Greece’s Northern Cyclades Islands

Greece

Sail the Aegean Sea and discover some of the Greek Islands' most beautiful hidden gems. The Cyclades are an archipelago, meaning 'encircling islands' as they form a circular shape around the sacred temple on Delos, believed to be the birthplace of the gods Artemis and Apollo. Learn to sail as you travel from one tiny island to the next, stopping to swim in bays surrounded by rugged landscape. Visit ancient ruins and temples, get lost in enchanted white-washed villages with narrow paths full of flowers and feast on some of the highest-rated local fresh Greek cuisine. Let us guide you through the magical northern Cyclades, introduce you to the friendly locals and show you our favourite spots!

The Thrill Seeking Route

Italy

Live la dolce vita as you set sail to the incredible volcanic archipelago known as the Aeolian Islands. Just off the coast of Sicily, this cluster of seven islands were named by the Greek settlers after the god of wind. This UNESCO World Heritage site’s volcanic origins have left it with a dramatic legacy of black sand beaches, smouldering craters and jagged rocky coastlines. These hard-to-reach islands, two of which still have active volcanoes, are surrounded by turquoise and cobalt blue waters that are mostly only accessible by private boat. On this incredible journey, you’ll snorkel in magical blue coves, explore ruins and abandoned villages, feast on fresh seafood and homemade Italian cuisine in picturesque traditional villages, get to know friendly locals and maybe even spot a celebrity or two. But best of all - seize the opportunity to hike up a live volcano to see lava up close and personal, at night!
