LEFKADA - ALL THINGS BIKING -- We wanted to get a few rides in while on Lefkada for a week and Lucy and the two Simon's at Get Active did a great job sorting bikes, guiding, uplifts and local knowledge. Really professional but relaxed as well. A friend an I hired road bikes for a couple of days and did a loop over the top of the island then the reverse. Its 1000m straight up out of Nidri so start early in the summer before it gets too hot - worth the effort; the views from the top are stunning and there's a prime coffee stop in Egklouvi most of the way up. The road bikes were great - a lot better than you'd expect from a rental - we never had a 'wish I had my own bike moment'. Also did the advanced MTB guided ride and an uplift with the kids coming down from the white church right at the top of the island. Great experience - we'll be back. Thanks guys
WONDERFUL MORNING HIKING IN NIDRI -- If you are reasonably fit and enjoy walking then this is a trip you should not miss. Lucy has a fantastic knowledge of the area and this is a real opportunity to leave behind the town and head off into the beautiful countryside. We walked up into the mountain area along quiet trails and enjoyed some spectacular views. A truly memorable morning. Thank you!.
GREAT FUN AND FANTASTIC GUIDES! -- My wife and I were in Lefkas for 2 weeks and wanted to explore more of the natural beauty of the island than just the amazing coastline so we booked two excursions through Get Active. One was a led hike and the other was an intermediate mountain bike ride. Both were fantastic and very enjoyable. The hike took us up into the foothills behind Nydri and was a great way to see some local nature. Simon, our guide, was so nice and really informative about the island, local life and culture. He gave us excellent recommendations for were to eat in some local, less 'touristy' areas up in the hills and we loved all of them. The hike was not too challenging but also wan't just a stroll in the park! A good balance for a holiday excursion unless you are looking for a full days hardcore hiking (although, I'm sure this could be arranged too). The mountain biking was also really good fun. The group on the intermediate ride was of quite a mixed ability the guides quickly evaluated this and split us into two smaller groups - one of slightly more competent mtb'ers and one of slightly less confident riders. They then took us on two different routes that were perfectly suited to our abilities, making sure the ride was enjoyable for all. I can't recommend Get Active enough if you are looking for something different to do on Lefkas. They are all great guides, super friendly and very helpful. They also hire out road bikes and are very helpful with advice about road cycling routes, and they will organise bespoke mtb rides or even training camps if you are looking for something challenging - and the trails on the island are just perfect for some seriously challenging riding - as are the paved roads in the mountains if you are looking to get some training miles in while on holiday.
RENTING A ROAD BIKE -- We have just spend a holliday on lefkas. I have rented a road bike for 10 days with get active biking tours. The communication and service was perfect. I got a lot of explinations. The bike was in perfect condition. And came with a helmet, lock and rapair kit. Next time, I will rent a bike again.
