Description

Day 1: Corfu/Corfu Island
Individual arrival at Corfu Airport and private transfer to the boat. Check-in available from 2.00 pm. Dinner and overnight stay on board at Corfu.

Day 2: Corfu Island – Sivota – Parga – Lefkada Island (28 km)
We embark! In the morning we'll sail towards Sivota, on mainland Greece, from where we will start our first bike tour. We'll head towards Parga, beautiful coastal town that stands at the foot of a Venetian fortress overlooking the old city. Here, we'll find the boat waiting for us for a longer stint of navigation all the way to Nidri, on Lefkada Island. On our route, we'll also cross the floating bridge connecting Lefkada to the mainland. We'll spend the night in the lively harbor of Nidri.

Day 3: Lefkada Island – Cephalonia Island (35 km)
After breakfast, we'll depart for a short bike tour to the beautiful Dimosari Waterfalls. With some luck, there will be enough water for a refreshing dip. Our route will then continue on quiet roads through the hills to the picturesque port of Sivota town. Here we'll board the boat to sail to Fiskardo, on the northernmost point of Cephalonia Island. Let yourselves be captivated by the colorful houses and numerous cafes and bars that overlook the bustling waterfront.

Day 4: Cephalonia Island – Ithaca (39 km)
We jump in the saddle and prepare to leave Fiskardo by traveling a wonderful mountain road along the western coast of the island. Along the way, we'll be greatly rewarded with magnificent views of the Assos Peninsula and Myrtos beach. After the climb, we'll head inwards and cross the island. At the end of the bike tour, we'll hop on a rowboat to visit the astonishing Melissani cave, where we'll be captivated by the deep blue tones created by the sun's reflection in the water. We'll meet the boat again at Sami and depart for Vathy, on Ithaca Island.

Day 5: Ithaca Island (20 or 28 km)
In the morning, we'll set off for a bike tour on Ithaca Island, where time seems to have stood still. This hilly island, with its extraordinary landscapes, is famous for being Ulysses' homeland. Our route starts at Vathy and while pedaling, we'll get to experience the special charm of less touristy spots in the Ionian Islands: gnarly olive trees, crystal clear waters, and locals ready to welcome anyone who decides to visit their land. You'll then have the chance to choose whether to accept the challenge of a real climb, or opt for a pleasant alternative of a halfway-uphill panoramic ride. We'll meet the boat again at Frikes, and from here we'll set sail to Meganisi Island.

Day 6: Meganisi Island – Paxos (20 km)
In the morning we'll explore the small island of Meganisi by bike. Our route will take us on deserted roads through the three inland villages, which will provide us with glimpses of typical Greek island life. Once we reach Spartochori beach, we'll have time to enjoy a coffee and a swim in the sea. In the afternoon, we'll leave by boat for the island of Paxos, whose only natural harbor at Gaios offers a special atmosphere. We'll spend the evening in the cozy taverns on the port.

Day 7: Paxos Island – Corfu Island (23 km)
Paxos, the smallest of the 7 Ionian Islands, is covered by so many olive trees that it seems to sparkle with a wonderful silvery green. On our bikes, we'll tour around the island and we'll have plenty of time to enjoy a swim in the sea and some relaxation on one of the many beaches. In the afternoon, we'll sail back to Corfu. A final dinner is planned on board for the last evening, in the company of the crew, our travel companions, and the guides.

Day 8: Corfu
After breakfast, check-out and end of services.
