Mountain biking at Levante Beach Resort

Experience the local area on two wheels, its varied terrain is suitable for all abilities and level of rider: the long flat sea-front roads of Afandou Bay contrast brilliantly with the tough climbs and exhilarating descents offered by the surrounding hills around Kalithies and Psinthos.

Our fleet of adult mountain bikes offer those over 17 years the chance to get out and explore, solo or as part of a group tour. We are happy for our younger guests (13 to 17 years) to join in if they can comfortably fit onto an adult bike and into a helmet, all we ask is that a parent or guardian accompanies them. 

Free to hire or join a group tour

Mountain bikes can be borrowed daily from 8am through to 6pm. Helmets are provided and we ask that you wear these at all times when out cycling.

Our resident mountain bike guide leads a range of guided tours throughout the week, with something for all levels of rider and physical fitness. Choose from easy-going flat road cycles to more technical off-road downhill riding.

Easy / Moderate tour

 Sample tour - Springs 

Course Seven Springs
Course category Easy / moderate
Terrain Flat and hills; tarmac
Experience Beginner / intermediate
Distance 18km
Duration 2 hours

Seven Springs is a valley that flows with clear springs and is covered with enormous pine trees. It's roughly 10km from Levante. On leaving the resort, riders head through the town of Kolymbia then head east down a long avenue flanked either side by tall trees.

After crossing the main coast road, riders undertake roughly 5km of climbing to Seven Springs where they can dismount and enjoy a walk around the Epta Piges.

Moderate tour

Sample tour - Chapel 

Course Chapel of St Georgios
Course category Moderate
Terrain Flat and hills; tarmac and gravel
Experience Intermediate
Distance 20km
Duration 2 hours

The tour begins with a 4km flat warm-up.  The route heads north through the town of Afandou, passing the town square and church. Next is a 5km intense tarmac climb, once at the top of the hill the surface changes to gravel as you descend through forest tracks.

After passing the quaint chapel of Saint Georgios the tarmac riding resumes through the town of Kalithies, passing the local football stadium on the right. 

The hard work put in on the initial climb is rewarded with a long and fast asphalt descent and pan flat finale along the promenade of Afandou Bay.

Challenging tour

Sample tour - Hill climb

Course Psalidokambos Hill Climb
Course category Challenging
Terrain Hills; tarmac and gravel. Climb is intense
Experience Experienced
Distance 25km
Duration 2 hours

This challenging tour offers both intense climbing and exhilarating technical descents. The radio mast on the summit of the climb can be seen from Levante if one looks to the north west from the beach.

Similarly to the medium tour, the route initially heads through the town of Afandou but then leaves the main road, passing the army barracks before beginning the tough slog over gravel surface to the top of the hill. 

Some technical off-road descending follows before finishing with the long and fast asphalt descent to Afandou Bay. This is a very physical challenge that requires a good standard of fitness.
