Island Tour (Jeep Safari)

Description:

Odyssey Outdoor Activities can take you on a 4×4 island safari in our 5 seated (including the driver) Mitsubishi L200 pickup truck, in which we cover more than 1/2 of the scenic historic island of Ithaca.

Be closer to nature and the elements with alternative ways to see this fantastic island. Get off the usual tourist trail and experience archaeological sites, old villages, old ruins, well preserved windmills, pre-earthquake architecture and strange ancient Menir monoliths. Drive through vineyards and olive groves,  you will have breathtaking 360 degree views of Ithaca and the nearby islands of Kefalonia, Lefkas, Meganisi, Kastos Kalamos and the mainland of Greece. See many birds and wildlife in their natural habitat. During this experience, you will also learn about the history, culture and traditions of the island from our professional and knowledgeable local guide.

We run island safari trips often upon request and they can be customized to meet your needs, your available time and your interests. The trip is available for 2 people or more. In case of a company of more than 4 people we can add another vehicle for 3 extra people (Suzuki Jimny 4×4).
