Biking in the Maltese islands is becoming a popular activity with locals and visitors alike. The islands have a great deal to offer a cyclist, with long country roads, narrow walled streets with rough surfaces and smooth long stretches that allow you to get into a good rhythm.
Gozo’s national symbol is the three hills and even though the highest point of the island is no greater than 450 meters above sea level there are a great number of cycling routes that offer a wide range of challenges.
The routes we follow take you through the countryside, along picturesque roads and valleys with stunning views, past temples, places of interest and rough tracks, which guaranties enjoyable and challenging cycling.
The best months for mountain biking in Gozo are the mild winter months from October to May. The island is a lush green and carpets of wild flowers and herbs cover the hills and valleys. If you don’t mind the heat in the summer, the tracks and roads are no busier than in the winter months and you are welcome to tackle the hills of this beautiful island and stop for a refreshing swim in the crystal clear sea.
Please note, that full day trips require a minimum of two guests, while half-day trips require a minimum of three guests.
