A guided cycling exploration of a unique ecosystem with a swim and pic-nic stop in the most iconic beach.


E-Bike Tour Navarino Trail

Gialova lagoon in south Peloponnese is one of the most important wetlands and the southernmost one not only in Greece but Europe hosting numerous species of endemic and migratory birds. Within short distance from Pylos and the legendary Nestor Palace, the lagoon is also near the famous omega shape beach of Voidokilia. A unique place due to its evergreen charm and ecosystem the area attracts naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world.

Our cycling trip starts from the town of Gialova. We cycle partly on flat local gravel and asphalt roads, among significantly old olive tree farms, descending all the way to the coastline, reaching the spectacular site of the Gialova Lagoon. We traverse the lagoon home to 270 bird species in Greece through a narrow gravel road. Here, we may have the opportunity to use our binoculars and watch from a close distance a flock of flamingos resting at the shallow waters of the lagoon. Riding through dunes we reach the famous Voidokilia Beach. An option here is to have a stop for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. After a refreshing swim we enjoy by the beach a delicious picnic of local delicacies before heading back to the town of Gialova.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need previous experience?

No, many of our customers are first-timers. The Hiking Polylimnio Waterfalls trip is easy to catch up and beginners can complete a decent journey on their first-time cycling trip. All of our trips are about journeying. We cycle at a relaxed pace; we learn on the move and enjoy the natural environment. If you are a group of experienced riders wanting to complete a demanding journey then a private trip would be the best option.

Is this cycling trip suitable for families with kids?

Absolutely Yes! A cycling trip is a wonderful way for your child to explore the outdoors. There are so many reasons to love a cycling trip with kids. Watching them gain confidence when outdoors, gives them the chance to see places from a different perspective, teaching them about the natural environment.

What is the minimum age for a kid to join this hiking trip?

Should I book a standard trip or a private trip?

If you are happy to hike with a mixed group or don’t want to spend as much money then booking a standard group trip is the best way to go.

What route will we take?

This is the safest and best way to operate hiking trips.
