In this Mountain Bike tour we will explore the paths at the area around Analipsis village. This area is characterized by a dense system of narrow tarmac & gravel roads that intersect themselves in some cases.
We will be mainly moving on country side roads rather than main roads. Actually main roads won't be more than a couple of Kilometers in the whole route that we need to face.

"Governor & Paleo Cave MTB Tour"

Moderate 100%

This is one of the the most amazing bike tours of Corfu Island.  The adventure begins some Km away from “Agios Mathaios” village, with sections onto the main road but also onto narrow countryside roads of south Corfu.
Our stops will sure include the 20.000 years old Paleolithic cave known by the name of “Grava Gardikiou”, which is situated on a hill’s roots just 200m away from the main road. This cave is the oldest of the more than 200 caves on Corfu Island.
The name of this cave derives by the close presence of a Byzantine / Eastern Roman Empire castle, named “Gardiki”, which is considered build in the 13th century. This castle was protecting the far west borders of the Konstantinopoli against Pirates and Italian small states incursions.
In the past, close to “Gardiki” castle, the village “Zygonos” was found but the well known Pirate “Hayreddin Barbarossa Pasha” (1478- 1546 a.D.), that was offering naval services to the Ottoman Empire the whole 16th century, destroyed it. All the sourounding land and its products were destroyed too, while some 20.000 Corfiot citizens were sold as slaves in the far East and North African markets.
More close to the modern era and in the same south area of Corfu, we will have the opportunity to visit the WWI’s military Serbian camp’s spring of 1916 and what’s leftover of the WWII‘s German AA emplacements in the region. We will also have the opportunity to proceed close to the West coast line and through the dense olive tree countryside.
One of our stops, close to “Agios Matheos” village, involves the visit to the 1 out of the best 10 oil of olive production establishment’s in the whole world.  It’s oil is world wide known by the name of “The Governor”.

"Mount Pantokrator Downhill Gravel"

Moderate 35%

Easy 65%

Gravel (3,13 Miles - 5Km)
This is probably one of the best MTB tour on Corfu Island. It involves gravel, tarmac and the most spectacular panoramic of the Island.
Firstly we have to get on the top of the tallest mountain of Corfu Island. This is Mount “Pantokrator” (Mount Almighty) which is 910m (2950ft) tall. This mountain overlooks the whole island from North to South. It is not strange that monks have used its top for building their monastery.
Our car will transfer us up there along with our bikes. From that mountain we will perform a really long descent all the way down to the east coast of the island reaching sea level.
Initially we will start at around 900m above sea level and slowly descent to around 700m. Lots of turns & stone road will challenge our skills.
This initial view of Greece / Albania / North Epirus sea straights  will be breath taking. The tall hills surrounding our tour will teleport us back in antiquity time, where men use to live almost away from any kind of sea civilization by the fears of Pirate nations.
First 5 kilometers of the descent are on gravel, while the rest 10km will be on tarmac.  By saying this we need to clear out that part of the tour will be a bit slow and part a bit speedy. But  anyways one think is for sure.... we are going to love this remarkable activity!
 
Tarmac (6,63Miles – 10,7Km)
We will proceed with the descent from 700m to almost 50m above sea level while being only on tarmac. We will enjoy full down hill through unique green areas, trees, bushes, narrow roads & a couple of villages.
