Day 1: Check-in
Landing in Athens, you can take advantage of the transfer service (included in the price) departing from the capital's international airport at 16:30 and heading to the embarkation marina. The departure base for this cruise will be the Marina of Messolongi or the Marina of Astakos. After the quick check-in procedures, stowing your luggage in your cabins and attending the crew briefing, you will enjoy your first dinner on board the wonderful gulet that will host you during your week of discovery of the beautiful Ionian Islands.
Set anchor early in the morning and sail in the direction of Oxia, the first small island you will encounter on your route. You will be able to stop just in front of the island for a first swim in the blue waters of Greece. In the afternoon you will resume sailing to the characteristic islet of Kastos, where you will stop for a few dips and some relaxation on board. The final destination of this first day of navigation will be the port of Mytikas, where the gulet will moor for the night.
We leave the small port of Mytika and set sail in the direction of Kalamos, the capital of the island of the same name. Little known and frequented by tourists, you will find yourself immersed in the genuine atmosphere of a quiet and traditional Greece. You can enjoy crystal-clear sea and bright sunshine, relaxing on land and on board, and at the end of the day spend the night in one of its magnificent bays under the stars.
After a refreshing dip and a hearty breakfast, we head to the beautiful island of Meganisi. The beaches of this elongated island are uniquely beautiful, bathed by crystal-clear waters in which the lush vegetation is reflected, offering incredible plays of colour. You will stop for lunch in one of its small bays and coves, where you will spend a few hours relaxing between dips, snorkelling and some swimming, or simply on the beach. In the afternoon, we sail north to the small port of Vathy, a picturesque village that serves as the island's capital. Here you will find excellent small restaurants and taverns where you can sample traditional dishes and enjoy a pleasant evening ashore.
With a short sail, we will reach the island of Kefalonia today. We will spend the day discovering the northern part of this island with its breathtaking views, in particular we will stop at the most beautiful beaches of Fiskardo: Kimilia and Emplisi. The waters are a thousand shades of blue, turquoise and emerald green. In the late afternoon we head to the small harbour of Fiskardo, from where you can admire the two iconic lighthouses: one Venetian-style and one more modern. You can go ashore for a typical dinner in one of the small restaurants and spend a lively evening in the narrow streets of the centre.
We cast off our moorings and take a short sail to nearby Ithaca, the famous homeland of Ulysses. In reality, this island is much more than that: beaches bathed by crystal-clear waters and surrounded by the green of the olive and cypress trees that cover the hills overlooking the sea... We sail south along the entire island until we reach Vathy, the main town. Here you will go ashore for a stroll among elegant neoclassical buildings, small restaurants and typical taverns, before spending the night on board in a beautiful sheltered bay.
Last day of sailing to return to the disembarkation marina. Along the way you will make a couple of stops for lunch and the last dips of the holiday at one of the small islands in the vicinity of the Messolongi National Park. In the late afternoon we will moor in the harbour and spend the last evening on board.
Day 8: Check-out
After the last breakfast on board, disembarkation is scheduled in the morning in order to reach Athens airport. The transfer service is included in the price.
