Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, is a true Greek paradise. Bike blissfully through the Ainos Mountains on a day tour or take a guided tour through the villages of Erissos, Assos, and Agia Efimia for an unparalleled authentic Greek experience.
Named as the home of Odysseus, rather than the smaller island of Ithaca, Kefalonia played a fundamental role during the era of the Byzantine Empire as a crucial strategic base, blocking raids in the Adriatic and aiding the flow of goods and soldiers to Italy. The iridescent island became a full member of the Greek state, along with its fellow Ionian islands, in 1864.
A bike tour of incredible Kefalonia promises adrenaline-fueled, spectacular sightseeing experiences, from the arresting views atop Ainos Mountain to the sensational Sami Geopark, home to caves of crystal-clear waters, a gleaming emerald lake, and dense, mysterious forests. Authentic Greek charm abounds in the exquisite villages of Erissos, Assos, and Agia Efimia, as well as on the truly spellbinding Myrtos Beach, ensuring Kefalonia has no end of wondrous ways to captivate, enchant, and intrigue its visitors.
The best way to explore this extraordinary island is by bike, on a breathtaking day tour of its most divine vistas and superb, sun-kissed scenery, all with the flexibility of bike rental.
