Your North Corfu tour begins in Corfu town and makes its first stop at Ipsos, which is the most popular holiday destination on Corfu for young English visitors. Ipsos offers a beautiful sandy beach combined with numerous restaurants, bars, and nightclubs that are open day and night.
Rising above the village is Pantokratoras, the tallest mountain on Corfu island. As the tour continues on to the mountain there is a stop along the way at the traditional village of Spartillas.
A monastery is situated at the top of Pantokratoras, at an altitude of 917 meters . Known as the Monastery of Pantokratoras it now has only a single monk in residence. He will be your guide when you visit the church.
After visiting the monastery, your next stop will be the village of Acharavi, which is set amid pine and olive trees. The village boasts a lovely sand beach, which is one of the longest in Corfu. This is a lively resort that features numerous shops, restaurants, bars, and tavernas.
The final stop on the bus tour is on to the way back to Corfu town. Until recently, Kassiopi village was a quiet and picturesque fishing village with a lovely beach. In recent years it has become increasingly popular and has evolved into a modern tourist resort.
