Durrells Cycling Tour

Central Corfu

The section of Corfu island we are visiting is almost desolated. Little traffic, imposing landscapes, protected nature areas. This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate.

This a classic sportive MTB tour with a combination of off road tracks. It can be started both from Corfu Town or “Gouvia” area and gets into the green area of “Poulades”. Olive trees, low bushes, tarmac, gravel and countryside narrow roads, climbing and descending, birds and hawks, are some of the characteristic labels of this route. The target destination is the “Crab Lake”, a small lake situated in the middle of a green “nowhere”. What follows next is one of the off-road tracks that
lead towards one of the “Durrell’s” houses and particularly their farm, close to another one of nature’s “middle of nowhere” land, the so-called “Gaidarana Lake”. “Gaidarana Lake” is a big protected nature area, an old system of many small lakes that were almost esicated in the middle of 1800’s by the Venetian authorities. The “Gaidarana” area is used for horse farming these days and we are going to cross it all along on mountain bikes. The nature of the area is green and dense and we will sure find time for a small snack and drink break spot during our ride.
