(approx. 20-30km, 450-600 elevation meters, Level 2)


The Greek island Kos is only a few nautical miles away from Bodrum, making it an ideal excursion destination for anyone spending their holiday in Bodrum or the surrounding area.

A mountain biking day trip to Kos from Bodrum can be easily organised thanks to the daily ferry connections, and as with the island having so much to offer it is definitely worthwhile. Cycle Turkey offers guided MTB day tours on Kos, starting and ending in Bodrum.

In the last few years, an extensive trail network has been built on Kos, making it a dream-destination for mountain bikers from all around the world. The mountain rising behind the town of Kos is covered in lush forests and has the ideal terrain for an incredible biking experience, be it on the technically demanding paths or the wonderful flow trails. The route can be adapted to suit the riding preferences of the participants. If you love mountain biking, you are sure to fall in love with Kos!

The minimum number of participants is 4. If the number of participants is not reached, 4 pax fee will be charged.

Culture: Biking through typical Turkish villages will give you an authentic insight into the everyday life and culture of the people and their country.
Nature: The Bodrum Peninsula is an enchanting paradise with its magnificent forests, fantastic nature trails and spectacular beaches.
Activity: Along the way there will be the opportunity to have a refreshing swim in the clear, blue sea.

8:30am – The meeting point for the tour is in front of the St. Peter Fortress in Bodrum. Here you will be given your rental gear (MTB, rucksack, helmet for rent). Your rental bike will be adjusted to you with the help of our experienced guides. This will be followed by a safety briefing and a detailed explanation of the planned bike tour.

9:30am – Crossing to the island of Kos. The bike tour begins in Kos town and leads through fragrant pine forest on gently ascending natural trails, leading to the top of the mountain. A panoramic section along the ridge will quickly have you forgetting any exhaustion from the climb as you take in the breath-taking views of the Aegean Sea. The tour continues along varied trails in the direction of Kos town, where we will have a lunch break before cycling on through olive groves to the seaside village of Lambi. Here there will be the opportunity to have a well-deserved swimming break on the beautiful sandy beach before returning to Kos Town.

4:30pm – Crossing from Kos and return of rental gear on arrival in Bodrum.
