This is a route that combines biking and hiking. We can start the tour either from Petra or Molyvos. The road will take us first at the watermills of Ligona.

In the old days the springs gave their power to the watermills. They are hidden deep in the Ligonas canyon. The plane tree forest is impressive lying on the slopes of the canyon along with lava formations due to volcanic activity which formed the area millions of years ago.

The route towards Molyvos and Petra is easy for the experienced off road bikers and challenging for the ones who wish to try it. The view from the Molyvos castle is breathtaking and biking in the paved streets of Petra and Molyvos are magical.

Price: 40 Euro with at least 3 participants (50 Euro with two, 80 Euro with one)
Bike, helmet, bottle of water and consumption along the track included.
