North Corfu Tour
Discover the Enchanting North Side of Corfu with Our All-Day Mini Bus Tour
Immerse yourself in the beauty of Corfu’s north side with our captivating all-day mini-bus tour. Whether you’re traveling with friends or in a group, our mini-bus will be waiting just a few meters away from your cruise ship at the port’s main entrance.
We begin our journey in the vibrant Ipsos village, renowned for its popularity among English youth. Here, you’ll find a stunning sandy beach stretching along the main road, accompanied by a plethora of nightclubs, bars, restaurants, and shops that cater to visitors day and night, promising unforgettable summer holidays.
As we venture further, you’ll catch sight of the majestic Pantokratoras mountain, towering behind Ipsos village. Next, we’ll make a brief stop at the charming traditional village of Spartilas. Like many other Corfu villages, Spartilas boasts narrow streets lined with houses and five exquisite churches. From Spartilas, you’ll be treated to a unique view of the island and the picturesque Albanian mountains.
Our next destination is the awe-inspiring Pantokratoras Mountain, the highest peak in Corfu. From its summit, situated 917 meters above sea level, visitors can marvel at panoramic views of the Ionian Sea, the Albanian mountains, and the beautiful Corfiot villages. The renowned Monastery of Pantokratoras, perched at the top of the mountain, is a treasure trove of exquisite paintings and silver artifacts. Inside, a resident monk will guide you to the church, offering an enriching experience. Our journey continues to the idyllic village of Strinillas.
Strinillas Village is the perfect spot for a delightful lunch after your visit to Pantokratoras. You’ll be captivated by the breathtaking view of the northwest part of Corfu and the delectable flavors of the local cuisine offered at the village’s charming tavernas. As we make our way through the hillside villages, such as Ag. Martinos, clinging to the edge of the hills, we head towards Acharavi.
Acharavi, nestled in a flat area adorned with pine and olive trees, boasts an expansive sandy beach—one of the largest in Corfu—stretching over 8 km. The shallow, crystal-clear waters are perfect for young children, and the beach is well-equipped with water sports facilities and games. Acharavi is a bustling resort with a vibrant atmosphere, offering numerous shops, tavernas, restaurants, and bars. The surrounding hills provide a starting point for various walking paths leading to Pantokratoras and other nearby mountain villages, forming part of the famous Corfu trail. Here, you can enjoy a leisurely coffee or drink, take a refreshing dip in the inviting sea waters, and bask in the warm embrace of the sun.
Our final stop on the return journey to your cruise ship is the enchanting village of Kassiopi. Once a picturesque fishing village, Kassiopi has transformed into a modern tourist resort while retaining its charm. Explore the ruins of a fortress, renowned as one of the most robust fortresses in the Corfiot countryside. Additionally, discover the significant religious landmark of northern Corfu, the church of Panagia Kassopitras, believed to be constructed upon the foundations of the ancient temple of Zeus of Kassiopi. Destroyed by the Turks and later rebuilt by the Venetians in 1580, the church stands as a testament to history and spirituality.
As you bid farewell to Kassiopi, your mini bus tour concludes, leaving you with indelible memories of the breathtaking sights of Corfu’s north side. We will transport you back to the port, where our journey began, ready to welcome you back on board your cruise ship as you embark on your next adventure.
