In cooperation with a local history teacher we present you the most complete Homeric/historic tour of the island. A travel through history and mythology that every visitor has to experience. The proofs that identify modern Ithaca as the Homeric Ithaca are irresistible.
During our explorations around the island, we always combine outdoor activities. In order to reach remote parts of Ithaca we use a boat and then we hike to the mountains. We also use kayaks to reach sea caves or to start a hike from a beach. Inspired by those adventures we are pleased to offer a series of combo trips. Those trips will make you feel more like a local than a visitor of the island and give you the opportunity to make a full body workout.
