7 nights in comfortable 2 and 3 star hotels and pensions, often located near interesting sights or by the Aegean sea. All rooms have en suite facilities.
All breakfast included.
Distances per day vary from 40km to 60km; there are options to make the days longer if required. There are no transfers to or from hotels on this trip: all the rides are designed to be door-to-door. Road conditions are usually good, but in places the tarmac will be pot-holed and the conditions not quite as good. We aim to use quiet roads where possible, but sometimes we need to pass busy sections in order to reach the quiet roads on the other side. On Day 2 we will be cycling through Athens, where traffic can be intense.

Normal group size and age
Normally 8 to 16, plus cycling leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Most people who enjoy a weekend riding on either trails or roads at home will enjoy a B-grade trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. B-grade off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances on road trips rarely exceed 70 kms (43 miles) per day.
Cycling: Our cycling holidays come in all shapes and sizes; from gentle self-guided trips in the Veneto, to tackling the High Atlas in Morocco, or exploring the length of Vietnam.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
