fresh sea breeze.
The picturesque island capital of Chalki offers a first impression of the classic architecture style which we will see on Symi.
Biking up several switchbacks, we slowly conquer the hill, allowing ourselves enough time to enjoy the picturesque views on the way up. Our destination is the island’s capital, Symi, with its classical cityscape and harbor.
In the evening, we can head to the upper part of Symi town. From the top we have a breath-taking view over the harbor and the coastline of the bay. An evening visit to a remote tavern allow us to enjoy the evening away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
We take scenic routes mostly along the coast of the Datça Peninsula to Knidos. After visiting the impressive archaeological site, we cross over to Bodrum. We say farewell to guests, guides, and crew with a festive evening on board.

You will receive more precise information on this in your detailed guest information, which we will send you in plenty of time before the start of the tour.
Sometimes the tour will be run in reverse order. Our tours are dependent on weather conditions and the final decision is that of the captain.
The terrain in this region is very diverse and changes from island to island: technical and demanding single trails alternate with wide gravel 4×4 roads and, on occasion, quiet asphalt stretches; there are very few unrideable passages.
Our tours may be adjusted on site by the guides depending on weather conditions, time schedules and the ability of the group. Various sections in the tour are offered at a higher or lower technical degree, leaving you to make the final decision.
