Add To Plan

Pedal through the charming city of Kos and along the surrounding coastline, taking in the historical sights and fetching natural beauty.

This excursion conveniently begins right at the port, where an all-terrain bicycle will be waiting for you. Pedaling at a leisurely pace is a great way to see the city of Kos and experience the rhythm of life.

The Castle of the Knights of St. John is one of the first attractions that you will pass. It stands as a reminder of the threat of attack in medieval times, although a 15th-century earthquake proved to be the castle’s undoing. It was later restored, around the massive platanos tree out front, which Hippocrates taught under, according to legend. However, the tree is estimated to be 500 years old, so at best it’s a descendant of that tree.

Then, following the bike lanes, you will enter the city’s center to admire an ancient Greek theater, whose entry is flanked by cypress trees. The theater’s half-moon shaped seating and stage are so beautifully excavated you can almost imagine Hippocrates lecturing here on the island where he was born.

Your bike route will also take you along the coast past the picturesque marina and on to Psalidi, a stretch of beach that’s dotted with luxury hotels. Look to the north across the Aegean, and you will spot the Turkish city of Bodrum. Heading back to the pier, you will stop for a beverage at the Spitaki restaurant whch is located next to the marina.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 1/2 hours of easy to moderate cycling. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and a bottle of water from the ship are recommended. Flat, closed-toe shoes are required. Bike helmets will be provided and are mandatory.
