Vafkeri Summit!

Ride Stats

Distance: 26km / Elevation Gain: 935m / Calories Burnt: 1500

Depending on the group we can take either an on or off road climb to the traditional mountain village of Vafkeri. Admiring the panoramic views on the ascent, the elusive village eventually comes in to sight and we make a well deserved stop for refreshments. From the village we climb higher past the derelict monastery of Agia Assomati until we reach the summit and time for a panoramic photo stop! We begin the rugged descent on fire road and continue onto singletrack following some ancient rocky footpaths known as ‘monopati’, past the Sfaedes Springs and a deserted village. The trail emerges at the foot of Nidri waterfalls where we have to carry bikes for the final few metres (we’re working on this final part of the trail!). We stop at one of our favourite cafes shaded under the plane tree for a refreshing drink before returning to the town and our meeting point.
