Forest Route

The tour starts off near the village of Monolithos on the west coast of the island. After a short ascent and some flat sections on dirt roads we find ourselves in the middle of the forest. While cycling, we can enjoy spectacular views of the west coast and nearby islands.

There is a short rest break at a small church that dates from the 15th century and a chance to learn about nature and the local traditions of Rhodes. Following the forest roads, we then pass by a recently excavated archaeological site.

We continue along an asphalt road through small villages till we reach Apolakkia Dam. After having our snack at the dam, we continue cycling to a nearby beach where the tour ends.
