After a pickup from your hotel by your private vehicle, we will begin our journey with a visit to the Achillion Palace.

Still in the north-west of the island, we take in the sensational views from Bella Vista, before crossing the rugged northern landscape of the island, to arrive at its north-eastern corner, in the traditional village of Kassiopi. Here, together with the ancient ruins of the castle, you will find a charming fishing harbour, tavernas offering locally caught fresh fish, and a wonderful range of shops.
