Kefalonia Island Experience
Kefalonia Island Experience
The best way to see the island and discover the highlights of it is to join us on our Kefalonia Island Experience.
We will take you to many of the hotspots of this magical emerald island and you too will fall in love with Kefalonia as many have done before.
Kefalonia Island Experience will start the morning at Drogarati caves, a huge natural underground formation where you will have time to explore and also enjoy a coffee.
Then we will visit the monastery of Agios Gerasimos; the patron saint of Kefalonia, also the saint of the insane. You can learn all about him, if you’re feeling brave enough visit the cave beneath the monastery where he lived for many years and if you’re lucky on the day you visit even worship his body.
The monastery lies in a tranquil valley, also home to the Robola winery where we will have a tour of the factory before sampling all of the wines on offer – a perfect chance to take gifts home for loved ones. After that we will visit the Saint’s George‘s castle, which is builted in 16th century and then we will go in Argostoli through picturesque villages that you should definitely see.
Lunch will be enjoyed in the capital town of Argostoli where you can choose to relax and unwind on the main square to watch the world go by, or perhaps head to the waterfront to try and spot the famous sea turtles that visit the lagoon.
After lunch we will stop above Myrtos beach, one of the most photographed beaches in the Mediterranean that was made famous by the film ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’. You will be spellbound by the white beach, turquoise seas and sheer white cliffs that make this such a spectacular spot.
We will finish the day with a visit to the Melissani lake, one of the most beautiful delights of Kefalonia and also a part of the geological phenomenon we have here on the island. Melissani (also known as the cave of the nymphs) is a breathtaking underground lake. As you sail around on a small boat this time of the day is perfect to see the sunlight shine through the opening at the top of the cave and hit the crystal clear water making it an outstanding bright turquoise color.
The lake is very cold and quiet … you will feel as though you are visiting a fantasy world.
Our Island Experience is sure to leave you mesmerized by this beautiful island and wanting to return like so many others, time and time again.
