Your guide will take you to follow in the footsteps of travelers who have been visiting Kea since the 17th century. You will explore Karthea, including the most important of the ancient Tetrapolis of Kea in the antiquity. After a dip at one of Kea’s most beautiful beaches, "Aeolus" (God of wind), will blow into the sails of your yacht as you set off for a relaxing afternoon sailing to the picturesque port of Loutra on Kythnos. This port is known for its natural warm springs, which you will of course have the chance to experience.

After a refreshing dip and a light lunch, the voyage continues to Serifos island, an integral part of Greek mythology. Its name is associated with two of the most famous mythical heroes: Ulysses and Perseus, and you can mull over this yarn and other local legends whilst sipping a traditional Greek coffee and enjoying a local sweet at the sparkling port of Livadi. If you’re up for it, you can try your balance at paddleboarding in one of Serifos’ secluded beaches.

The next stage of the trip takes you back to Kythnos, but this time on the western side to the gold-sanded beaches of Apokrousi and Kolona, which are basically the edges of a narrow bar connecting the main island of Kythnos to the islet of Agios Loukas. Day 5: Kythnos - Lavrio In the morning, take a spectacular loop-hike which leads you to a hilltop from where you can admire this astonishing natural phenomenon.

100% recommend! Amazing experience. Few things to note: 1. We went on October 13th - weather was still warm enough to sunbathe and swim and tan. It cools off at night however plus wind from the boat means you want to bring some pants/long sleeve just in case. 2. 100% do the bike tour on Agistri. Our guide (Igor) took us to a secluded and beautiful swimming nook that really made the trip. Incredible views. Water was so warm. 3. Food was excellent. Staff was great too! 4. Super fun and easy way to socialize and meet some people. Had a blast. Thanks again!

The experience was fantastic. The boat is a beautiful wood sailboat. I drove myself to the pier and they gave me clear instructions. The crew is friendly, attentive, organized and very helpful. The food was delicious. I could not be happier with the accommodations, service, or value. FIVE STARS!

What a fun day out! Perfect length of time both on the boat as well as the islands. I really enjoyed the bike tour to a quiet beach, and jumping off the boat to swim was such a unique experience. Food was fantastic and guides were excellent. Highly recommend!

AMAZING home cooked food, service and such a relaxing day! I Highly recommend this excursion. I was so sad to see it come to an end.

The crew was amazing. I recommend the option for renting electric bikes. The views where amazing.
