this shore excursion is highly recommended to nature lovers. Discover two of the island's most fascinating landscapes the caves of Drogarati and Melissani.

Starting from the port of Argostoli, passing by the famous bridge of Drapanos, with its obelisk, you’ll take the road leading up the slopes of Mount Ainos, to the Cave of Drogarati, one of the most impressive on the island, lying 60m. below surface, dating more than 2 million years old. Its stalagmites and stalactites, soaking up the mineral components of the rocks, like iron, copper, salt, calcium, etc., as they form, give them the most amazing colours and formations.

A steep descending corridor in the cave, leads to a natural balcony overlooking a natural platform approximately 900 sq.m. in size, with ideal acoustics, often used as a venue for concerts.

Following your visit at the cave, you’ll take the coastal road leading to the Cave Lake of Melissani in Karavomylos. On arrival, in the company of your guide, you will walk the short distance down the small tunnel leading to the underground lake where you will board the small wooden boats for the short trip around the lake and the surrounding caves. After your visit, continue to the coastal summer resort of Sami on the north-eastern shores of the island, where the blockbuster movie “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” was filmed. Here, you may rest at one of the “kafenions” (traditional coffee shops) by the old port (coffee or local wine & “mandolata” to be offered – optional) as well as some free time to walk around the “prokymaia” for some souvenir shopping, before you board your coaches for the return transfer back to Argostoli
