Northern Kefalonia (Fiscardo) Cruise | Transfer from Argostoli & Skala
Departing from the small fishing village of Agia Efimia you will have the chance to explore the most secluded part of North-Eastern Kefalonia and Western Ithaka. Our first swim stop on the West coast of Ithaka will reward you for your choice. Next visit will be the famous and picturesque port of Fiscardo for lunch, where you can feel the atmosphere of the Venetian period since that place is the only place on the island that was not ruined by the earthquake of 1953. On our way back we will have the chance to swim in a secluded beach of the eastern part of Kefalonia. ( The transfer is at an additional cost depending on the location of the accommodation)

Free Time-Lunch (optional)
Fiscardo is built on cypress-covered hillsides around hairpin bays and small coves. The village suffered less damage in the 1953 earthquake. Amongst some of the amazing sights to see in Fiscardo are the 19th century church, a stone sarcophagus and a depression in the rock measuring 2.3m deep, which the locals call “the throne of Queen Fiscardo”. From here to high can be seen Daskalio islet, considered to be the Astris of Homer, where – so the myth goes – Penelope’s suitors waited for Telemachus to return. The port of ancient Panormou is first mentioned in Homer, and according to the report by Riemann and Parts, it was today’s Fiscardo.
The harbour is usually full of yachts and quayside tavernas and cafés where you can sit and relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere, brushing shoulders with the world famous jet set.
