AN ALL-DAY CHALLENGE FOR ADVANCED RIDERS
The all-day challenge leads to the semi-deserted Byzantine of Old Perithia on the mountain range of Mount Pantokrator.
Riding through fantastic scenery up to the mountain starts with selecting traditional villages, followed by paths through ancient olive groves. We continue on a track along a gulley bordered by Oak Forest. After hours in nature, only maybe meeting an occasional hiker or shepherd, we reach Old Perithia for a fantastic lunch in the oldest taverna of the village, O'Foros.
After lunch, we discover this old village of Corfu, located a few hundred meters under the summit of Mount Pantokrator, Corfu's highest mountain (907m).
On the way back, there is another break to see the enormous cave Grava which has a lake in it. All the time, you can enjoy the incredible views of the coastline and in the distance the Greek mainland and Albania.
