THURSDAY

The Emerald Cruise:  per motorship we cruise to Parga -one of the most picturesque villages of the Greek mainland - for sightseeing and leisure.  We continue to beautiful Sivota where we have arranged a traditional lunch, on the tunes of a local orchestra, at the waterfront.
In the meantime the sportsmanlike group have been mountainbiking (we take our Giant bikes with us on the boat) from Parga through the beautiful mountains to Sivota (25 KM), where they will join us for lunch.

In the afternoon we sail back to Corfu, enjoying the fresh breeze and a Greek Sirtaki music on board!

FRIDAY



No organized cycling planned, opportunity to participate in local excursion, or to learn all about the Giant bikes during one of the workshops, expertly led by Giant management.

SATERDAY

“Talking to the land of the Gods”, a sportsmanlike tour and THE Highlight of the GIANT Meeting…

We climb and downhill Mount Pantokrator: from sea level at Dassia along traditional mountain villages, a 23KM long traject, and all the way up to the 14th century monastery at the very top (907M), offering very rewarding and amazing helicopter views all over the island, the opposite Greek mainland and mysterious Albania.

We enjoy the site and our refreshment and continue downhill (off road path) to our lunch address offered in a “ghost” village, dating from Byzantine times…

Friends and family can follow and support the tour with 4X4jeeps, and after the lunch, together with the Giant cyclists,  they will continue with their jeep safari with much more off-road, while the cyclists can choose one of the various off-road tracks or tarmac coastal road back to Dassia.

SUNDAY

A day at leisure or an optional excursion, and in the evening “farewell” dinner, followed by a “Giant good bye” drink…



We wish you all a GIANT week on Corfu !!!
