Scenic Cycling in Nafplion

Scenic Cycling in Nafplion

Cycle through the ancient and modern picturesque neighborhoods of Nauplion, while taking in the scenic surroundings on your mountain bike.
Start your cycling excursion from the lighthouse of the picturesque harbor of Nafplio. Follow your guide on the paved path and under the walls of Acronafplia, the long narrow rocky peninsula which enters into the Gulf of Argolis. Here you will admire the five canons from the Venetian period of the Nauplion occupation. Continuing on, pass by Panagitsa Church which served as a secret school during the Ottoman occupation. A few moments from there you will arrive at Arvanitia Beach, where you transfer to a dirt road for 2.5km until reaching Karathona Beach. On the left side you will be able to enjoy views of Palamidi Castle and on your right side take in the views of the sea with the high mountains of the Peloponnese, namely Artemision and Parnonas in the background.

Upon arrival at Karathona Beach, you will cycle another 2.5 km across the beach and under the shadows of the eucalyptus trees. When you arrive at the picturesque church with wooden benches and a shaded roof, you’ll find this is a perfect place to pause for a short refreshment while enjoying the sea views.

Afterwards, hop back on your bike for the return to Nauplion town where you have the option to extend your cycling tour for another 4 km cycling through the old and modern neighborhoods of the town; or return directly to the pier and your yacht.
