Day 1: Meeting on our boat, based in Vassiliki, Lefkas. Briefing and arrangement of provisions. Departure for the isolated island of Kastos (population: 80 people). We stop for a swim on the way in the clear turquoise waters of Agiofili, one of the sandy coves of Vassiliki. We spend the night in the beautiful village of Kastos and sample the local fish delicacies.
Day 2: Sail to the uninhabited island of Atokos where we will stop for a swim, a chance to snorkel and a barbeque. After that, we continue for the cosmopolitan port of Fiscardo in Cephalonia. There you can taste the incredible local delicacies and walk through the picturesque 19th century houses set amidst fragrant pine groves.
Day 3: We sail to the island of Ithaka, once the home of Ulysses. We'll anchor at the spectacular beach of Gremni where you can swim at the foot of the dramatic cliffs and relax on the beautiful, fine white sand. Next stop, the fishing village of Kioni in Ithaka, well-known for its attractive huddle of white washed houses.
Day 4: An early start for our sail to Oxia, a tiny island off the delta of the river Acheloos on the mainland. Here you will enjoy the stunning surroundings and utter isolation except for a few fishing boats. We will then sail by night to the main port of Ithaka.
Day 5: Arrival at the main port of Ithaka at sunrise and spend the day exploring the Nymphes cave. You'll also have the choice of visiting a unique home-museum - run by a local school teacher in the town of Stavros - which houses a collection of items excavated on the site of Ulysses' palace.
Day 6: Next we sail to the fishing island of Kalamos to spend a relaxing day snorkelling and swimming. We recommend a short trek to the top of the hill to watch the beautiful sunset, followed by a farewell dinner in the local tavern by the sea.
Day 7: Sail back to our base, the little port of Vassiliki. The above itineraries are just examples of what you can experience in Greece. Send us details of the islands you wish to visit, where you wish to finish you trip and let's work together to create the ideal journey for you. Our skipper is highly experienced and happy to adjust the trip according to what you are looking for in your holiday, of course, if the weather and other external factors beyond his control permit it. And never forget that those "unexpected" surprises can often be the highlight of your trip!
