The Ionian Islands are among the most favorite of Greece’s 6,000 islands, famed as much for their startling beauty and year-round temperate climate as well as for their rich history. With their rugged shorelines, soaring mountains and deep Mediterranean blue waters, they owe their dramatic landscapes to the seismic activity that tore the islands from the mainland eons ago. Inhabited since the Paleolithic Era, the islands are filled with cultural attractions that let visitors peer into Greece’s historic and mythological past, and with such beautiful scenery, they’re also popular destinations for outdoor activities. Supported by a modern infrastructure, the Ionian Islands are ideal for those simply looking for rest and relaxation too.
IONIAN ISLANDS OF WESTERN GREECE on board to the wonderful MAD MAX 50
Corfù, Lefkas (Preveza), Zakynthos are reacheable by frequent flights from all Europe
Going into more detail of our proposals for Summer in Greece, we would like to give you an idea of the many passage possibilities. The countless islands with all their beauty, make Ionian Greece a destination that can offer exciting places to visit without the fear of getting bored.
Here are few of our favorite itineraries:
1. CORFU TO CORFU
ROUTE A : We sail around Corfu, visiting the stunning coastline of Paleochastrisa, sailing to Paxos and Antipaxos, and then navigate the mainland coast stopping in Parga, Mourtos and other beautiful locations. Returning to Corfu.
ROUTE B : It takes us to the north of Corfu to visit the small but beautiful Diapontinie islands of Othoni, Erikoussa and Mathraki. Afterwards we will sail south to Paxos and Antipaxos and then return to Corfu. (Parga may be included as well, time dependent.)
ROUTE C : More navigation from Corfu to Lefkas. We move to the west of Lefkas and stop in the lively Fiskardo on Cefalonia. Afterwards we head north-east up the Inland Sea touching Meganisi, Skorpios, the east coast of Lefkas, following the channel returning to Corfu via Paxos. (this is the most classic of routes)
2. CORFU TO ZAKYNTHOS (ZANTE)
one way in 1 week (for the round trip allow 2 weeks)
- From Corfu, we sail a coastal route, the channel of Lefkada, then descend and touch Meganisi, Fiscardo, Ithaca, west coast of Zakynthos and finish in the south of the island, in the beautiful bay of Laganas, where the turtles nest on the beaches.
– From Zakynthos to Corfu one way is the same as above but travelling in a south to north direction, always with the possibility of making a return trip in 2 weeks.
3. LEFKADA TO LEFKADA
ROUTE A : We visit the Inland Sea, with the more exclusive islands of Skorpios, Meganisi, Kastos, Kalamos, and moving south we touch Ithaca, Cefalonia and other islets.
ROUTE B : This one takes us down to Zakynthos, to go up again and touch some of the islands mentioned above.
As mentioned previously, the possibilities are endless, with the islands and the coast both offering so much, with the ability to manage our vacation depending on whether we want to sail more or just stop and relax, visit less frequented places or those with an evening life. All the itineraries are flexible.
