Day 1: Embarkation at Corfu Island/Marina Gouvia
You will arrive individually at the Corfu airport and make your way to the port where the ship awaits. At 2:00pm you can start checking-in on the Panagiota. The tour begins with dinner on board. You can book, in advance, a transfer from the airport to the ship for an extra fee.
Overnight on Corfu.
Day 2: Corfu Island – Paxos Island
After breakfast, we cast off and cruise to the olive island of Paxos. Paxos is the smallest of the seven Ionian Islands with more olive trees than people – the 32 square-kilometer island is home to over 250,000 olive trees! They cover the island in a wonderful silver-green shimmer. The natural harbor of Gaios is unique and provides a special atmosphere during our stay here. In the afternoon we take a small cycle tour along the coast to Mongonissi bay. The evening can be spent relaxing in a local tavern in Gaios.
Overnight in Gaios.
Day 3: Paxos Island – Lefkas Island
In the morning we cruise to Lefkas Island, Lefkas City, but before arriving we anchor near Antipaxos for a swim stop from the boat. After a long cruise, we reach a narrow channel with an original swing bridge which connects the Greek mainland with the island. From Lefkas City, we start our tour around the lagoon and can enjoy a second swim at the white sand beach, Agios Ioannis. After returning to the boat, we navigate our way to Nidri where we will spend the evening and the night.
Overnight in Nidri.
Day 4: Lefkas Island – Cephalonia Island
In the morning we ride from Nidri through olive groves to a nearby waterfall. If we are lucky, a steady stream of water will enable us to take a refreshing swim. Following the excursion, we make our way to Fiskardo on the island of Cephalonia.
This port, located at the northern tip of the island, delights us with its colorful little houses and many cafes and bars along the picturesque harbor promenade. An evening walk of approximately 30 minutes takes us to a pretty lighthouse.
Overnight in Fiskardo.
Day 5: Cephalonia Island – Meganisi Island (10 miles/15km)
After a short crossing by boat, we reach the harbor of Sami. Today's bike tour starts here and leads us along the coastline to the enchanting Melissani Cave accessible only by rowboat. A visit to a donkey farm, knowledge and fun at the same time for all ages, is next on the agenda before the tour takes us back to the boat. The boat meets us in Sami and takes us for a well-deserved swim break! Our journey then takes us further to Meganisi, a charming island where we spend the night.
Overnight at Meganisi.
Day 6: Meganisi Island – Arillas (6 miles/10km)
After breakfast we have the chance to explore Meganisi on our bike. Afterward, a long crossing will take us to Arillas, an idyllic and peaceful place along the west coast of Greece, close to Perdika on the Greek mainland. A stroll along the sandy beach or a swim around Panagiota (the boat) rounds off the day. We spend the night in Arillas.
Overnigt in Arillas.
Day 7: Arillas – Corfu Island
In the morning our bike tour leads us along remote streets under the shade of old olive trees through a national park and along a little river until we reach the monastery of Agios Athanasios, which we visit. The Panagiota awaits us for our last crossing back to Corfu. Here we can enjoy a celebratory evening meal before reflecting on our wonderful adventures of the week.
Overnight in Corfu.
