"Experience unique fun activities and adventure while exploring the Cyclades islands…"
Escape to the magical Cyclades islands and create long lasting memories for yourself and your loved ones. Combine exhilarating fun activities and adventure with relaxing beach time, culture, history and fabulous food!
Your adventure begins with a 2-day short break in Athens. Walking around Athens, the cradle of Western civilisation and the birthplace of democracy, feels like exploring a lively, open-air museum. Every step you take leads to a fascinating monument. Our guide will take you away from the touristic areas and show you the hidden gems of Athens and beyond…
You will then continue to mountainous Naxos, the largest and most multi-faceted island in the Cyclades, where you’ll stay for a week at a lovely guesthouse by the beach! You will discover lofty mountains, fertile valleys, springs, picturesque villages, Venetian towers, ancient sites, endemic wildlife, remote bays and long sandy beaches… while at the same time you enjoy swimming, sailing, birdwatching, scuba diving, sea kayaking, windsurfing or kitesurfing, cycling… the choices are endless! We’ll create the ideal holiday for you based on your desired activities!
Your second week is spent on the island of Amorgos, in the Small Cyclades, which until recently was very isolated so it still remains quite unspoilt… a small heaven of peace, Greek hospitality and traditional culture. You will stay at the beautiful bay of Aegiali and experience fun activities in order to exploit the island’s natural wonders. You’ll discover rustic villages, medieval paths, magnificent beaches and landscapes, water sports, deserted islets and of course delicious local food!
Join our unique 2 week multi-activity adventure holiday specially designed for small groups or families! All the activities are professionally guided and supervised, so parents feel very confident in the safety aspect.
You’ll also experience a food tour around Athens’ old neighborhoods, central vegetables, meat and fish markets, where you will “taste” the true soul of the Greek diet by trying lesser-known delicacies and popular traditional dishes!
You’ll continue your walk to Mitropolis square, where ruins from Naxos’ Mycenaean capital have been excavated dating from 1300 BC and end the walk at the islet of Palatia and the unfinished Temple of Apollo (6th century BC). This is the best place on the island to watch the sunset! Enjoy a lovely supper at one of our favourite local taverns and try Naxos’ famous local agricultural products.
While at the top, in clear days, you can see all the Cycladic islands that surround Naxos. Zas is an important hideout and nesting place for many migratory and resident birds such as the Griffon vulture which we hope you will have the chance to observe! Take the downhill path at the other side of the mountain to reach the village of Filoti where you can have lunch at its picturesque square…
Distance: 8.8 km, 2.50h walking time, 5-6h actual walking time with stops to rest and lunch. Moderate.
After a long break, you’ll continue to the pretty village of Chalki with its neoclassical architecture and Venetian towers. Your tour will end with a visit to the local distillery, a local cheese maker and a delicious desert at the traditional ‘kafenio’…
If you want a more challenging route, there are exhilarating trails to follow inland towards the more mountainous areas.
At Galini you will find one of our favourite family taverns on the island. The owner is an exceptional cook with a unique personality. They grow their own organic vegetables and have their own animals. You will go to their garden in order to collect the ingredients for the cooking course, which is of course followed by a delicious meal!
If you are an experienced diver, you’ll discover the magical underwater world of the Aegean by diving into a colourful cavern full of corals, sponges, starfishes, nudibranchs and tube worms, sea anemones, scorpion fishes and other ‘micro’ attractions…
You’ll walk along the spine of the island, pass medieval hotels, deserted villages, breathtaking views and incredible landscapes till you reach the bay of Aegiali… our favourite hike on the island which is famous for its trails. You’ll be rewarded with a refreshing swim and lunch upon arrival at the beach!
