Sailing and hiking adventure holidays in Greece

Cyclades islands hiking and sailing tours

Combine a sailing & hiking adventure around the islands of the Cyclades…

Experience the unique nature and landscapes of these small, non-touristy Greek islands by walking their ancient paths. Walk at the tips of mountains that offer breathtaking views to the Aegean sea, traditional villages, byzantine and ancient settlements… and reach virgin beaches where you can rest and have a refreshing swim.

Explore the stunning islands of the Cyclades aboard our fully crewed sailing yachts. There is nothing better after a day of great sailing than to relax in the spacious cockpit and enjoy a sun-downer with your fellow sailors, before exploring each new location the islands or the sea have to offer.
