"Tracks of Odyssey" – Discovery Corfu self-guided cycling week for individuals

 

On the Tracks of Odysseus is a one week (8 to 13 days) individual cycling programme, 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 basis (North) and with some dinners included in family tavernas (South), mostly two consecutives nights, whereby you can explore the area according the route-descriptions.

As SLOW TRAVEL applies you can choose for an extra day of relaxation or a challenging ride through the mountains, as in each hotel/taverna you can pre-book extra nights according to your preference!

The daily itineraries cover average 40-45Km distance enabling you to enjoy the sites around you, to meet and make friends with local people, to never be in a hurry and to have ample time for your lunch at a waterfront-taverna followed by a refreshing dip in the crystal clear blue waters of the Ionian Sea.

We invite you to experience the very best of Corfu Island, a true cycle/MTB paradise for both recreation as sport, as you may challenge Mount Pantokrator!
