Ready, set, sail from Mykonos to Santorini on this Greek Island adventure
Embark on a true sailing adventure through the Greek Islands, a forever favourite with young travellers for various sun-drenched delights. On this 8-day journey you get the perfect mix of sleepy islands, secret spots and iconic nightlife. Knock back cold drinks while the sun sets over the volcanic cliffs of Ios and let the water of the Aegan Sea rock you to sleep each night. Sail between perfectly white towns built into awesome cliffs and anchor off deserted beaches for a secluded swim. Slurp oysters and sip ouzo, and hey, if you happen to over-indulge, there’s nothing like clearing your head with a dip in warm aquamarine waters the next morning.
Sailing is THE way to see these stunning islands. Jump off the side of the boat into the glittering Aegean Sea and let the waves rock you to sleep each night.
Santorini has some of the most crazy beautiful landscapes in the world. Pass bleached-white villages that are stuck to plunging cliffs and along the rim of a volcano.
The remote Small Cyclades islands are chock-full of tavernas serving fresh seafood, far away from sweaty tourists and the rest of the world.
Take a swim off the coast of near-deserted (and allegedly haunted) Rhinia Island.
Grab a snorkel and explore the massive caves and coves of Koufonisis, keeping your eyes peeled for pirate treasure.
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 good 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 (and sea).
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.
