    Tour Description

    The Aegean Sea Sail and Hike tour is a lifetime experience! Sail through some of the most pristine Greek islands and explore them by sea and land! Your adventure will be like a modern Odysseus or Jason sailing from one island to another and hiking through amazing sceneries. 

    Imagine embarking on an unforgettable sailing tour through the breathtaking waters of Greece, where every moment is infused with beauty, history, and the charm of the Aegean Sea.

    Your journey begins in Athens, the ancient heart of Greece. As you set sail from the bustling port of Piraeus, you’ll feel the gentle breeze of the Mediterranean against your skin and the anticipation of adventure ahead. Your experienced crew, perhaps consisting of local sailors, will guide you through this maritime odyssey.

    Together we will navigate to the lesser-known gems of the Cyclades, such as Milos, with its captivating lunar landscapes and hidden sea caves, or Serifos with its picturesque beaches and traditional villages. Each island offers its own unique blend of history, natural wonders, and authentic Greek hospitality.

    Throughout your sailing tour, you’ll be treated to sumptuous Greek cuisine, featuring fresh seafood, sun-ripened produce, and traditional delicacies bursting with flavour. Whether dining onboard under a canopy of stars or sampling local specialties at quaint tavernas ashore, each meal is a celebration of the rich culinary traditions of the Mediterranean.

    As the sun dips below the horizon on the final evening of your voyage, reflecting hues of orange and pink across the tranquil waters, you’ll find yourself filled with a profound sense of gratitude for the unforgettable experiences and cherished memories created along the way.

    For in Greece, the journey is not just about the destinations—it’s about the beauty of the voyage itself, where every day unfolds like a timeless story on the canvas of the Aegean Sea.

     

    Level of difficulty

    Hiking
    We curated this experience for people who enjoy trekking. You should be in good physical condition. The walking trails are a mixture of dirt tracks and well-constructed stone mule paths. Along the coast, we walk on the sand for some stretches — a good walking pole may be useful. Relatively easy hikes, 3 to 5 hours per day. This a good start for a first trekking holiday.*

    *If you don’t want to hike, you can just hang out on the boat or enjoy the warm Aegean waters.

    Sailing
    No sailing experience necessary. Those who are already familiar boating are more than welcome to assist our certified skipper throughout the journey. This trip is also a great opportunity for people with no experience to learn the fundamental principles of the art of sailing.
