  • By private boat visit Delos, where you will be able to get a complete view of its monuments and archaeological remains
  • An introduction to the very distinct characters of Mykonos Island with an e-Bike tour and organic farm lunch

Mykonos is a Mediterranean island sizzling with mischief. Over the years this Cycladean paradise has become synonymous with long lunches in the Greek sunshine, the ultimate Greek beaches and Greek mythology.

Start your holiday in Greece on the iconic island of Mykonos. With so much to see and do, it won’t take you long to settle on why this island holds such high regard to beach and island lovers around the globe. During your nights on the island, you will enjoy a private tour of the historic vineyard of Maou and hop on your own private boat for a day cruising the coastline with snorkel, floating barbecue and flexibility to stop wherever you wish. A must is hopping off at the island of Delos, the Sacred Island of Antiquity. The island of Delos holds a very important place in ancient Greek history and is a must for first-time visitors to Mykonos. Two and a half thousand years ago, this was a sacred spot, drawing pilgrims from Athens, Rome and all around the Mediterranean.

Day 4 - 6: Paros, Greece

  • Join a local fisherman with 22 years of experience aboard his boat for an evening foraging for your evening feast. En route, you will see the blue lagoon of Panteronisia as well as the beautiful Faragas Beach
  • Stay up until dawn in Naoussa, start with honey-glazed cheese pies, slow-cooked chickpeas and Cycladic wines at family-run tavernas right by the sea

Páros has a bit of everything you would want and expect from an island in the Cyclades archipelago – whitewashed villages, blue-domed churches, white beaches and azure blue ocean, fishing harbours overlooked by taverna tables, and importantly, lively bars and cafés.

A hop skip and a 40-minute ferry from Mykonos and you will reach the island of Paros. Whilst on the island, you will have the opportunity to experience the island with a private guide, explore Paros away from the ocean. The real soul of Paros lies inland, between the medieval villages of Marpissa, Prodromos and Lefkes. Poised on a pine-studded hilltop, Lefkes is the ultimate Cycladic cliché, in the best possible sense!

On your final afternoon on Paros, we have chartered you a traditional fishing boat for a sunset ride, fish and feast on board. The boat is skippered by a local fisherman who will show you how to cast nets and cook your catch on board. Whilst on the water, of course, there will be plenty of opportunity for snorkelling and swimming.

Unmissable for watersport enthusiasts, on Paros’ south-east coast, Golden beach and its neighbour New Golden beach offer ideal conditions for competitive windsurfers, undeterred by an offshore swell. Or for those looking to stretch their legs out of the water, hiking the Byzantine road from Lefkes is a must, the route is a 1,000-year-old footpath paved with weathered Parian marble.

Day 7 - 9: Santorini, Greece

  • Enjoy a guided walking tour along Santorini’s hiking path, which runs along the edge of the caldera between Fira and Oia to take in the Caldera from all angles
  • A final evening to remember, witness the famous Santorini sunset from the water whilst sailing on a private yacht

It would not be bold to declare that the iconic Caldera of Santorini is on all travellers bucket lists. The humble yposkafa, vaulted houses sculpted from ash, pumice stone, solidified lava and sand, have long since the volcanic eruption that made the island so distinctive been transformed into impressive cave hotels and award-winning restaurants with the best view of the sunset.

A final Greek ferry to your final Greek island stop, Santorini. Perhaps the most iconic island of them all. You will be staying at Santorini’s star attraction – its most attractive village, Oia. The town must be one of the most magnificent hotel settings on Earth, with its converted peasant houses on the very edge of the crater and spectacular sunsets that draw coach parties from across the island.

On your first full day, if you can drag yourself away from the view you will have the opportunity to experience it from some new angles with a private hiking guide taking you along the coastline to Fira. Fira is the capital of Santorini and the clifftop location offers some of the best views of the nearby Nea Kameni, an active volcanic island to the west. Congratulations, you have earnt yourself some well-earnt poolside time. If you are still up for some more Santorini experience, we can book you into some wine tasting at one of the up and coming wineries on the island, the unique soil allowing for the production of some unique and delicious wines.

For your final afternoon, board your own sailing boat complete with an expert crew. You will leave Vlychada and get to Oia to catch the sunset, with time for swimming from the boat and a delicious Greek lunch.
