Boat bike tours Greece — island hopping cycle cruises
Our boat bike tours in Greece require very little explanation; guests board the wooden motor yacht Panagiota and set sail for eight days of relaxed cycle and cruise exploration in the stunning Ionian Islands. This region of spectacular scenery off the west coast of Greece is not only famous for the crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea, idyllic beaches and lush vegetation — the names of its famous islands like Ithaca, Paxos & Lefkas are also imbued with tales of Greek gods and goddesses, Homer’s Odyssey and inexhaustible history.
Cycle the Ionian Islands and sleep on the Ionian Sea
Your trip through the splendor of this Greek archipelago begins in Corfu, where you’ll board the wonderfully-restored two-masted motor yacht Panagiota, which is equipped with a spacious sun deck, a comfortable saloon and even a swim ladder for easy sea access. Enjoy your first taste of delicious Greek cuisine from our talented chef, and have a sound sleep before your boat bike tour Greece departs for the Ionian Archipelago.
The cycle touring on this fully-guided trip touches on the Greek mainland for the grand Venetian Fortress of Parga; the charming villages, bays, birdlife and cliffs of Lefkas Island (also known as Lefkada), Cephalonia (Kefalonia) Island’s lively promenades and mountain roads; the beautiful hilly landscapes of Ithaca, homeland of the mythical king Odysseus; and even more heritage, swimming spots and panoramas on the islands of Meganisi and Paxos.
Boat bike tours through Greece’s islands, to & from Corfu
At the start and end of your unforgettable cycle cruise through the Ionian Sea and the waters of the Mediterranean, you’ll have free time on the popular Greek island of Corfu — and we recommend planning in a few extra days here outside of your tour. Why? For a start, the Corfu Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with British, French and Venetian influence — its jewels include the Old Fortress, Royal Palace and Liston Square — and the white marble Achillion Palace of the famous Austrian Empress Sisi is close by.Nature lovers will also find plenty to enjoy on Corfu Island and, of course, you can also visit a site from the original Greek boat epic — Pondikonissi Island, the final destination of Odyssey’s journey. Plenty of reasons to dream about boat bike tours in Greece!
