Here is a sample of what you'll experience while sailing & hiking with us for a week around the Greek islands.
Day 1: Meeting at the island of Naxos in the evening. Briefing, arrangement of provisions and supper at one of our favourite taverns in the old town. Check the island's beaches, enjoy a short walk to the temple of Apollo and watch the sunset or walk around the picturesque alleys of the old town leading up to the castle.
Day 2: We'll start the day with a visit to one of the island's most picturesque villages, Filoti. Within an easy 2 hour walk you will conquer the Cyclades' highest peak, Zas. The view from the top to the Aegean Sea and the islands of the West and Small Cyclades is really mind blowing. We'll rest and have a picnic admiring the view. We'll then descend towards Agia Marina and go back to the boat. Late in the afternoon we'll sail towards the remote bay of Kalando in the South of Naxos. We'll enjoy a barbecue on the beach.
Day 3: After a morning swim we'll sail to the little fishing port of Iraklia. You have the day to relax and swim and check the island. Early in the evening we'll walk from the hora, Panayia, to the cave of St. John. It's an hour hike to the largest cave of the Cyclades, famous for its formations of stalactites. On our way back to the village we'll enjoy the sunset from the top of the hill. You'll have the chance to enjoy home made food during supper at the local bakery/tavern at Panayia.
Day 4: Sail towards the mountainous island of Amorgos. We'll stop on the way for lunch a swim at the crystal clear blue water of the deserted island of Antikeri. We'll continue our sail towards the fishing port of Aegiali where we'll spend the night. In the evening, you'll enjoy a short hike to the village of Tholaria where we'll enjoy traditional island music and delicious dishes at one of its taverns.
Day 5: Today the day we'll be dedicated to hiking and discovering the island's northeast area which is characterised as Natura 2000 due to its unique flora and nature. We'll start our hike from the beautiful village of Langada. We'll follow the narrow path towards the impressive church of St. Theologos, where we'll rest and have a snack under the shade of one of the church's outhouses. We'll then take the trail towards Stavros enjoying the impressive view of rock formations and deep blue sea underneath. Relax and enjoy one of Aegiali's beautiful beaches for the rest of the day.
Day 6: We'll set sails towards the islands of Koufonisia, known for their crystal clear turqoise waters and beautiful beaches. They also belong to the Natura 2000 network. We'll spend the night on the anchor at one of the beautiful bays of Kato Koufonisi. In the evening we'll enjoy a walk around the island and have supper at the tavern of the only family that lives in the island. They have their own animals and produce all their vegetables and fruits themselves. We don't have words to describe the quality of food you'll taste!
Day 7: Last day sailing towards the island of Paros and the fishing port of Piso Livadi. Early in the evening we'll go to the one of the oldest villages of Paros, Lefkes, and walk for an hour towards the picturesque village of Prodromos. We'll have supper at the local 'cafeneio' and enjoy Greek hospitality and home-made food. If we're lucky locals we'll entertain us with live music!
