SAIL WEEK GREECE

Get to know the Mediterranean as it once was. One of the oldest European civilizations developed on the Greek islands, so therefore the islands have a unique, distinctive architectural heritage and the ideal climate.

Walk the ancient streets of Athens. Visit the world-famous Acropolis with the Temple of Parthenon and the New Acropolis Museum. Explore Hydra, one of the most authentic places in Greece with no cars allowed on the island. Take a donkey ride and enjoy the most beautiful sunsets. Rent a scooter and discover beaches of Spetses and Poros. Buy fresh seafood straight from the fisherman. Go wine tasting and visit the famous pistachio farms on the Island of Aegina.

Sailing holidays are a unique and unforgettable way to travel. This route is a perfect mixture of socialising and relaxation. You'll be on the boat with like minded people and gain more experience in sailing while being in a relaxed environment with a drink in hand sharing a few laughs.

"It was hands down one of the best trips I have ever been on. The clear blue water, picturesque towns and amazing nightlife were incredible. But what really made the trip was sharing it with the friendliest group of people one could ask for."
