Mountain Biking – Great Activity in Nidri – Lefkada
Ride Stats: Distance: 20km / Elevation Gain: 450m / Calorie Burn: 1350
This non-technical intermediate ride takes you south of Nidri through the fishing village of Vlicho. Here you abandon the main road in favour of an off-road track which climbs steadily to the village of Poros. From this track you will see the hamlet of Katohori tucked behind the hillside and stunning views back towards the coast.
As you leave the cypress trees and vegetation behind you will see the first glimpses of the southern part of Lefkas and views of the neighbouring islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia. Next we join the main road for the last few kilometres into Poros village, where we stop for refreshments. We take an off-road track out of the village for one final climb to the tip of the peninsula. The track begins its descent back down the other side of the mountain, overlooking the channel between Lefkas and Meganissi. The views from this peninsula are breathtaking and the descent fast and exhilarating.
Poros Loop is suitable for anyone with a very good fitness level as the riding is about endurance and is not technical. A fantastic activity in Nidri – Lefkas!
