If you drive up the hills, from Meseo Karlovasi through Lekka, ca. 2 km later you turn right for Kosmadei. The next ca. 6 km offer a great trip up in the mountains, through old green woods and along some newer chapels. Kosmadei is a village, that impresses with great views & walks, 600 meters above the sea. From here you can reach the Kakoperato Canyon Cave in ca. 90 minutes. A great trip through nature, all around the Samosian mountains. Definitely no Barefoot- or Flip-Flop-Area!
I had my camera fixed on my forehead, and the result was a lot of hectic moves. But that was part of the game.

If you land in Kosmadei someday, don’t miss to visit the unique tavern at the parking spot. Because this old lady’s living room bar restaurant taverna is a real institution in this village – to me.
