What you can expect

Explore the Ionian Island of Kefalonia on this guided day-long adventure. Stop at the Monastery of Agios Gerasimos, visit the natural and ancient sites of Drogarati Cave and Melissani Cave, and lunch in the town of Aghia Efimia before making your way to Argostoli, the island's capital.

Your day begins with pick-up from your hotel and a ferry ride to Pessada on Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands. Upon arrival, climb into a vehicle and visit the Monastery of Agios Gerasimos, the patron saint of Kefalonia. Your guide tells you about the history of the 450-year-old church, which is considered one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites on the island.

Next, head to the Drogarati Cave, a remarkable site known for its impressive stalactites and stalagmites. Estimated to be 150 million years old, the cave features a natural platform called the Royal Balcony that overlooks an enormous chamber sometimes used for concerts and events. Continue exploring Kefalonia's ancient wonders with a visit to the coastal Melissani Cave. Drift into the cave by boat and observe the phenomenon of the turquoise water reflecting beautifully off the walls.

After the caves, take a stroll through the fishing village after dining, or go straight to your final destination in Argostoli. Spend time on your own in the capital, exploring its picturesque squares and breath-taking coastal views, before journeying to Pesseda again for the return ferry to Zakynthos.
