Mountainbiking is one of the most practical ways to discover the real Corfu. The island’s good minor road system and the central location of THE CORFU MOUNTAINBIKE SHOP in Dassia, means that almost all beautiful parts are easy to reach during a single day’s cycling trip, so that each day’s cycling can be a new experience. The forest tracks of the Pantokrator mountain range provide very challenging routes for expert cyclists, while for less strenuous and sirene trips the lowland areas of Ropa Valley and central Corfu are full of opportunities and interesting themes:
The tours cover all the island and will introduce to you the traditional villages, hidden in the green hinterland covered with century old olive groves, by using a network of country roads, paths and tracks. According to many, a holiday in Greece is not complete without a marvellous cruise, so sometimes we include a boat transfer at the beginning or the end of the cycling tour!
You will meet local people and experience “the Greek way of life”, and to satisfy your curiosity you will see unexpected sites and landscapes deserving to be immortalized in an unique photograph… During the tours you will be together with like-minded sportive friends, enjoy a refreshment in a local kafeneion, and have lunch in a typical Corfiot waterfront taverna, followed by a swim in the crystal clear sea.
This is the ideal cycling holiday if you want to explore Corfu with a group of fellow bikers. You can support each other during the ride and discuss the marvels you discovered over lunch or dinner.
On the Tracks of Odysseus is a one or two weeks individual cycle program, leading the cyclists on an easy way and at their own pace along hill-sides and beautiful coastlines, through medieval picturesque villages, where time stands still and to Corfu’s most pristine beaches, using mainly quiet and minor roads through vine yards and century old olive groves. The step-by-step detailed route descriptions cover an amazing variety of scenery and feature the most beautiful parts of Corfu Island, and together with culinary and other useful tips, do indicate which sites are interesting to visit on your way.
Overnight accommodation on the way has been arranged for you on a most comfortable way staying in small authentic Greek family run 3*hotels and tavernas, all with direct beach side location and often with pool. In each hotel/taverna you will stay on BB or HB basis, mostly two consecutives nights (except the last night), whereby you can explore the area according the route-descriptions. You can also choose for an extra day of relaxation as in each hotel/taverna you can pre-book extra nights!
