The route starts from our base in Laimos and following a mixed route on dirt and asphalt, between small and large Prespa, we will climb towards Psarades. At the highest point of the route, in the protected forest of centuries-old cedars, we take the dirt road, where the panoramic view of the two lakes is breathtaking. Our destination is the top of the hill above the village of Pyli, where we will see the fortifications of the guerrillas, since the civil war era.
From here on we are moving off the road, going down the slope, until we meet a dirt road that will lead us to Pili village. On our way out of the village we will make a stop to visit the cave of the guerrillas’ leader, Zachariadis.
We ascend from asphalt to the village of Vrontero, to enter a dirt road that runs parallel to the banks of the Great Prespa, with a view to Albania, Northern Macedonia and “Triethnes”, the point where, inside the lake, the borders of the 3 states meet. This road will take us to the picturesque lakeside village of Psarades. From there, we will start our return to Laimos, on a paved road.
The route is only for experienced cyclists in good physical condition.
The price of the activity does not include mountain bike rental (you must have your own bicycles). In case you want to rent a bike, let us know.
