Travellers and activities
As in many places in Greece, winemaking in Lefkada dates to ancient times, and thanks to its rugged terrain, which generates significant rainfall in winter, the island has the ideal climate for the famous red Vertzami and white Vardea grapes to flourish. There are three wineries that welcome guests: Karsanikos and Sifloko in the north, where red wines predominate, and Lefkas Earth Winery in the south, where probably the most exquisite Vardea grapes in the world are cultivated. The Lefkas Earth Winery near Fterno offers a free tour of its elegant stone buildings to see old presses, modern stainless-steel tanks, and an automated bottling line. The entire range of wines produced here is available to taste and buy, so make sure to establish in advance that you are not driving back!Lefkada for mountain bikers
Almost three-quarters of Lefkada's terrain is rugged and mountainous and packed with trails, which is symphonious music to the ears of die-hard mountain bikers! No one in their right mind would bring a mountain bike on a low-cost flight, but there are a couple of adventure sports companies, like Get Active in Nydra, that will hook you up with your own set of wheels and all the safety gear you need. Don’t miss the trail to the Nydri waterfall through a gentle landscape of olive groves, then climb to the top of the mountain above and descend at high speed!Lefkada for watersports enthusiasts
Practically every beach on the island offers travellers excellent watersports opportunities: you can rent equipment for surfing, diving, kayaking, as well as enjoying boating, water skiing or yachting. Besides that, you can take a fishing trip, or simply go snorkelling along the glittering crystal-clear waters of Lefkada. So lovers of an active holiday have come to the right place!
Lefkada is connected to the mainland by a long causeway and floating bridge, so easy to get to if you have rented a car on the mainland!
Top 7 travel tips in Lefkada
A Greek island in the Ionian sea? – you know what that means, right? Unbelievably spectacular beaches and exotic crystal-clear warm water! The beaches on the western side of the island are the most impressive ones due to their deep blue colour, with Katsiki beach being the number one choice.2. Get a bird’s eye view of Lefkada
Discover the island of Lefkada from the air with a paragliding session. A tandem flight with an experienced pilot along the coast is bound to be the highlight of your holiday.3. Immerse yourself in the most beautiful nature at Cape Lefkatas
Cape Lefkatas, which gives the island of Lefkada its name, boasts white cliffs that rise up to 70 meters from the sea, a dramatic setting that has been significant to islanders since in ancient times. Nowadays it is the wildest part of the island and a veritable Promised Land for hikers.4. Take in some ancient Greek history
Lefkada Archaeological Museum is home to much of the material found in the caves and ancient cities on the island, such as Nydri and Meganisi. The exhibits date from the Middle Paleolithic, tens of thousands of years ago, to late Roman times, and are a real treat for history buffs and those who simply want to learn more about the ancient history of this fascinating island.5. Visit Lefkada’s spiritual home
Situated on top of a hill ten minutes from the city of Lefkada, Panagia Faneromeni Monastery houses an icon of the Virgin Mary, the island's patron saint. Spiritually significant to Lefkada for thousands of years, it now contains an ecclesiastical museum with artifacts such as vestments, chalices and manuscripts.6. Enjoy one of the island’s most popular hikes
Take the easy, illustriously scenic hike from the seaside town of Nydri to Nydri Falls, which are carved into a spectacular gorge. The trail will take you through fragrant citrus and olive groves and then into the narrow ravine, where you will have to jump over the slippery rocks. At the place where the trail enters the gorge there is a wonderfully located cafe to cool off and prepare for the last section of the hike.7. Take a boat tour of Thai fighting
A few things come together to make Lefkada a truly great place to go on boat tour or charter your own bareboat yacht. In the Ionian Sea, off the east coast, there is a small archipelago of islands boasting a very jagged coastline with dozens of deserted coves and the resplendent Papanikolis sea cave. This is Greek holidaying at its most memorable. Bathe in the warm, transparent waters then climb back onboard for a delicious lunch of fresh fruit, souvlaki and tzatziki!
