This has been one of our favourite trips for many years giving outstanding views of Poros and a sense of real isolation even in modern Kefalonia. It has been suggested in the local press the road will be tarmaced soon but who knows and maybe making access easy would not be good for the ambience.
For now as you drive down the road towards Poros gorge you will see a small sign pointing to a left turn up to Atros, from there it mostly bumpy track , always climbing and a challenge but can be done in a normal car ( check your insurance for unmade roads!) and when you reach the top you will be spoilt with the most majestic views but also the serenity of the monastery.
