Melissani Cave, Kefalonia, Greece

Legend has it that this cave once was a home to the Greek God Pan and his several nymphs.  As you enter this cave in a small, wooden boat you will find yourself under the golden sun and surrounded by luminous, crystal clear turquoise waters. The water is so clear, that it will look like your boat is floating on a transparent surface which creates magical and mystical atmosphere, as it is something that you would have never seen before.

Drogarati Cave, Kefalonia, Greece

A cave that once was a home to a dragon can now be explored in Kefalonia. The entrance of this rocky cave was erupted by an earthquake that happened over 300 years ago. As you step inside, you will feel the heat of the ‘dragon’s breath’, as the temperature is 18 degrees. There is great beauty in there, as the cave is lit up with the colour orange and the stalactites create a patterned yet picturesque canvas.

Step into the ‘Sistine Chapel of Crystals’ and let it take your breath away. This cave was discovered inside Naica mountain and holds the largest natural crystals in the world, which are at least 36 feet tall.

These ice caves are a must on your to do list. They are the biggest ice caves known to man. Before they were discovered, they were once hidden in the Tennengebirge Mountains and stretch to over 40 kilometres. Even though all the caves aren’t open to the public, you still have the chance to visit just a small part of it. Be prepared for the cold and a great journey of adventure.
