SAILING MEETS GREEK HERITAGE

A SAILING JOURNEY BACK IN TIME

There are literally hundreds of good reasons to visit Greece. Two that stand out though are its impressive history that literally influenced life as most of the world knows it today and its incredible natural beauty that features thousands of islands, endless blue sea and sunshine on 300 days per year. In our “Sailing meets Greek heritage” trip you have the opportunity to experience both. Sail on a luxurious new catamaran or monohull sailing yacht, relax on deck under the warming sun, stop in secret bays for a swim in crystal clear waters and visit the most important historic monuments and UNESCO Heritage sites, such as the Acropolis in Athens, the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, and Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece. Professional tour guides will travel you back to time and share with you their deep insights and passion for Ancient Greek history.

THE EXPERIENCE

Please see below some of the highlights that will make this trip truly unique. All elements of the journey are of course customizable. Please contact us for more information.
