Sail the Mediterranean waters around Greece's Cyclades Islands
Give in to dreams of sailing the Greek Islands on this seafaring adventure around the renowned Cyclades Islands. Bliss out on Mediterranean waters, swim in turquoise seas, explore ancient towns and delight in fresh Greek food and culture. From laidback non-touristy islands like Small Cyclades to the vibrant holiday mecca of Mykonos, all holiday bases are covered on this eight-day sailing odyssey.
The sight of a Santorini sunset can turn even the most hardened of souls into a romantic. Walk along the volcanic rim of the island past white villages that cling to plunging cliffs
Sail across the Aegean Sea on a yacht and island hop through the picture-postcard Cyclades. Swim off the side of the boat and let the waves rock you to sleep each night
Feast on fresh seafood at a sleepy waterfront taverna in the Small Cyclades islands, far away from tourists and the rest of the world
Step back in time among the Venetian architecture of Naxos and learn about present-day rural life with a daytrip to a country village
The chic isle of Mykonos invites you to embrace your hedonistic side with its boutique culture and thumping nightlife
As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. If you’re planning to have a late night, it’s a good idea to head into town and experience the local night life.

I would highly recommend Intrepid travel tours to people who would like to meet locals, get off the beaten track, not be tied to a big group and have all the hassles of booking and using local transport removed. We have done several Intrepid tours and thoroughly enjoyed every single one. Their strong point is their high quality tour leaders and their well researched itineraries. Thankyou Intrepid we recommend you to all our friends and family wanting to travel overseas headache free.

I was introduced to Intrepid travel by a friend who highly recommended them. My partner and I much prefer small group travel that exposes us to local life and experiences as much as possible. Intrepid travel offers this and our first ever experience of a sailing adventure with Intrepid will surely have us coming back to plan our next adventure with them!
