On a cycling holiday in Greece with Headwater you'll be based in the Peloponnese, the Greece of myth and legend: Hera bathed in the Carathus spring near Epidavros/Epidaurus; Poseidon hit the ground with his trident and created a spring in Athens; the attack against Troy was led from Mycenae. Everywhere its glorious past seems to overwhelm you: fragments of temples by roadsides, upended capitals in sweet-smelling meadows, ancient stone bridges leading to hillside monasteries.
Aside from being the cradle of Greek civilisation, the countryside here is astoundingly beautiful too. On a cycling holiday in Greece with Headwater you’ll visit the main sites, but also be rewarded with breathtaking scenery: thick pine forests, green vineyards, mountain streams and meadows bright with scarlet tulips and wild iris.
Our week of guided cycling is a journey through fascinating classical history and a superb variety of landscapes, from the azure blue of the sea to the green olive trees and vineyards of the heart of Greece.
