ISLAND HOPPING MOUNTAIN BIKING SWIMMING
The ultimate activity escape, enjoy a week of sailing and biking the picturesque Greek Ionian island of Lefkada and her surrounding princess islands. Discover remote trails and beaches aboard your private yacht complete with skipper. Your personal bike guide, Simon, will meet you every morning to take you on a guided mountain bike ride to explore the interior of these lush green islands of the Ionian sea.
The exact biking routes and kilometres that will be taken on this holiday will be dependent on the group’s fitness and ability and will be decided upon booking. This package is suitable for anyone from families to groups of friends, non-bikers are more than welcome on this trip as sailing holidays alone are an amazing experience!
