Activities & Adventures
1. Iconic Scenary
The islands of Greece are surrounded by vivid blue waters that are perfect for relaxing and soaking up the Greek sun. The buildings and houses are well known for their distinctive style and colors. Explore the wonderful history of these islands through their famous blue and white buildings and stone pathways. A visit to Knossos Castle will leave you amazed at the work of the ancient Greek people.
2. Crete’s Pink Beaches
Only a handful of pink sand beaches exist in the world, one of the most notable ones is located in Crete. Tiny red oyster shells mix with the beautiful white sand to give it the light pink hue. Crete not only has one, but two of these rare pink sand beaches. These beaches are in stark contrast to the other islands which boast black sand due to the volcanic nature of the islands. Inside of this trip you’ll see black, white, red, and pink sand beaches. Nowhere else in the world will you find this diverse collection of beaches.
3. Immersive Culture
Greece exudes pride in their history, food, people, and everything else that makes their culture distinctive. Fresh seafood, olives, and Baklava are just some of the popular dishes you will taste as you make your way through the islands. A visit to the Acropolis or the Greek Pompeii site will have you brushing up on your history. Their vibrant nightlife and exceptional hospitality will make you feel welcome at any time of the day. In Greece everyone is family.
Arrive in Athens to start your Greek adventure. Explore breathtaking botanic gardens and ancient architecture. Start your days with Greek yogurt topped with local honey and finish them with a coffee and a slice of Baklava in the cafes that line the streets of Athens.
