Tour Program

A wonderful 3-day excursion that includes the most popular parts of Tzoumerka explored on electric bikes on routes with breathtaking views, hiking between the twin noble villages of Kalarrites and Sirrako, a visit to the unique Anemotrypa cave and the “Panagia Sumela of Greece”, the monastery of Kipina.

Meeting in the village of Tsopelas and check-in at the hotel. This day includes a short half-hour ride to the nearby village of Melissourgoi as well as a very interesting visit to the eponymous stone workshop of Mr. George; the first Greek who studied, designed and manufactured ancient Greek musical instruments and jewelry. In the evening, dinner at a local tavern. Overnight.
After breakfast, we depart on the electric bikes for the neighboring village of Pramanta. After half an hour we arrive at the unique Anemotrypa cave where our guide gives us the necessary details of the cave. The cave has three levels and is the only cave in Greece that has a river running through it along its entire length. After our tour, we depart for the Kipina Monastery, one of the most impressive monasteries in Greece, built 8 centuries ago inside a hidden rock. We arrive at the monastery after an hour through a wonderful route.After visiting the interior of the monastery, we continue on our electric bikes and in 10 minutes we make our longest stop to enjoy our picnic next to a dreamy landscape at the Kouiasa waterfalls. After relaxing in this hidden paradise, we depart for the last 30 minutes to Kalarrites, the beautiful village where we spend the night. Check in at our guesthouse. The evening is worth a walk in the village and dinner in a traditional tavern. Overnight.
Our day today begins with a 3km hike on a path that was used many years ago by the Epirot merchants of the area with their caravans. We go down to the gorge of the Chrousia river and then up to Sirrako, one of the most beautiful villages of Epirus. In the picturesque square of the village where cars are prohibited, we drink coffee and taste traditional sweets. Afterwards, we get on the electric bikes again and take the road back to the village of Tsopela, where our tour ends.

Amazing bike tours not to be missed. 5th to the 9th of May. Cycle tour of Zagori Tour of Zagori 5th to the 9th of May I had started writing a detailed description of the tour that we carried out on the bikes into Zagori between the 5th and the 9th of May. So impressed were we on the completion of that tour that I had just finished my first complete page of my review and realised that it would be very long and that I should shorten It. The bottom line is that we had the most astonishing time. The scenery was beautiful, the information that our guide (Lefteris) gave us was extremely detailed and interesting. It was absolutely clear to us that he had a great pride in his local area and the penultimate stop on this tour was in his local town. I had made the misconception of thinking that riding in central Greece would be a very dry and dusty place. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have visited the Grand Canyon in Arizona and the scenery that we saw during our tour, there was by far and away more spectacular than that. Every day on the tour was planned with great precision and our stopping point were always extremely interesting. Coupled with that every day lunch was provided for us and I have to say it was always incredible. Home-made food produced and laid out beautifully and incredibly scenic places. We could not have wanted for more. Every night we stayed in a different accommodation and each and everyone of them had its own individual character. Once again, we could not have chosen better places to stop. Every night we were taken out to a local restaurant and bar and the food that we ate during our four days was simply delicious. The silver lining around this particular cloud was that we did not have to pay for any of it and it was incorporated into our tour. As such the tour itself was incredibly good value and we are looking forward to going back to Greece again and do a different tour in another location. We cannot recommend the two are highly enough. We are also completely converted on the idea of E bikes! . Even though we did basically incredible climbs up mountains, the fact that we were on an E bike made it, whilst not very easy, easy enough that even though we had not ridden for a while, doing amazing climbs in the mountains was easily achievable. Our guides, Lefteris and Chara were simply delightful, and every day in the company was a great pleasure. I would not hesitate to recommend this cycling tour to anybody. If I had to give it a rating it would be a massive 5 stars and we cannot wait to do it again.

Such a perfect day We spent a wonderful day in Zagoi area, riding from a village to another village, trekking and swimming in a beautiful waterfall. We enjoyed everything: the delicious picnic, the ride under the rain and under the sun, the walk the fall, the visit of the open air museum. Lefteris and Chara are so good in organizing the trips, explaining things and telling the stories and they have a good heart. You can’t loose an experience like this. ❤️

Highlight of our trip to Epirus Who says that Greece is just beaches and archeological sites? Booked a trip with Lefteris and Hara via their site and must say from the beginning they went out of their way to put together the best excursion for us. They were helpful, accommodating, sensitive to our needs and extremely thoughtful. Excellent communication in planning our trip was the key. They both met us at the beginning of the tour , went through the plan of the day and were open to questions. We had a wonderful time biking with Lefteris for a bit less than 40 km with the help of the e bikes provided Had coffee and lemonade in Papigo and ended the tour with an excellent lunch on the next to river.( the pictures is of our hosts) Top notch, we couldn’t have expected better Highly recommended and a must !
