Lefkada Micro Farm
One of the most amusing experiences is to participate on a farm tour at Lefkada Micro Farm where you can discover traditional local farming practices and the flavor of truly fresh organic vegetables and fruits. The farm is open to visitors and offers 3 different farm tours. Popular with young children is the Guided walk & product tasting where the kids get to enjoy access to the vegetable and herb gardens and learn a lot about how organic produce is grown and harvested. They can also walk around the centennial olive grove, discover how the farmers produce premium extra virgin olive oil of medicinal quality and taste seasonal vegetables, olive oil and honey. Inspired by what's in season and growing on the farm, the Experiential Cooking Classes invite you to learn the secrets of traditional Greek recipes.

Τhere’s something about getting on the trails! Riding a bike is an ideal form of exercise because it is fun, it appeals to all ages and it improves your physical and mental wellbeing. Lefkada's charming mountain and coastal areas offer many routes for mountain biking and the most important, you will never run out of fantastic views! Lefkada has an amazing fall foliage season that peaks around October. The weather remains pleasant well into September and October but it gets slightly colder day by day. Little by little the leaves are starting to change color and the villages of Lefkada which are carpeted with yellow and orange fallen leaves, look like a postcard.
