Greek Islands Multisport Tour
Hike, horseback ride and sea kayak in the most beautiful of the Greek Islands
Discover the beauty of the iconic Cyclades Islands by horseback, foot, kayak, and boat, stopping along the way to savor a meal made from traditional recipes with your very own hands, a sip of ouzo by sunset, sandy beaches, and cliff-side views of the Aegean from Santorini.
Days 1-2: Athens and the Acropolis
Welcome to Greece! The next two days will be an immersion in the unique history and culture of the city that preserves some of the most important surviving monuments of the western world. From the heart of Athen's oldest neighborhood, we take in the sights of street merchants, the aromas of fresh Greek cuisine, and the inspiring views of the ancient Acropolis.
Days 3-4: Paros Island
After a half-day tour of the ancient Acropolis, we ferry from the bustling metropolis of Athens across the aquamarine waters of the Aegean Sea to the tranquil and picturesque island of Paros. We explore the island's quaint fishing villages, beaches, and rolling hills by horseback and hiking trail. The sights, sounds, and flavors of Greece collide in our cooking class featuring traditional Greek recipes. Our meal coupled with a glass of local wine and views of the Aegean will be the reward of our labor.
Days 5-8: Santorini Island
After breakfast, we head to Proikia to explore the famous Byzantine Church of Ekantotapillani with some time for sight-seeing before catching our ferry to Santorini Island. We disembark on the main island of Fira, surrounded by the crescent-shaped islands that make up the archipelago. We navigate the turquoise waters of Santorini by sea kayak, hike along the coastline from Fira to Oia, taste local wines atop the caldera cliff face, and cruise to the islet of Nea Kameni to hike the volcano.
