FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO MYTHICAL ROUTES HAVE A TRAVEL GUARANTEE?

Book with confidence. All tours are coverage for risks according to travel directive (ΕΕ) 2015/2302 and insured for Civil Liability by a third party according to EU law 339/96, but we highly recommend a travel insurance policy that not only covers medical expenses and repatriation but also covers your personal belongings and liability. In all non-EU tours and expeditions, it is a mandatory requirement that each participant has their own travel insurance policy.

HOW DO I BOOK A TOUR?

Just visit your favorite Adventure Tour and follow the instructions. If nothing is exactly as you wish, you can simply contact us, or opt for a Custom Tour tailored to your needs. Once all is set, you will need to deposit a payment amounting to 30% of the total travel cost is due immediately after receiving the travel confirmation and email us with a copy of your passport and EU or International drivers license for US citizents.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

You can can withdraw from the travel contract at any time prior to the commencement of the journey. The tour operator is entitled to lump-sum indemnities considering normally saved expenses and possible other utilization of the travel services. For a complete list of down payments, withdrawal by the client, cancellation, transfers, substitute persons, visit our Terms of Participation.

CAN I JOIN WITH MY OWN MOTORCYCLE?

Any adventure or dual-sport motorcycle that is road registered and carries a license plate runs DOT approved knobby tires (off-road tours) and has a fuel range of minimum 240km is suitable for our tours. You can also ship your motorcycle and we can help you organize logistics and motorcycle storage. For more information and to make arrangments simply contact us.

ARE ALL THE ROUTES PRE-PLANNED?

Our tours are pre-planned and have off-road and on-road sections, but within our itineraries, there is always a place for flexibility. Depending on your needs, skills and/or weather conditions we offer the possibility to choose from different tracks. Lodging is always prearranged, so you know where we’ll be at the end of the day.

CAN I GET TRIP SHORTENS OR EXTENSIONS?

Our tour itinerary is calculated according to our riding days. If you book a minimum of three (3) participants, it is possible to variate the tour duration and itinerary. Maybe it is a good idea to book a Custom Tour instead and have it designed accordingly for your needs. In any case, you can just contact us and we will help you as best as we can.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO RIDE “TWO-UP” / WITH A PILLION?

All On-road Tours can be ridden "two-up", but this is not an option for Off-road Tours. However, we can arrange for a support vehicle, so that your partner can also join (limited places available).

WHAT ANCIENT GREEK HISTORICAL SITES WILL WE VISIT?

We will be visiting all important Hellenic archeological sites, both famous UNESCO World Heritage sites and well-hidden ancient treasures. Our tour leaders are the most scientifically qualified motorcycle guides in Greece. For more information on the ancient architectural sites we are visiting, please visit History.

HOW DIFFICULT IS RIDING ON YOUR OFF-ROAD TOURS?

All our routes are designed with the average rider in mind, so there are no single-tracks, and all tracks can be ridden on anything from the KTM 690 Enduro to the BMW R1200GSA. Many tracks are in remote areas and reach a high elevation where road maintenance is minimal if non-existent. You can expect to cover sections of the road with deep ruts, loose rocks, and other challenges. You may also encounter sections that have trees or branches over the road.

COULD YOU HELP A NEW RIDER IN OFF-ROAD TOURS?

If you are new to off-road riding or getting rusty from long winters, we can arrange for some Off-Road Training before departure.

WHAT ABOUT WILD ANIMALS?

Greece is one of the safest countries concerning wild animals, with only a very small number of brown bears, wolves, and vipers. Also, 95% of snakes in Greece are completely harmless, but keep your distance, since antivenom treatment is very hard to find in remote locations.

ADVENTURE TOUR GRADING

EASY

Image

Easy tours (Level 1) are accessible to most people with an average level of fitness and average mobility. We ride asphalt-paved roads in fair condition and normal altitudes. On certain routes, we ride on coastal or mountain roads that are easily accessible, with varying landscapes, but we may also have to travel on easy dirt roads (less than 5% of the tour) or at high altitudes with varying weather conditions for a few days.

We ride up to 6 hours/day for most days and you must be comfortable handling a 200 kg motorcycle. Tours may involve sightseeing on foot, some climbing of stairs and getting on and off boats.

INTERMEDIATE

Image

Intermediate tours (Level 2) require a higher level of fitness since we ride asphalt-paved roads and slate-paved paths, but for the most part of the route we ride challenging roads and gravel roads in various conditions, depending on the weather. There are no single-tracks in these tours. We ride for more than 6 hours/day for the most part of the tour.

You must have some experience in off-road riding and must be comfortable handling a 200 kg motorcycle. Tours can include longer periods of sightseeing and easy walking. High altitude and overnight adventure camps may feature.

HARD

Hard tours (Level 3) require advanced riding abilities and a good level of fitness, as they are physically more demanding. We ride asphalt-paved roads and slate-paved paths, but for the most part of the route, we ride challenging gravel roads at high altitudes with varying weather conditions. River crossings and single tracks may feature.

We ride for more than 8 hours/day for the most part of the tour and night riding may feature. You must be an experienced rider and ride off-road regularly. Tours may involve hiking to remote, high altitude areas where facilities are less developed and overnight adventure camps may feature.
