If you are staying at the heart of the island in the Sami or Pylaros regions and want to explore the island or Ithaka without driving taking an excursion is a great way to do it! We can arrange four different excursions that include pick-up and drop-off from convenient locations in Agia Efimia, Karavomylos and Sami.

Enjoy the romantic and cosmopolitan atmosphere of Fiskardo by Night.

Travelling through traditional villages on route to Fiskardo you will make two stops for photo opportunities – there are some amazing views to savour! Spend a few hours exploring this quaint and picturesque fishing village, it’s easy to stroll around as the flat harbour front is where most of the action takes place. You’ll have enough time to peruse the shops and boutiques, enjoy a cocktail, have a meal on the harbour side and watch the world go by and the yachts of the rich and famous come and go from the port! If you feel more energetic you can explore and admire the colourful pre-earthquake houses in the backstreets, or take in the Roman Cemetery or the Venetian Lighthouse and Byzantine Basillica (light permitting).
