Multi-Adventure Cruise Ionian Islands

Multi-Adventure Cruise Ionian Islands

(8 Days/7 Nights, approx. 70 km )

On board of the Panagiota, a two-masted wooden motor sailer, this multi-adventure cruise takes us to the Ionian Islands spread out along the west coast of Greece. Here we see Hellas at its greenest.

This tour takes us from Corfu to the Island of Lefkas, with its white chalk cliffs and picture perfect beaches as well as to the Island of Cephalonia with its picture perfect village of Fiskardo and the enchanting Melissani Cave. On Meganisi and Paxos – an island all covered in olive trees – where time seems to have stood still, we may have unforgettable insights into traditional Greek island life.

For seven days we explore the unique island and coastal world by boat & bike, canoe, and on foot. This family-friendly cruise leaves a lot of room for fun, games and spontaneity. Biking, hiking, canoeing, swimming or relaxing on board: You decide each day what you feel like doing. Our tour guide is familiar with the country and gladly gives advises and makes suggestions, accompanies us at the various activities and can tell us a lot about the lively history of Greece.

Extended stay

Extend your stay on Corfu!

Would you like to be in the vicinity before your biking and cruising tour in the Ionian Islands begins or to spend a few more relaxed days afterwards on the island of Corfu?

Corfu is the largest island in the Ionian archipel and its diverse landscape, countless beaches, turquiose-coloured sea and many sightseeing attractions are impressive. The beautiful landscape in the north of the island, with its coast of sandstone cliffs at Sidari, attracts tourists like a magnet.

Corfu’s capital – also named Corfu – is considered one of the most beautiful towns in all of Greece. To stroll through the lively lanes of the historical centre with its Venetian flair, where countless small shops offer a colourful profusion of wares, is a true holiday highpoint. Also impressive are the New and Old Fortress, just as photogenic as the monastery island of Vlacherna- connected by a dam to the main island – and nearby Mouse Island (Pontikonissi).

Austria’s great empress Sissi already described Corfu as the island of her dreams when she came there to improve her delicate health. In 1890 – 1892, she had an extraordinary palace built 7 km south of Corfu Town, calling it Achilleion, after Achilles, the legendary Homeric hero. It is today one of the main tourist attractions.

So it is certainly always worthwhile to extend your holiday on Corfu: No matter whether you are interested in culture, love hiking or exploring the island by car, or simply want to relax on the beach – Corfu has something for everybody.
