Join us on a fascinating journey! On this Bike & Boat tour we explore both the Greek mainland as well as the impressive Ionian Islands. Along the way we get a first-hand experience of the scenic and cultural diversity in Greece as we travel by bike and on board the two-masted motor sailer, the Panagiota. The Ionian Islands show Greek at its greenest, unspoiled scenery and centuries of Venetian influence characterize this yet little-known archipelago. The glistening blue waters of the Ionian Sea, the mountainous landscape of Cephalonia, the bird-sanctuary island, Lefkas, and the small island of Paxos covered in olive groves all play part in a wonderfully relaxing vacation. Famous sites such as Delphi and Aegina are just some of the highlights of the tour. The passage through the Corinth Canal is sure to become an unforgettable memory.
The M/S Panagiota is a lovingly restored motor sailor and was originally built in the shape of a traditional Greek caique. With a warm, ‘Welcome on Board’, the crew greet the arriving guests.
A splendid teak wood deck, a cozy saloon with stained glass windows, comfortable seating areas throughout the ship and sunning mats on both of the sun decks provide a true sense of familiarity and home.
Six of the charming cabins are located below deck and four above deck. They are named after popular Greek islands and are furnished functionally and are incredibly comfortable. The sea can be accessed via…

We are happy to arrange additional nights with breakfast in Athens. The 2004 Olympic Games held in the Greek capital had an incredibly positive effect on the lively 5-million-strong metropolis. Large areas of the city centre were converted into pedestrian zones and a vast archaeological park was created around the Acropolis. A stroll through the many winding alleys of the Plaka, the charming old town quarter, is a wonderful way to spend a warm summer evening.
We would be happy to arrange additional nights with breakfast at a hotel in the UNESCO World Heritage old town of Corfu. Corfu Island’s capital of the same name is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece. Strolling through the alleys of the lively, Venetian style old town of Corfu is a true holiday experience with its countless small shops, cultural highlights, and its many delightful cafés.
Would you like to stay longer on Corfu? Are you looking for a program that offers you both pre-organised activities and enough free time to experience this renowned island on your own? Then we recommend our three-day extension program, which can be booked either before or after your Islandhopping tour. This includes transfers and two nights’ accommodation with breakfast. You can also choose from one of three guided activities.
Have you long dreamed of visiting the Greek island of Mykonos? Would you like to discover this paradise with a program that offers both pre-organised activities as well as enough free time to explore the beautiful island by yourself? Then our four-day extension program in Mykonos is the perfect choice for you!
All Islandhopping tours starting and ending in Athens can also be combined with our 4-day additional program on Santorini. The queen of the Aegean enchants with its breathtaking caldera and colorful cliffs. Included in the program are transfers, three overnight stays in a boutique hotel with breakfast and the choice between a sea kayak tour or a sunset wine tour.
Due to our international audience all Islandhopping tours are conducted bilingually, in English and German.
We reserve the right to make changes to the route in the case of changing wind and weather conditions as well as for reasons of organizational necessity.
Participants require a high level of fitness for this tour. The daily routes vary in length 12 - 31 mi./20 - 50 km and lead through hilly to mountainous terrain. The tours can, however, be completed without any time constraints. Participants will also need to master long and steep climbs, during which it is of course bikes can be pushed. Most of the roads we cycle along are asphalted and with low traffic. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle-tour.
On our regular cycling tours the riding pace is determined by the cyclists on regular bicycles. We ask guests who have reserved an e-bike to be mindful of this and to acknowledge that also the regular cyclists need time to rest and longer to climb the hills. Thank you for your understanding.
Helmets are mandatory on our bike tours. It is advised to bring your own, well fitted, helmet with you as our rental helmet numbers are limited (reservation required).
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 with their own strength. Please note that the minimum height for a rental bike is 1.50 m (5 ft.) for hybrid bikes.
For the best tour experience with children, we recommend our Multi-Adventure Cruises in Croatia or Greece. We are convinced that these itineraries provide the best all-round experience for each individual family member.
The tour which you have booked requires a bike with a fully functional set of gears. Islandhopping can offer you high quality, fully serviced rental bikes perfect for the terrain of this tour.
Should you however wish to bring your own hybrid bicycle with you, please make sure to check the condition of your breaks, gears, and tires and don’t forget to bring along a puncture repair kit and the essential spare parts for your bike (e.g. brake pads and spare tubes). Your bike should be in prefect mechanical working order.
We do not allow private e-bikes on board of our boats. This decision has been made due to health and safety regulations. If you wish to ride an e-bike for the duration of your tour, please get in touch with us about the rental options.
