Ride Stats

Distance: 20km / Elevation Gain: 450m / Calories Burnt: 1352

This ride takes you south of Nidri through the fishing village of Vlicho before abandoning 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 coastal villages and ‘tranquil bay’. We will make a stop at the 16th century chapel of Analipseos whose white washed structure has visible earthquake damage and inside house some faded original frescoes. Leaving 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. Rejoining the main road for the last few kilometres into Poros village, where we will stop at a local café for refreshments. We take an off-road track out of the village for one final climb to the tip of the peninsula where 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!
