#athensriviera #glyfada #Sightseeing
About 50 sea turtles are treated annually and when fully recovered, released back to the sea
Welcome at a very particular tour. It’s the first of our new range Solebike Natura Tours. It combines our work to support sustainable tourism and respect the natural environment, along with a lovely cycling experience to the Athenian Riviera.
Our destination is the cosmopolitan Glyfada at the Archelon Sea Turtle Rescue Centre which operates with volunteers from all over the world, donations and sponsorships.
During our visit there we enjoy a guided tour by a Centre Host and learn a lot about the sea turtle’s life.
A delightful bike trip with environmental impact!at
Good to know

What to expect
Meet, Greet and Oriented
Your guide welcomes you and make sure you get familiar with your equipment and you sit comfortable on the eBike. You will be asked to make a test ride making sure you are OK with bike handling. At next step your guide gives you a brief description of the tour itinerary.
A beautiful ride to the coast
One of the most exciting ways to ride from the historical centre to the coast. The ride brings us among some typical districts of Athens that were developed during the early industrial period of the city.
The sea side
During this part of our trip, we cycle along the coast sometimes on bike and pedestrian ways, sometimes close to sea and some on traffic road. This part includes many of the 2004 Olympic venues.
Archelon Rescue Centre
At the end of the first half of our cycling trip we arrive to our destination. The host of the center will offer us a guided tour to the facilities and we’ll meet the sympathetic sea turtles that are treated in the centre.
After leaving the centre, we have included some leisure time at the beach. We prepare a picnic for the team and you are welcome to take a swim before we start cycling back.
