Not many bikers include Greece in their favorite future motorcycle touring destinations.
We guess that the lack of information is responsible for that, and we will try to give you some good reasons to think about riding in Greece in the future and why you should do it with Odyssey Motorcycle Tours.
Greece is not only islands, sandy beaches and white houses with blue doors. Although Greece has the twelfth longest coastline of the world and a vast number of islands, it is also one of the most mountainous countries of Europe, as it is consist of hills and mountains in a percentage of 80%! (from Wikipedia). Our tours run in mainland Greece and mostly in the North part of the country, covering a variety of areas, from the famous beaches of Halkidiki to the remote mountainous areas of Epirus and the almost unknown areas of Thrace, giving our customers a more complete and realistic picture of Greece.
Everybody knows mousaka, tzatziki and souvlaki, but the Greek kitchen has a lot more to offer. The fresh and local ingredients, lots of vegetable and herbs are used throughout the country, but the tastes differ from the coast to the mountains and from North to South. We believe that food is one of the most important factors of enjoyment during holidays and a great way to come closer to the place you visit, so except from the well known Greek dishes that everybody wants to try, riding with us you will taste real home made food, local recipes and eat with the locals.
We are sure that you know Acropolis and Delfi, but we are also sure that like genuine travellers you would like to see more than what is included in brochures and travel guides. Well, Greece is full of treasures – some of them hidden in remote areas away from tourist routes. Unforgettable archaeological sites like the tomb of Philipp II (father of Alexander the Great) in Vergina, the breathtaking Meteora, the stone bridges of Epirus, the 11th century Byzantine monasteries and hermitages in Prespa lakes and numerous other attractions are waiting for you…
Yes, there are roads like that in Greece – actually lots of them.
There are roads with curves, long sweepers, tight turns and hairpins. Roads by the blue sea, deep in the thick forests, through traditional settlements or with fantastic views – anything you could ever want from a motorcycle tour. We only operate our tours in a part of Greece that we know like the back of our hand – the shortcuts, the tiny roads to the hidden monuments, the best roads for those who like to enjoy a relaxed ride or those who like countless twists and tight turns.
Forget “room to let” or the all inclusive resorts without personal touch. Greek countryside has many options to offer in the area of quality accommodation. There are nice, friendly small hotels with character and lots of beautiful traditional guesthouses that will really make the difference in your tour. As a fully licensed travel agency, we can guarantee the quality of the hotels and guesthouses we use in our tours, as we know the owners in person and we are friends with most of them.
