Mountain Biking. How you come to the area?

The Mt. Kissavos Mountain Biking routes. 

Where we meet:  For this activity we meet either at our base (Mt. Kissavos activities center) or at the nearby Arioprino location or at the village of Stomio, depending upon the biking route we are about to do. We can even pick you up at your accommodation / hotel, if you wish. This can be arranged at an extra cost.

How you come to the above meeting places: If you travel from the south in the Athens – Thessaloniki highway, you come off at the exit to Omolio, Stomion, Karytsa and the coast, at the eastern end of Tempi valley (you enter the valley from the west), just before the bridge over the Pinios river. Accordingly, if you travel from the north, you come off at the same exit, just after you have passed overthe Pinios river bridge to the left. Go through Omolion (3 km after the exit off the highway) and another 7 km lead you to Stomion. You bypass Stomion and you start going uphill towards Karytsa. Note that after bypassing Stomion the road splits. Make sure that you take the road on the right to Karytsa (the left road goes along the coast, while the one to Karytsa continues uphill).

To come to our base (Mt. Kissavos activities center), one kilometer before Karytsa, you come across the hotel Dohos situated on the left side of the road. Just after passing the hotel, turn right to Spilia and Aeroprino. There is an “Olympos Trek” sign at this turning as well. In another 3.1 km, you arrive at the picnic area and café / restaurant at “Aeroprino” location. At this point you take the dirt road on your right, following the “Olympos Trek" sign, to reach our base (another “Olympos Trek sign”) in another 2.6 km.

The Olympus Mountain Biking routes.

Where we meet, how you come: For the biking routeson lower Mt. Olympus, our meeting takes place in the villages Palei Pori or Paleos Panteleimon, on the mountain slopes above the Thessaloniki – Larisa highway at about where Platamon resort is (that's where the exits to the two villages are). Depending upon the route we are going to do, we decide before hand in which of the two villages we meet.

It will help: Most detailed and useful is the “Kissavos and Tempi” map of “Anavasi” editions, as well as the map in our web site.
