Description of the excursion
Explore Thassos like never before with our 4-day sailing and e-biking adventure! Discover the island’s stunning landscapes and hidden gems as you sail around its coast and bike through its picturesque countryside.
Day 1: Welcome on board! Pick your cabin and off we go! We’ll start in the north, where you’ll be greeted by thick pine forests and secluded beaches. We’ll visit famous beaches of the North such as Marble Beach, Porto Vathi, and Vathi and have time to relax and snorkel in crystal-clear waters. Our experienced crew will teach you the basics of sailing, such as handling the sails and steering the boat. In the afternoon, we’ll
head back to Limenas port to watch the sunset and experience the island’s capital, with its unique blend of modern buildings and ancient ruins. End the day with a delicious dinner and a taste of the island’s nightlife.
Day 2: Fuel up with breakfast and get ready for a day of adventure! Sail to the northeast and visit Golden Beach, with its soft sandy shores and the stunning backdrop of the highest mountain on the island, Ypsario. Time for adventure! After a brief from your MTB guide, hop on your e-bike and discover forested hills, hidden waterfalls and ancient ruins. Our first cycling excursion is just around the corner.
Starting from the beach of Chrysis Ammoudia we cross the entire coastline for 5 kilometers which is also our warm-up. Then we head towards the mountain and soon our ascent to the traditional settlements of Potamia and Panagia begins . We enjoy our traditional coffee in the center of Panagia and start our return through the forest at the foot of Ypsario. Surely the vegetation will reward us as we cross an amazing forest of pines, century-old plane trees and chestnuts.
End of our first cycling excursion of a total length of 30 kilometers.
After a day of riding, get back on the boat to visit beautiful bays and swim in turquoise water. If weather permits, we’ll sail to Aliki beach on the east of the island and anchor offshore overnight, giving you the chance to experience a sky full of bright stars and the sounds of nature. If weather prevents it, we’ll return to Thassos town port.
Day 3: After a breakfast on board, our crew will teach you advanced sailing techniques and give you the opportunity to put your new skills to the test. Sail to the south and explore old marble quarries, steep cliffs, and caves submerged in the water. After sailing and swimming, take an e-bike tour through the southern countryside, visiting traditional villages and sample local cuisine. Start at the seaside village of Skala Marion.
Οur second e-bike ride has just started and get ready for a day that includes it all. From artificial lakes and waterfalls to taverns in abandoned settlements. A challenging route of about 40 kilometers that will reward you with the complexity of the terrain and points of interest.
End the day in Limenaria, on the southern coast, where you can walk through charming alleys, taste local cuisine, and enjoy sea views at waterfront restaurants.
Day 4: Start the day with a dive in a secret bay and sail along the West coast, admiring small fishing villages and hills full of olive trees. Our final destination is Thassos town (Limenas) port, where your last ride of the trip will start. Many can visit but few can cycle beside the clear blue waters of marble beach.
Our route starts from the old port of Thassos and soon we are traveling parallel to the coastline. A friendly route until our arrival at the golden coast bay and our ascent to the village of Panagia. Next stop Drakotrypa. A quick passage through the dragon’s cave and we continue to Limenas. A technical and demanding passage leads us to the ancient theater and back to our boat for rest. Estimated route 35
