See and discover Old Corfu by 4x4 vehicle. Experience the fun and adventure of the island's beauty as you drive yourself through olive groves and over beautiful green hills while catching glimpses of the sparkling Ionian Sea.
Your 4x4 vehicle will be waiting for you on the pier. Get behind the wheel (two guests per vehicle; at least one must drive) and head along the main coastal road leading to Dassia, in the northeastern part of the Island. Once in Dassia you take a small village road passing by the villages of Kato Korakiana and Ano Korakiana -- the most beautiful of the old, traditional villages on Corfu.
Leaving the villages behind, you'll negotiate a series of hairpin bends up the winding Pantokrator Mountain Road to the picturesque village of Sokraki. Stop here to admire one of the island's most fantastic panoramic views -- a photographer's paradise.
Continue on and, after some 20 minutes of driving, you will arrive at Troumbetta and Kratsalo -- the highest point on the island. In the village of Makrades, you'll stop for a chance to purchase local products such as olives, olive oil, honey and herbs.
A few miles down, you will arrive at Lakones. Refreshments will be served here in a café that offers panoramic views of Paleokastritsa's multiple bays.
Take the main Corfu road southbound and return to the pier.
