Big Walk Kefalonia (BWK) is an inaugural charity event being organized by local residents of Kefalonia. It is a moderate and fun hike covering about 75 km of Kefalonian trails over 5 days and 4 nights. It is open to all.
The route will lead us through some of the best coastal and rural scenery of Kefalonia. Accommodation details are still being finalized according to numbers. Regular updates will be placed on our Facebook page. Nights will be spent in simple accommodation such as community centres, schools and possibly monastic rooms or simple hotel accommodation in order to take advantage of the most scenic and logistically practical route possible. There is still the possibility that one night may be spent in a cosy campsite and tents may be required.
On the final day of the walk, everyone is invited to join us for the last 10km ‘BIG Family Walk’ into Argsotoli, the capital of Kefalonia. Anyone who cannot commit to the full, 5 day walk is welcome to join us here.
So, dust down your walking boots and get training………….!
The aim of BWK is to raise funds for two small, but effective charities, known personally to us currently working with refugees and homeless people in Greece; Nurture Project International and O Allos Anthropos.
Funds raised will also assist the welfare of stray animals in Kefalonia via Animal Rescue Kefalonia (ARK).
Walk participants will have the choice of selecting which registered charity they will support, Nurture Project International or ARK (or both). All funds raised on the final day, BIG Family Day Walk, (the event created for Kefalonian residents and visitors who feel unable to participate in BIG Walk Kefalonia), will go directly to O Allos Anthropos.
If you love walking in an outstanding, natural environment and want to help, where better than the scenic, Greek island of Kefalonia!
We have a choice to walk – others do not.
Please join us NOW!
BWK will take place over 5 days and 4 nights from Wednesday 12 October 2016 to Sunday 16 October 2016.
BIG Family Day Walk will take place on Sunday 16 October 2016. Further details will be available on our Facebook page
