What you'll do

This is an exploring adventure like no other! You will discover a new world of nature, history and mythical heroes. In our case, you are not a passenger, you are a railway rider. We will give you the opportunity to enjoy the landscape from a completely different perspective. Let’s go for railbiking at Kakia Skala! Learn about industrial heritage. The railroad that you are going to ride on was founded in 1882 and when completed it had connected Piraeus and Athens with Peloponnese. In the middle of the route, you will have the opportunity to visit an old limestone kiln. The ruins of the industrial revolution in combination with the forgotten railway capture an amazing composition for unique photos. Visit WW2 bunkers which are accessible only by our railbikes. Abandoned and built during the German occupation in the 40s, the bunkers are near to coves with steep shores on which they are conjugated. Discover unique flora. There are about 576 listed plant species in Megara, 47 of which are rare. Follow the path of Theseus! In the area, according to ancient Greek mythology, lived the giant Skyron. He was known as a notorious Corinthian robber. The Athenian hero Theseus killed Skyron on his first journey from Troezen to Athens. Railbiking in Greece is an unforgettable unique adventure that is indeed worth to try!

Artemis

Hi, my name is Art and people know me as a railway enthusiast and as the first railbiker in Greece. In 2005 I started with an idea of inventing a specially designed bicycle that goes on disused railways. My vision was to give an alternative opportunity to the railway's heritage and to preserve it for further generations. After many years of experimentation and testing, I build an awarded prototype which is safe, effective, stylish and super-fun on any disused railways. What is more, in 2019, after hard negotiations with the authorities, my team manage to get a license to run railbike tours in Megara-Kakia Skala route. That route my friends has been considered as the best place in the world for railbiking. Are you ready for it?
