Greek Ionian Islands Bike & Boat Tour

On the Ionian Islands off the west coast of Greece, Hellas shows her greenest side: Pure nature, the crystal clear blue shimmering Ionian Sea and centuries of Venetian influences dominate the archipelago of the Ionian Islands.

From Corfu, which was the dream island of the unforgettable Austrian empress Sissi, this journey leads us to regions which are not very well known abroad. Discover by bike and boat the famous island of Ithaca which is said to have been the home of Odysseus, the unforgettable green bird sanctuary island of Lefkas, the fantastic mountain world of Cephalonia and the beautiful olive woods of the small island of Paxos. 

Accommodation:     

Enjoy the stay on board the wooden motor yacht and let yourself be pampered by the excellent Greek cuisine and the coziness of the ship! At 23 x 6 m the cruise shp is an affectionately restored wooden motor yacht, which represents the classic boat type of the Kaïkis. With a warm „Welcome on board“, the captain and his crew invite their guests on board. A noble teakwood deck, a comfortably decorated salon surrounded by colourful glass paintings, convenient sitting areas on the entire ship and the cushioned mats on the sundeck facilitate a homely comfort. The 10 guest cabins are stylishly furnished and named after Greek islands; all air conditioned and fitted with shower and WC.

Catering:

The on-board chef is a member of the crew and prepares the breakfast and one or two warm meals a day. The catering starts with the dinner on the arrival day and ends with the breakfast on the departure day.

Internet availability:

The ship does not offer a WiFi connection. If you need to connect to the internet during the tour, we recommend to take your portable electronic device to a cafe or bar somewhere in the harbour. Free WiFi is on offer almost everywhere. If you order something to eat or drink, then you are able to use the WiFi to your hearts content.

Tour character: Level 3

The cycle routes require an advanced level of fitness from the participants. The daily routes have a length of 12 - 31 mi./20 - 50 km. They lead through hilly or mountainous areas and will be completed without any time-constraints. The cycle tours will take us up to 1,000 – 2,300 ft/300 - 700 m of elevation. There are also some extended climbs where walking your bicycle is of course permitted. Most of the roads are asphalted and rarely frequented. Your tour guide informs you each day about the tour details. Helmet use is mandatory on all cycle tours. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own (well-fitted) helmet. Cycle helmets are available on board in limited number (on request). You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle tour.

Children: We believe that only children in a good physical condition and with a minimum age of 10 and previous bicycle tour experience are able to master the cycle tours on their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1.30 m (4”3’)
