Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 5 p.m. at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you can take your seat in the cabins and board the galley before setting sail.
After breakfast, we leave from Volos for a peaceful sailing that will take us to the open sea from the Gulf of Pagasitikos. We head east in the direction of Skiathos, little but cosmopolitan island with beautiful golden sand beaches, among which we recommend the enchanting Koukounaries.
From Skiathos we proceed to the east towards the refined Skopelos, the most luxuriant island in the Sporades archipelago. It will welcome you with its intact nature and its coasts covered by thick coniferous forests, where you will find enchanted bays with white little pebble beaches and a crystal clear sea. At sunset, you can have a nice walk on the white sand beach in the suggestive Limnonari bay and have dinner on board.
We leave for a peaceful sailing along the west coast of Skopelos. Time for diving and enjoying the sun in the beautiful Panormos bay. Here you can go ashore to visit the little village, go shopping for the trip and eat in one of the nice taverns on the seaside. We will spend the night in the near and peaceful bay of Kastani Beach.
Through a short navigation from Skopelos, you will reach Alonissos, the best destination for those who seek relax and authentic contact with nature. The island is located at the centre of a marine park, and its waters are among the purests in the whole Aegean Sea. The old town of Alonissos will offer you an evocative landscape with its pure white houses, ancient stairways and wonderful Byzantine churches.
After breakfast we set sail from Alonissos to go back west towards the island of Skopelos. We dedicate the day to a small tour around Skopelos Old Town, with a visit to the interesting folkloristic museum and the ancient streets of the town where we can get lost until dinnertime. We should then look for a good tavern where to taste the excellent local wine and listen to some live music.
From Skopelos we head north and follow the eastern coast of the island. Stopover for a swim and a snack in the splendid and secluded bay of Perivolou, reachable only on foot or by boat. Short afternoon sailing until we arrive on Skiathos and return to the Marina at 18:00 with overnight stay in the port included.

The Sporades archipelago is immersed in the Aegian Sea, unusual but paradisiacal destination for the sailing lovers. The most contrasting landscapes are two, hills and blue sail. For the night-life lovers the suggested island is Skiathos: white sand beaches and crowded night clubs. Skopelos is the most romantic islet where you lose yourself between colorful flowers and white little houses, walking through the ruins of Atena temple. For flora and fauna lovers, the essential spot is the Natural Reservation of Alonissos, while for the tranquillity lovers the best will be the furthest island of Skyros, where you could find the typical greek features and a desert relaxing paradise.
