Based out of Kalamata our standard Messinian tour is a 6-day mix of routes based around the peninsula. It is designed for riders that want to focus on riding time. Mountain of Taygetos and the back roads of the peninsula will play a prominent role with a full summit to sea experience of mountains and beaches.
This trip is about the backroads of Missinia, one of the most lush and gifted areas of Greece. A classic mediterranean site in full majesty it brings together summits and climbs with routes down to the beach. This tour can be adjusted from intermediate to advanced levels, but our preferred routes are around 80-100km days with optional rest time.
Highlights include the peninsula coastal round trip, technical ascends of Thouria and Mount Taygetos, and some spectacular Mani riding. We’ll be moving through the landscape and staying in two amazing locations. Our production team and support will be offering assistance when needed and certain days will be joined by local pacers for some newly added sections.
