Distance: 32 km
Road surface: 41% asphalt, 59% trail
Difficulty level: moderately difficult
Route type: A route through rocky landscape with views over Vourvourou.
Overview: For the first third, you cycle from Vourvourou along the coast. From there you ascend up onto the ridge. The reason to come here is really for the amazing views. On the ridge you can get a full 360 panorama of the Holomondas mountains north of Sithonia, the Vourvourou islands, and of course the towering Mt. Athos. You will also come across numerous beehives on this trail, as it’s the main honey center by Nikiti. Going back requires some skill, as parts can be steep and sandy. You end back on the beach in Vourvourou, the perfect end to your ride.
