The agency offers excellent value-for-money adventures on brand new boats, busses, and vehicles, as well as daily outings and activities across Zakynthos and beyond.

Here we are suggesting some of the best Tours & Activities you should do while you are in Zakynthos.

Open-top Jeep safari

Our safari covers the whole island, from South to North and back. We explore the varied terrain from the plains on the eastern side, which merge gently into peaceful days & golden beaches, to the Western side, which is mountainous with steep cliffs along its coastline. During the safari we drive both on and off road carefully and considerately. All guests will be collected from our office in Argassi at a pre-arranged time and then head towards our starting point just inside Laganas. Here instructions will be made & safety procedures will be covered. There will be a short brief on the day’s itinerary before we set off on safari… Our first stop is at the historic Venetian church tower in the beautiful mountain village Kikomenos. Heading off track we visit the village of Loucha & Giri, which is the smallest village on the island, having a population of only 20 people. Here at approx. 10 a.m. we will stop for a short coffee break. Then onwards to our next stop at Vrachiona, the highest point on the island. Where from a height of 1000m (30006) you will be able to view the whole of Zakynthos, Kefalonia & the Greek mainland in the distance.

Heading further north we visit the cross of Kampi & learn the history behind it. You will also be able to take in the magnificent rugged coastline on this side of the island. At 12:30 you either have the option of bringing your own lunch or indulging in the Greek cuisine attired at special prices for our guests. After the lunch break, we drive through Exo Chora, where you will see the oldest olive tree on the island, on Monies, and into the tiny village of Anafonitria. Just outside Anafonitria we have a shortstop with a little wine tasting and see some of our local products such as rugs, lace, honey, and wine. And then one of the most famous sites around the world: Shipwreck, magnificent view of the deep blue sea of the Ionian Sea. Heading on through the village at Volimes our next stop is swimming in the crystal clear waters of Makris Gialos and photo shooting at the famous natural sulfur spring called Xigia (about 30′-40′) and off we go to the naturally collected salt pans of Alykes. By the end of the tour (4pm.) we will have passed by the villages Alykanas, Amoudi, Gerakari, and Kalipado viewing the extensive olive & lemon groves vineyards & plains of picturesque Zakynthos. Throughout the day, our drivers & guides will share with you Zakynthian history & local stories as you explore the island. We can stop on request in any of the villages we are passing through to take photos & answer your questions and provide further information on the history of Greece and Zakynthos. A day out on the Jeep Safari Land Rover Experience is a day of pure escapism, a time to leave all your worries behind & enjoy that feeling of being free & totally relaxed.
