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 port of Oreoi. 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 Sporades Islands.
You will leave your moorings early in the morning to reach Skopelos, but first you will stop on the islet of Pontikonissi. Fins, mask and snorkel at the ready, ready to dive into beautiful turquoise waters to discover its depths, while the crew prepares a delicious lunch for you on board. In the early afternoon you will sail to Agnontas on the island of Skopelos, where you will have dinner and spend the night.
Spend the next two days sailing between Skopelos and Alonissos. The former boasts picturesque sand and pebble beaches lapped by crystal-clear waters reflected in the green pine trees that form the backdrop. You will pass from sheltered coves to quaint towns, to the famous little church of St. Ioannis - Kastri from the film 'Mamma Mia'. The second, due to its more remote location, is an unspoilt paradise where time seems to stand still. You will discover wild beaches and small harbours with villages where life flows slowly. In the Alonissos nature reserve, you might even come across some dolphins or monk seals! The itinerary and stops will depend on the weather and wind conditions. There are protected harbours and bays in which to spend the night.
After a good breakfast on board and a refreshing dip, a short sail will take you to the island of Skiathos, the most famous of the Sporades archipelago. Spend the day discovering the west coast of the island, in particular its capital, which is perfect for a stroll through the characteristic alleys, small shops and typical restaurants where you can enjoy some excellent traditional dishes. In the late afternoon, after a day of sea and relaxation, spend the night in a sheltered bay under the stars.
This morning you hoist the sails to the beautiful beach of Koukounaries on the west coast of Skiathos. One kilometre of golden sand bathed by emerald waters like the pine forest behind you. In the early afternoon you will stop along the coast for a few dips and a relaxing swim in some quiet beaches before reaching the small harbour of Trikeri in the evening.
Last day of sailing to Oreous. During the cruise you will pass pretty harbours and small beaches, where you can spend a few hours relaxing in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. In the late afternoon you will return to the port of disembarkation, where you will spend the last night on board.
