Our group will leave with 4×4 jeeps in convoy formation from our meeting point in Alepou, Corfu Town. Driving by yourself is the best way to experience the adventure – but, if you don’t feel like, just take a seat in another jeep and enjoy the safari as a passenger.
We will drive in west northern direction and stop for a coffee break at Sokraki, a beautiful traditional village up the most amazing bendy road, high above Ano Korakiana. The road goes through some of the most tranquil beautiful old fields, with breathtaking 360 degree views of the island, which you will surely enjoy.
Zigos, Omali and Stirnilas
Continuing on our tour, we will pass the small villages of Zigos, Omali and Strinilas. Those old Corfiot villages – as many others, will give you the feeling that time has stood still during the past 100 years. See the unique architectural style of the houses, whose visible age gives them their charm, with spilling flowers from balconies and pots. We will pass small village squares with its Kafeneons, where always village people meet and chat. Even in the tiniest village there is a small church, whose unique architecture was visibly influenced by Italian churches of the 16th century.
On serpentine roads, which are very typical for this area, we will drive to the highest point of the island, Mount Pantocrator. The Pantocrator is with 906m the highest mountain on the island and from here the whole island of Corfu and Albania can be seen. On clear days you can see even Italy, which is about 130 km away. Pantocrator is a small paradise mount, which will enthuse nature lovers with its splendid panoramic view.
Monastery of Christ Pantocrator
We will not miss to visit the famous Monastery of Christ Pantocrator with its beautiful Byzantine architecture, which was constructed in the XI century on the ruins of a monastery. From here we will return along Corfu’s scenic shore to Kalamaki, which has one of the nicest golden sandy beaches in northern Corfu. We have 1,5 hours time here, either for swimming or for lunch and relaxation.
Our way back to Corfu Town goes trough the highest village on the island – Spartillas. Surely you will be fascinated by this large ancient village, which is nestled under the peak of Mount Pantocrator and because of its view known as “The window of Corfu”.
Let us show you Corfu’s pristine nature, traditional villages and stunning views on this guided tour on picturesque roads.
