Come and explore the beautiful and peaceful island of Kefalonia in the Ionian Sea by bicycle. Cycle along quiet country lanes to glorious beaches and quaint villages whilst enjoying amazing sea views. On this tour you will stay at three different locations during your 7 night holiday – in a remote and tranquil area, on the coast and in the bustling capital.
Depending on your accommodation preference, the first three nights of your holiday will be spent in either Moussata (comfort category) or the seaside hamlet of Avithos Beach (superior category).
Over the following two days you’ll enjoy scenic rides to Argostoli, the island’s capital where, with a bit of luck, you should see the resident loggerhead turtles. You’ll also visit he tiny fishing village of Katelios on the south coast, and Skala with its impressive Roman Villa.
On day four you’ll cycle across the island to the gorgeous little fishing village of Agia Efemia, which will be your home for the next 3 nights. On the way there you can stop and enjoy the view of the exquisite Myrtos Beach far below – do you descend or not, we’ll leave that decision to you!
Daily rides from Agia Efimia reveal some mysterious caves as well as the idyllic Antisamos bay which you may recognise from the movie, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin as some scenes were shot here. You’ll also visit Fiskardo, without doubt the island’s most beautiful village, colourful houses clustered around a tiny harbour contained in an amphitheater of Cypress trees.
Your final night is spent in Argostoli, the island’s bustling capital – the perfect place to celebrate your achievement in one of the many inviting tavernas.
You’ll need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy this cycling holiday as you’ll encounter some climbs on each of the daily rides.
