Jeep Safari – South

Jeep Safari – South

Wander around traditional villages!

Jeep safari tour is far from the ordinary, traditional excursion where the ultimate goal is to give prominence to the hidden beauty of Corfu Island, the preservation of natural landscapes and the designation of our cultural inheritance.

The route features as a starting point the summer resort of Moraitika. Right at the beginning of our trip, information on Saint Spyridon, the Venetians, the 4.500.000 evergreen trees and the route of our private tour is given.

First we visit the church of Taxiarchon in the village of Chlomos in order to enjoy the panoramic view of the southern part of the island. After that, we wander around the traditional village so that we can get a glimpse of the unique architecture and the everyday lives of the locals. Chlomos is also an ideal place to experience the traditional Greek coffee along with the magical liquid which accompanies it that only the people living in the villages of Corfu know about.
Following our quick break, we visit the rest of the villages of the south on a route that is full of olive oil groves, covering the 70% of the island’s vegetation. Our next stop is Pontiglio Winery (Mpampis Kouris), a small charming vineyard where we get to taste the local wine before arriving in the lake Korission. Lake Korission is a unique place in Corfu as it stretches on the left side of Halikounas beach and has a very rich ecosystem. It is also protected by Natura 2000 due to its rare flora and fauna.

It wouldn’t be a tour of the south of Corfu if we did not stop at the village of Agios Matthaios and more specifically at “the Governor”. Here, Dafnis family produces its own olive oil and we get to try it out through a unique olive oil tasting experience. The family business is very popular not only in Greece but also around the world as the famous bottles with Ioannis Kapodistrias illustrated are being sold even at Harrods in London.

After this one of a kind experience, we visit the traditional village of Pentati where Sofia will prepare for us local delicacies as we get to enjoy the endless blue of the Ionian Sea. This will be our last stop before returning to our starting point in Moraitika, on a route filled with nature’s greatest miracles, lush landscapes and picturesque woods.
