Our meeting point will be Mavili Square and our first destination will be Perama and Amphithea. For those who wish to visit Liggiades villages, this is the point where the most demanding but also the most beautiful part of our tour starts. As we pedal uphill on our e- bikes towards Mitsikeli mountain we feel astonished by the view to Ioannina city and the lake with the little island. Once we reach the village, we will have a stop for coffee, tea and homemade cakes. Afterwards, we will head back for Amphithea, we will ride our e-bikes along the lake to Durachani Monastery and finish at the city of Ioannina. If you prefer the second option, we will cross Amphithea village and head for Durahani Monastery. There, we will take a short stop at the historic monastery and continue pedaling through rural settlements until we reach the lakeside and meet Tonia and Nikos of Plegadis birding tour company, who will initiate us to the observation and recognition of well-known and unknown birds species living at the lake, such as great crested grepes, cormorants, ferrruginous ducks, lesser kestrel. Afterwards, we will pedal along the lakeshore and we will say farewell feeling overwhelmed by enthusiasm and excitement generated by the unique pictures and knowledge gained throughout this tour.
