What's Ainos National Park like

Ainos national park is based around Mount Ainos, sometimes known as Mount Aenos, and offers spectacular scenic views of Kefalonia island.

Ainos is the tallest mountain in Kefalonia and is roughly a mile high. It’s great for hiking and there’s lots of wildlife to see whilst there including herds of goats, wild horses as well as several birds such as Griffon vultures, buzzards, Eleonora’s Falcons and the huge Eagle Owl. The forests are made up of mainly dark Kefalonian Fir trees (Abies cephalonica).
In 1962 the Greek government declared the Ainos forest a national park and therefore protected it by law.

It’s possible to get to the top of Mount Ainos in a basic hire car but there are some tracks that require a 4×4 or quadbike to get along.

If you decide to make the journey to the top then it’s worth noting that there’s no facilities up there so remember to take some water and snacks with you. It’s also quite difficult to reach the very top, you can’t drive all the way up so you have to hike the last little bit and it can be tricky with lose gravel under foot and rocks that you have to climb over.
