Biking

Take off on your own voyage of discovery or enjoy the two routes carefully planned by our experts to make your ride a real pleasure from start to finish.

Head inland to the stunning mountains and forests of the Zagori region or explore the dramatic coastline. Explore this magical scenery, refreshing and recharging in charming tavernas and picturesque villages along the way.

Mountain Explorer

Ride through the spine of mainland Greece on ancient merchant routes through the dramatic Epirus mountains and spectacular Zagorochoria National Park.

We’ll get you started by transferring you and your bike to the outskirts of Ioannina city. Then its up to the mountains with a midday rest at Papigo before heading on to Kipoi for lunch at a local restaurant. The estimated time for this trip is 8 or 9 hours.

Coastal Explorer

Run down the coastline to the mountains and back to unwind through remote villages, spectacular scenery and stunning beaches. A challenging route but worth if you wish to conquer the climbs. And of course, you can stop on route to cool down in the beautifully refreshing ocean.

You’ll find everything you need for the perfect cycling adventure.

A heavenly ocean-side retreat, with possibly the most beautiful views in Greece: If you possibly can, fly into Corfu, then take the hotel’s boat across the ocean to your final stop. You’ll feel entirely reset and ready to holiday by the time you arrive, having passed countless secret sandy shores, caves and inlets on your way, sea salt amassing to shimmer in your hair. Elix’s reception is then like a sort of celestial spa, with barn-high ceilings and windows that frame the infinity view, and even a soothing spa-like scent to cascade over your senses.

Conde Nast Traveller on Elix

A five star Ionian hideaway with A list appeal: Elix is a five-star hideaway in a six-star location. Blended unobtrusively into the densely wooded slopes above the brochure-worthy Karavostasi beach, this eco-conscious hive of pools, stone, wood and olive-tinted concrete offers low-key luxury amid sage-scented gardens and nature’s wild splendour.
