Interactive e-bike guided tours
by Aurelia e-assist Bikes™

We tend to see our e-bikes as time machines that remind us our childhood memories while using a technology from the future.
Since Naxos was the center of the archaic Cycladic civilization and in the present is striving to compete modern international tourist destinations, we can only consider our guided tours as a kind of time travel as well.
Interact with the island’s diverse landscape and become part of it, in a journey through time!

INLAND METHEXIS

Methexis is an ancient Greek word with an abstract sense. It implies the communication between the perceptual world and the world of ideas. It involves mental uplift, inner contact and outer communication.

This tour will let you contact with your inner self and your co-riders, while in a natural scenery full of scents and myths.

One of the most atmospheric villages of Naxos, Halki, considered as the “capital” of Northern Naxos, will be your first main stop. But before that, Agios Mamas’ – the protector of shepherds –  Byzantine chapel will catch your attention with its architectonic and the surroundings area.

“Back To The Roots” farm, located in Halki is next. It will let you communicate with a Greek countryside child’s memories. Feeding the donkeys, sheep, geese and watering them from the well in complete tranquility, will bring the child out of you. Why not some amateur archery as well?

Last stop the Saint Anna Winery in Potamia village. Local wine, produced and bottled in Naxos, paired with Naxian olive oil, cheese, tomatoes and olives. A small yet “great” vineyard with a chapel, a threshing floor and most of all,  a great atmosphere.

AEGEAN LUSH

What has the Aegean sea got to do with lush lowlands?  They blend perfectly in this tour.

Plains of olive tress, canes and citrus fruits next to the Aegean sea constitute the natural scenery of this tour. Several stops, information flood of archaeological and agricultural interest and then.. the infinite blue! 

The beauty of  Melanes valley will get you in the right mood before getting to know the two wonders of ancient sculpture lying imposingly  – the  famous Kouros statues.

Eggares citrus valley is next, about which the nine times for Nobel prize nominated, great Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis, wrote : “If paradise was on earth, it would be here”.

The hospitality of Eggares Olive Press museum was more likely the kind of hospitality that hugged him, to speak these words. Let the curators of the museum treat you the same way, in a full tour.

Our friend Giannis will accommodate you next, in his farm with his own produced cheese, vegies, wine and/or raki. His eyes and smile speak English, although his mouth doesn’t.

Do not eat or drink too much as Ammitis beach is waiting, after a 10 minutes ride. Hammocks, lunch and infinite blue lie ahead.

A relaxing ride throughout the citrus plain of Eggares and Galini villages and besides the ocean afterwards, will be your last taste of the tour.

SHORT.. IS THE NEW BLACK!

So many things to see while on the island! Can you squeeze two activities in one day?

The answer is YES! “S I T N B” e-bike tour has the perfect route to get a taste of the West and most popular coastline of the island in a 3 hours time.

 It can be executed in a morning session with an optional swim break or during the amazing west coast sunset.

A pretty easy route in which you and your choices will determine the outcome.

A not so busy road behind the airport will take you to Plaka beach through the potato fields and cow stables of Agios Arsenios village. A smelly, yet satisfying route in which – if lucky enough – can observe the seagulls standing on straw balls. 

A dip in the sandy Plaka beach or coastal riding in the sunset follows. With or without a cocktail.. Our guide will (pretend to) talk on the phone while you enjoy the romantic atmosphere.

Agios Nikolas chapel is next, after a 2’ hike in a secluded seaside hill with an extra super view of the sunset. The sharκ shaped rock and your guide will have a small chit chat while you enjoy the view.

Choose your route back either from Agia Anna & Agios Prokopis coastal road or from the route that the shark shaped rock suggested to your guide.

Either way the sunset colors will be visible along the way. The same with your relaxed mood as well, when we welcome you back in Aurelia HQ.
