We believe in alternative ways of discovering the world.
In addition to taking guests around the well-known sights on Rhodes, a cosmopolitan island popular with tourists, we discover untouched land where the scenery alternates rapidly under the deep blue of the Greek sky, beside charming beaches and crystal clear waters.
We take our guests on a tour of certain alternative aspects of our ‘home’ and enjoy the ride with them.
We chose a means of transport that respects the environment. The mountain bikes we provide our guests with are tailored to the rider’s body type and are cutting edge products from the bicycle industry. All guests are also provided with safety gear.
The only motor vehicles we use are our jeeps that we use to pick up guests and drop them off at the airport, and to get quickly to the medieval city of Rhodes and the ancient acropolis of Lindos.
We pay particular attention to the location of our accommodation which is about 5’ walking distance or 2’ by bicycle from the outstanding Gennadi Beach and from Lachania Beach on southern Rhodes. Silence reigns supreme here and the accommodation is surrounded by the sea.
We chose the site of the accommodation to allow any friends who don’t want to follow the full schedule to do their own thing, either at the complex enjoying the swimming pools and grounds, or in the nearby village.
