This option is a fantastic alternative route to Lefkas if you have time to extend your holiday an extra day to make the journey more manageable. Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands and although famous among Greek and foreign tourists, it still manages to retain its natural qualities – quiet sandy beaches, beautiful seaside towns and welcoming local folk. Kefalonia famously became victim to a major earthquake in 1953 causing huge destruction with almost every building on the island destroyed. The earthquake caused the entire island to be raised 60cm higher out of the water where it now remains. Look carefully at the rocks and you will see the evidence of this!
There are several flights daily to Kefalonia’s Argostoli Airport from the UK and other airports across Europe.
A 1 hour taxi journey starting at €85 across the island from Argostoli to Fiscardo.
There are lots of apartments and luxurious hotels in Fiscardo so spend an evening here before catching the ferry the next day.
Take the West Ferry from Fiscardo Port to Nidri, it costs around €8 and is a scenic 2 hour journey. The timetable is online here.
We are located in Vliho Bay which is just a short trip South in a taxi.
Depending on the start day of your charter, a night spent in a hotel in Nidri is a great way to relax after travelling from Kefalonia.
