Not very far from Athens, right in the Saronic Gulf lays the beautiful island of Aegina and a great chance to get out of the city’s noise and traffic since you need only one and a half hour to get there by ferry. Aegina might be close to the city but it gives you the feeling that you ’re very very far away from the urban zone and this is what makes it an excellent choice for a day trip on a bike. One thing you might already know about Aegina is its famous “fistiki”. Large part of the population of the island works at producing and processing this local pistachio which is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product certified by the EU since 1997 and currently considered to be the best in the world. Besides fistiki itself, there is a large variety of pistachio products on the island such as pralines, liquors, traditional sweets and oil.

Our bike route in Aegina is a medium-difficulty route. We’ll start on a flat by-the-sea section followed by a short uphill section that leads to the temple of Aphaia. A truly enjoyable downride will bring us to the fabulous beach of Saint Marina and right after, some uphill will take us through the pine forest as we get on our way back to the port of Aegina.
