The boarding starts in the evening in Mykonos Harbour. Mykonos is the great glamour island and a whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cyclades. According to mythology, Mykonos was formed from the petrified bodies of giants killed by Hercules. And did you know that the island took its name from the grandson of Apollo, “Mykonos”? The island is a paradise for water sport enthusiasts! It is only natural that the “Island of the Winds” should attract surfers and sailors from all over the world!
In the morning after breakfast, you’ll be going for the archaeological site of the nearby island of Delos. It is one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece. The excavations on the island are among the most extensive in the Mediterranean. With UNESCO World Heritage island bears traces of the succeeding civilizations in the Aegean world, from the 3rd millennium B.C. to the palaeochristian era.
Monday: DELOS – NAOUSSA – PAROS
The beautiful picturesque fishing village of Naoussa is located in a huge bay in the northern part of Paros. It is considered to be one of the prettiest villages in the Cyclades and, despite the tourism development, this lovely village has managed to keep its authenticity, its traditional character, and its charm, with its whitewashed and flowered little houses and its tiny whitewashed churches and chapels, surrounded by labyrinth-like narrow, stone-paved streets. The area is as famous for its wine and jam as it is its annual international film festival. Geologically speaking, Paros has long been a Greek star; white marble drawn from the island’s interior made the island prosperous from the Early Cycladic period onwards. Most famously, the Venus de Milo was carved from Parian marble, as was Napoleon’s tomb. When you will dock at Paros port get ready to explore the island of the Cycladic scenery. At night get ready to feel the Ancient Greek experience, with special costumes, taste the local cuisine, or enjoy shisha with your new friends.
WEDNESDAY: NAXOS – KOUFONISIA
Koufonisia is considered as a tiny paradise in the Aegean. Indeed, their Caribbean-like beaches and authentic laid-back feeling fit the above description. Located between Naxos and Amorgos, Koufonisia is part of the Little Cyclades complex. It considers Pano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonisi, and they are separated by a narrow 200 meters wide strait. They were named Koufonisia, because of the existing huge caves which gave the impression to pirates who viewed them from a distance that the islands were hollow!
FRIDAY: IOS – SANTORINI
You will depart from Ios and after sailing for a couple of hours, Santorini will arise for your eyes only! After breakfast, it’s time to explore! Santorini, or Thira, is the top destination in Greece and among the most romantic destinations in the Greek islands and also in the world. Santorini may well have conquered a corner of your imagination before you’ve even set eyes on it. With multicolored cliffs soaring over 300 m from a sea-drowned caldera, it rests in the middle of the indigo Aegean, looking like a giant slab of layered cake. The island spoons the vast crater left by one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history. Smaller islands curl around the fragmented western edge of the caldera, but it is the main island of Thira that will take your breath away with its snow-drift of white Cycladic houses lining the cliff tops and, in places, spilling like icy cornices down the terraced rock. When the sun sets, the reflection on the buildings and the glow of the orange and red in the cliffs can be truly spectacular.
