MOUNT AINOS GUIDED HIKE
Wednesday May 1st - Thursday October 31st 2024
EXPLORE THE HIGHEST PEAK IN THE IONIAN
Mount Ainos was first declared as a nation park in 1962 and houses the heart of Kefalonia’s rich biodiversity.
The national park of Mount Ainos stretches over 3,000 hectares. It’s highest peak reaches 1,628m. Historically this peak was dedicated to Zues and believed to be the location of many offerings to this god.
This park is home to a unique species of fir tree called Abies Cephalonica which only grows here at altitudes of 600-1600m and covers 2/3 of the park.
Equally as impressive, there’s a high chance that you encounter wild horses during your visit.
The drive to the mountain is about 45 minutes each way. On this hike you will be taken along the peak of the mountain, giving you an incredible view all the way down to the beach. You will see the whole island, surrounding island and sometimes even mainland Greece. You will be given a packed breakfast to enjoy on this memorable experience.
