Description

Melissani Lake and Dogarati Cave Your journey of discovery begins with a scenic ride past the vineyards, olive orchards and cypress groves dotting the lush Greek countryside as you make your way to the shores of Lake Melissani. Along the way you will enjoy spectacular views as you cross Mt. Ainos, one of the highest peaks in Greece. Once at Lake Melissani you will descend into a manmade tunnel and board a small rowboat for a closer look at a majestic cavern known as the Cave of the Nymphs thanks to ancient Minoan relics recovered from the cave that depict nymphs along with the god Pan. When the sun shines down into the cave the brackish water turns into a beautiful aquamarine blue hue. While here you can admire the numerous stalactites and stalagmites that hang from chamber ceilings. Continue to Drogarati Cave, a breathtaking 2-million-year-old cavern discovered about 300 years ago when an earthquake exposed the hidden entrance. Descend nearly 200 feet below surface level to view stunning rock formations and stand at the Sala of Apotheosis. This popular hall is frequently used for concerts and other shows thanks to its perfect acoustics. Sign up today for this half-day tour and bring your camera to capture the underground beauty of Cephalonia's famous caves.
