Greece Island Adventure

9 days from £1,795

Sand beaches, ancient ruins and sublime sunsets

With crystalline waters, cubist whitewashed houses and soaring limestone cliffs, the Cyclades are undoubtably the Greek islands at their most iconic. This island-hopping adventure showcases the best of Mykonos, Ios and Santorini over 9 sun-soaked days, as well as immersing you in history in Athens. Step back in time at the Acropolis, bake yourself on black sand beaches, party the night away in Mykonos’ glamorous beach clubs, sample delicious local wines, and watch the sun go down over Santorini’s blue-domed churches. Oh, and did we mention the private boat trip with prosecco picnic on a hidden beach? The Cyclades are calling.


Highlights include

The Parthenon
Mykonos beach clubs
Ios boat trip
Prosecco picnic

Accommodation & Meals

We’ve hand-picked a selection of gorgeous, boutique accommodation for this trip. In Athens you’ll stay right in the heart of the city, with views of the Acropolis, and on the islands, you’ll never be more than a stone’s throw from a beautiful beach, with everything from pools, sun terraces and your own nightclub at your disposal! All rooms are on a twin or double share basis with private bathrooms.

  • Athens (2 nights): Centrally located hotel with a sauna, gym, and rooftop terrace that’s perfect for sundowners looking out over the Acropolis.
  • Mykonos (2 nights): Lively resort with two bars and its own nightclub, just 2 minutes’ walk from one of the most famous beaches on the island.
  • Ios (2 nights): Airy resort with swimming pool and three bars, just 1 minute from a stunning white sand beach.
  • Santorini (2 nights): Stylish low-level hotel close to the beach with pool, and sun terrace with views over the Aegean.

The above information is only intended to be used as a guide, giving you a flavour of some of our accommodation providers, and the style of accommodation you may be staying in. Please note that all nights are subject to change.

Lots of our travellers are solo travellers, so when you book with us, we’ll pair you up with a like-minded roommate of the same sex. Our trips are great for couples or friends as well - just let us know you’re together, so we can be sure to put you in the same room.

Meals

8 breakfasts and 1 lunch are included on this trip. The rest of the time you’ll have the freedom to eat wherever and whenever you like.

Greeks are well known for their love of food and feeding others. With flavour packed dishes made with local ingredients from Mediterranean vegetables to olive oil and cheeses, you’re guaranteed to never feel hungry while you’re here. Try souvlaki skewers hot off the grill, a bubbling moussaka, lemony stuffed vine leaves, and a flaky spanakopita (filo pie filled with spinach and feta). With veggie delights such as stuffed peppers, tzatziki, and the ubiquitous Greek salad, plant-based travellers are every bit as well catered for as their meat loving counterparts.
