Go island hopping to the stunningly beautiful island of Kefalonia, just a short sail away to the north of Zakynthos. Kefalonia beckons with a rural landscape rich in colour, set amid towering peaks and unspoilt beaches.
Two of Kefalonia’s most famous sites are deep underground. Take a walk through the stalagmites and stalactites of the Drogerati Cave, whose acoustics continue to amaze despite the passage of a million years.
A row boat across Lake Melissani promises to be a surreal experience as the sun lights up this aquamarine underground lake, creating a stunning reflection of the colors.
Free time in Argostoli, the island’s capital town, for lunch, shopping, relaxation or a walk along the harbour front bring a perfect day to an end.
The tour begins from Mediterranean Laganas. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, set out in an air-conditioned vehicle to the pier from where you will board a boat that will take you to the island of Kefalonia.
The journey takes an hour-and-a-half.
On arrival at Kefalonia, set out to explore this magical paradise.
The highlights of your tour are:
• Caves of Drogarati: These amazing caves are said to be 150 million years old and local myth has it that it was once the home of a dragon. The caves house some of the most spectacular multi-colored stalactites ever seen. Hanging from the roof, these snaking, ice wonders still remain in the large underground chamber. The acoustics of these ancient caves is so amazing that they are used as venues for cultural events even today!
• Underground Lake and Cave of Melissani: This subterranean lake and cave is one of the most idyllic places, previously buried deep in the earth. A tunnel offers easy passage to small boats carrying visitors to admire the spectacular sight of the stalactites and the changing kaleidoscopic colors of the water. Enjoy a 15-minutes cruise on the transparent waters of the lake and see the sun’s rays create magical hues on its surface.
Stop to take in the view of Myrtos Beach, one of the most photographed beaches in Greece.
Enjoy some free time in Argostoli, the island’s capital town. Wander around its myriad cafes and eateries for lunch (Payable direct), shopping, relaxation or just a walk along the harbour front.
