Ithaca - Sport & Activities


In line with the uncommercial nature of the region organised sports are not easily found, however Ithaca is a trekker’s paradise. The perfect way to explore the island is on foot, following the vast array of marked (& unmarked) trails. Trails lead directly from Vathi town across to some stunning bays, accessible only on foot or by the sea.

Motor boats in Ithaca

In our opinion the use of a motor boat completes the whole Ithaca experience, offering a unique and unusual opportunity to explore the island from a different vantage point – discovering its many bays and inlets which are often completely deserted. In addition, they can even be used to visit Cephalonia. Boats are available to hire locally in Vathy & Polis Bay .
