Cycle through Lefkada Town
If you’re an avid cyclist or mountain biker you’ll love exploring this action-packed side of Lefkada. Begin your cycling tour in Lefkada Town itself. Pedestrianized areas and winding alleys offer interesting routes for you to take in a number of sights including the Park of the Poets commemorating the island’s many literary greats, the Castle of St. Maura as well as Gira Lagoon. Many bike-crazy visitors cycle to nearby beaches as well.

Explore Fryni on bike – it’s truly a wonderful way of getting to know this gem of a village.
