4X4 with driver island tour excursion
There is no better way to see hidden parts of Zakynthos than a 4X4 safari.
Your Jeep guide/driver will pick you up from your resort and take you on an excursion of discovery. There are many historic and scenic stops en route, and you will hear all about the history, culture, churches, monasteries, and many other great facts about the island.
The first stop, passing by the village of Lithakia, is Kiliomenos. Here you have the opportunity for a short coffee break before heading to a couple of small traditional villages (by passing the monastery of Yperagathos) like Loucha and Giri, which are surrounded by a lush landscape with pine and olive trees. You will reach the highest point of Zakynthos Vrachionas by driving completely off road in order to enjoy the breathtaking view of the island. Continuing mostly off-road, you will arrive at another traditional village for a 1-hour lunch break (optional). Another interesting sight will be waiting to be discovered next: the monastery of St. Georgios Krimnon, which was established in 1535 by the monks Makarius and Varlaam Beletis. Next on the trip is the famous view over Smugglers' Bay. Take some pictures of this magnificent view. Driving up to the north of the island through the village of Vollimes, you will have the possibility to make a boat trip to the Blue Caves (optional, not included), or alternatively, you can refresh in the crystal-clear water of Makris Gialos. The last stop of the tour is a visit to an organic family farm. It is a farm with a variety of local handmade products waiting to be tested.
Around 16:30 will be the time of your return to your resort.
