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 18 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 are available 6 days a week from 8.30am to 6.30pm.  Later in the season (mid to late October) due to daylight saving hours these times may differ slightly. On Saturdays, bike timings will differ, please ask the bike team in resort. 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 Tsambika Chapel Hill Climb
Course category Challenging
Terrain Hills; tarmac and gravel. Climb is intense
Experience Experienced
Distance 15km
Duration 1.5 hours

The Chapel of Tsambika sits atop the mountain that can be seen from Levante if one looks along the coast to the South.  It is an extremely tough climb to the top but the tremendous views from the top are worth the effort.  

At the top of the hill, riders can relax with a coffee or ice-cream and enjoy the view over Afandou bay before climbing the 200 steps to the quaint and picturesque chapel.  An extremely fast and exhilharating descent follows all the way back to Levante.
