Mountain Cycling in Tzoumerka
Since our childhood the bike was our favorite toy. The mountain bike trails in Tzoumerka are suitable for all those who have kept their love for it and never felt more fatigue than joy. The changes in the landscape and in the terrain, the mood for playing and exploring, the acquaintance with our villages in another way and from another route are included in the cyclist's particular quests.
For both your short and family rides, as well as for more sporty and demanding routes, Via Natura, besides the experienced and always friendly escort, can provide you with rental bikes and helmets depending on the route you choose.
Get in touch with us and ask us about everything without any hesitation.
Kypseli - Waterfall - Plaka route
We transfer in our van until after the village of Kypseli and start with our bikes on a dirt road to cross the village of Skiades with its stone fountains, where we will have our first short stop for a light snack. Next comes the travertine on the west side of Tzoumerka at the beginning above Kypseli and we continue heading north through the pine and fir forest with a beautiful view to Tzoumerka mountains on our right, until we reach the village of Katarraktis. Another break in the green square and we head down to the base of Via natura on the Arachthos River on the Plaka Bridge. Warm shower in our facilities and relaxation with tsipouro to keep you company are the best way to end this fascinating excursion.
Faneromeni - Platanoussa - Plaka route
We meet at the base of Via natura on the bridge of Plaka and after about 40 minutes drive in our van we reach the village of Faneromeni. The view is breathtaking even when driving by car. Through the village we ride our bikes up an alpine landscape, crossing the ridge of Xirovouni for a while and on its west side, heading north while overlooking the artificial lake of Purnari and the Arachthos valley, we reach Platanoussa. We take a break for a small snack and cold water in the square and then we take the easy way up to the Plaka Bridge for a slow recovery. A warm shower in our facilities along with lots of tsipouro will compensate for any fatigue you may feel…
We begin from the Tzari Bridge, next to Arachthos River, heading north, on the Vidra Trail!!! On a fantastically cleaned path, for which we are at a loss for words to speak, begins the climbing up with our bikes until the central square of the broom. It is necessary to relax and have a snack for a playful downhill on the banks of Arachthos’ river. There, the bold ones are welcome to dive and afterwards we return to our base with our means of transport.
An absolutely fun mountain bike ride in Tzoumerka, on trails and forest roads, mostly downhill, from Kipseli village to Anemorrachi village, literally at the edge of the artificial Lake. In dense wild vegetation, where the green and the strange geological formations absolutely dominate, our brakes will be on fire, until we reach the village cafe where we will have traditional snacks and tsipouro waiting for us.
