Biking Mt. Parnitha is a full day activity in the National Park of Mount Parnitha. .
For the Biking Mt. Parnitha tour, we will pick you up from your hotel in Athens in the morning and drive to the National Park of Mt. Parnitha, just 1 hour away from the center of Athens. Mt. Parnitha is right outside Athens and the only National Park in Europe located so close to a capital (40km). The National Park of Parnitha is a natural wonder. It is home to 42 species of mammals, among them deer, foxes and a wide variety of birds and Mediterranean plants.
Upon our arrival will have some time to rest and refresh ourselves at our Trekking Hellas base, the Mountain Hut of Bafi. After an equipment check and safety briefing, we hop on our bikes and set off for the mountain trails. Depending on your fitness level and preferences we can plan the ideal route for you! We will make several stops to admire the magnificent view, enjoy the serenity of nature and learn all about the ecosystem of Parnitha.
The tour Biking Mt. Parnitha finishes at the Bafi Mountain Hut. Here we will relax and enjoy a delicious home made Greek meal. Full of memories and new experiences we will return to Athens.
