OverviewHide
Board a rowboat and paddle into a mysterious realm of jutting stalactites and soaring stalagmites on this guided exploration of Glyfada Cave. Known by locals as Vlihada, this underground lake set in the recesses of the Bay of Diros was first discovered toward the end of the 19th century. While the total length of its waterways still remains a mystery, this expedition journeys a full mile into the cave, guided by twinkling electric light. Glide gently beneath a glow that illuminates the cave’s dazzling display of geological formations, including brilliant white columns rising from the lake’s surface. Experience the thrilling sensation of a subterranean exploration deep into one of the most amazing natural wonders of Greece.
