Greece // The Ionian Islands //

Mount Énos and around

At 15km from a point halfway along the Argostóli–Sámi road, Mount Énos isn’t really a walking option but roads nearly reach the official 1632m summit. The mountain has been declared a national park, to protect the Abies cephalonica firs named after the island, which clothe the slopes. There are absolutely no facilities on or up to the mountain but the views from the highest point in the Ionian islands out over Kefaloniá’s neighbours and the mainland are wonderful. Out of summer, watch the weather, which can deteriorate with terrifying speed.
