This is a new walk on the beautiful Greek island of Kefalonia, which allows you to cross from the east coast to the west coast in one day. It's mainly on unsurfaced stony roads and some tarmac roads, with information signs at each end, and indicators along the route. However, you need to take care to stay on the route, and this walking story provides useful guidance.
If you're planning on walking there and back in the day, allow about 5 ½ hours and take plenty of water!
