Leonidio-Plaka-LakkosΛεωνίδιο - Πλάκα - Λάκκος

Cycling route: Leonidio-Plaka-Lakkos


Leaving Hatzipanagiotis’ mansion, prepare to relish an exciting route in an enchanting landscape where the sea, the plain and the majestic red rocks coexist in perfect harmony. Make sure that your bike is in good condition; take the appropriate equipment-helmet and water- and ride away!

Follow the downhill and reach at Plaka without special effort. Try not to be lured by the view of the harbor and the quaint tavernas. Turn left and at the end of the pedestrian walkway left again to continue cycling through the plain of Leonidio. Follow the winding route and do not take any of the detours because they lead back to the main road Leonidio-Plaka.

Pausanias called Leonidio “Dionysus’ Garden” and when you see the vegetables, the oranges and the mandarins you will realize that he didn’t exaggerate at all! Don’t hesitate to stop and taste the fruit. You can also talk with the willing farmers who will be glad to show you their crop and especially the eggplant of Tsakonia. Continue cycling carefully through the torrent Dafnonas.

You are at Lakkos. After the dry torrent, at the first intersection turn left and go straight to find the main road Leonidio-Astros which is 3km away. The signs will help you on your way back.
