This mountain trip lasts about 3 hours and is ideal to get your mountain boost for the day. You will be cycling mostly on tarmac ,only two distances on unpaved road, and you will enjoy a downhill ride of 30 km that consists of minimum uphills.
We meet early in the morning at our base in Trapezaki and we start driving up to mountain Ainos. As we go higher the views get better and better since we reach the highest peak of Mount Ainos, 1620 m. Mount Ainos is a National Park and is covered with Greek fir and black pine. From there we can admire the view that literally takes your breath away! We start cycling in the National Park and down to Saint Gerasimos valley. After stopping several times to admire the views and take photos , we cycle through vineyards and we reach Old Valsamata village ,where we stop to see the ruins of the village that was destroyed after the earthquake of 1953. We leave the village and we cycle to Saint Gerasimos monastery . The monastery is definitely a place worth visiting!From here , there is a road skirting Mount Ainos and finishing up at Vlahata village and our base.
