Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need previous experience?

Yes, the ability to ride a bicycle is required. Even if you do not have previous experience with an e-bike it is necessary to be confident riding a bike. It is suggested to have ridden a bike recently, and not just know the skills since your childhood. The E-Bike Tour Kalamata is easy to perform since you have basic cycling skills. 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 e-biking tour 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 e-biking tour?

Kids from 10 may join a standard group trip or a private trip. We always walk with kids at a relaxed pace allowing them to learn and have fun.

What kind of fitness level do I need to take part?

Relatively good physical condition is required. Keep in mind that the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the journey. We’ll take plenty of breaks and walk at an achievable pace.

What is the size of a group?

From 2 participants up to 12 people on our standard group trips. Most of our groups consist of couples, families and individuals. We can also cater to smaller groups on private trips.

What is the trip best suited for me, how do I choose?

All of our trips are designed to be suitable for everybody. Each one has its own unique characteristics. The best way to choose a trip among others is to check which one departs closer to the place you are staying.

Do you offer private trips?

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. Private trips really work best with groups of experienced hikers or groups of friends who want to do something a bit different, would like to do a more advanced journey or just want to have privacy and enjoy the trip just themselves.

Is lunch provided?

Yes, simple, nutritious, and flavorsome, the food is one of the pleasures during our trips. Halfway we make a relaxing stop at a nice place to taste a picnic with freshly baked bread, organic garden-grown fruits and vegetables, homemade olive oil, and cheese.

What route will we take?

We usually perform our tours within a certain route aiming to visit the most beautiful spots each trip has to offer however; your guide is likely to choose an alternative route that suits the conditions on the day and the experience and needs of the group. This is the safest and best way to operate hiking trips.

At Explore Messinia, we are committed to promoting sustainable tourism and preserving the natural beauty of the landscape for future generations. Our e-bike tours embody this green character in several meaningful ways. By using electric bikes, we reduce reliance on fossil fuels, ensuring minimal emissions and a quieter, more eco-friendly way to explore the region.

Firstly, we provide eco-friendly and sustainable equipment. Our e-bikes are designed using high-quality, durable materials intended to have a minimal environmental impact

We strongly encourage all participants to bring a reusable water bottle to minimize the use of plastic throwaways. Hydration is crucial, but it doesn’t have to come at the expense of our planet’s health. Refillable bottles can be topped up before departure to ensure you have ample water for the journey.

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond equipment and personal habits. We integrate environmental stewardship into our activities. During our tours, guides will provide space and bags for small clean-ups, encouraging participants to help maintain and even improve the condition of the places we visit. We ask everyone to collect any plastic or other debris encountered along the way, ensuring that we leave the locations better than we found them.

By following these sustainable practices, together we can ensure that the stunning landscapes we explore remain undisturbed and that our e-bike tours continue to be eco-friendly and enriching for all.
