Head to the west of Greece for a leisurely, bike and boat cycling holiday around the Ionian Islands, from Corfu down through the Ionian Sea to Kefalonia and back. Along the way moor in picture-perfect ports, enjoy wonderful cycle trips along quiet lanes to charming villages and stunning beaches. Discover delightful, hidden corners of old Greece on the islands of Lefkas, Kefalonia, Ithaca and Paxos.
Your home for your Greek odyssey is the charming two-masted Panagiota, with her sun deck, shaded rear deck, spacious saloon and en suite, air conditioned cabins. Her friendly crew include cycle guides and a cook who’ll create tasty Greek specialities for you to enjoy on board after a day in the saddle.
Panagiota - your home for the week
Each day tends to consist of either a cruise, followed by a guided cycle ride or the other way round. The highlights of this wonderful adventure are many and varied but stand-outs include the challenging but scenic ride from Nidri to Vasiliki followed by a refreshing swim from the boat at the secluded beach of Porto Katsiki, spending the night moored in the charming, colourful little port of Fiskardo on Kefalonia, cycling through mythical and unspoilt Ithaca and al-freso dining on board the Panagiota with a cold glass of something nice, watching the sun sink slowly into the Ionian.
You’ll cycle a total of 125-odd miles during the trip over varied terrain. Each island is different, but they all include some hills so a fair level of fitness is required to enjoy this holiday. As well as regular bikes, e-bikes are also available and will take the sting out of the climbs but numbers are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
