Greek Islands Bike & Boat
In the South Aegean off mainland Greece is a group of more than 30 islands known as the Cyclades. Whitewashed houses with blue shutters, a labyrinth of narrow streets flowing through cobblestoned villages, sandy beaches and a relaxed island lifestyle attract visitors from all over the globe. Taking in these obvious attractions, this cruising and cycling adventure delves further into the interior and coastlines, exploring little known coves and impressive geological formations, ancient sites and untouched villages. Cruising from island to island, we'll spend plenty of time ashore exploring fishing villages and historic sites by bike or just relaxing on the secluded beaches far away from the busy resorts and enjoying authentic Greek hospitality.

One of the best weeks of any holiday we have had. Just the right mix of cycling, "sailing", swimming, eating & entertainment.
Perfect way to experience Greek Islands. It will depend a lot on the passengers on any particular trip (particularly as it is a relatively small boat) but we could not have wished for a better group of fellow travellers or guides. We all bonded immediately & shared some great experiences.
