Discover the charms of Amorgos and Naxos – two dreamy Cycladic Islands – on this ten-day Grecian adventure. Your first stop is Athens, the Greek capital, where you can tour the city on an electric bike and learn about the history of its most impressive monuments. You’ll then head to Amorgos, a more remote and secluded island, boasting peaceful villages and plenty of hiking routes through the stunning landscapes. The final stop on your Cycladic tour is Naxos, one of the most quintessential Greek islands of the Cyclades. Here you can discover the best of the island’s (and Greece’s) culinary offerings, with a private gourmet tour with lots of tastings. Our local Concierge will be on hand throughout your trip to offer recommendations and suggestions for elevating your trip.

Route

Everything is 100% tailored to you
DAY 1

FLIGHT TO ATHENS

Begin your dreamy Cycladic island-hopping holiday by flying four hours from London to Athens, where you’ll be met upon arrival and privately transferred to your hotel in the city. Spend the rest of your travel day settling in and venturing out to explore the Greek capital. Our local Concierge can recommend some wonderful restaurants for dinner to kick off the foodie side of your holiday.

DAY 2

EXPLORE ATHENS

Today you’ll have the chance to get to know Athens a little better on a private electric bike tour of the city. Strap on your helmet and cycle through the streets of this ancient metropolis, enjoying spectacular views, marvelling at the most impressive contemporary monuments and learning about its history. The eight-mile guided tour takes you across Syntagma Square, Panepistimiou Street, Athens Street (Town Hall Square and Varvakio market), Aiolou Street, Ermou Street and the Cathedral.

DAY 3

ATHENS TO AMORGOS

It’s time to depart Athens and set off in the direction of your next Greek island. You’ll be privately transferred to the port of Piraeus, where you’ll catch the ferry to Amorgos. The boat ride can take up to seven hours, but we promise that the island’s treasures are well-worth making the journey for. Upon arrival, collect your rental car and drive to your Cycladic hotel, where you'll stay for the next four nights. Once again, our local Concierge can suggest the best supper spots for unwinding after your long travel day. Refuel with souvlaki, halloumi and moussaka, before getting a good night’s sleep in your luxurious hotel room.

DAYS 4 to 6

CHARMING AMORGOS

Thanks to its remoteness, Amorgos is free from tourist crowds and remains relatively unspoiled. Remarkable archaeological ruins and peaceful villages punctuate the interior, while hiking routes snake along the stunning coastline and through ancient olive fields. Tasting rakomelo (a hot honey raki) is a must during your stay, and so is climbing the 300 steps that lead to Panagia Hozoviotissa, a monastery carved out of rock. Rest assured, it’s well worth the effort. We’ll also arrange a private guided hike to the Chora gardens in Katapola. Meander through the town of Chora – the island’s capital – before walking along the Fonias stream and seeing the breath-taking landscapes of Katapola Valley. Once you reach the gardens, you’ll be able to taste some local organic farm produce.

DAY 7

AMORGOS TO NAXOS

The next stop on your Cycladic adventure is Naxos. The crossing from Amorgos to Naxos takes around an hour and a half, and upon arrival you’ll collect your new hire care and drive to your hotel. As the largest of the Cycladic Islands, Naxos is blessed with sunlit villages and dazzling beaches, lapped by the azure Aegean Sea. Legend has it that Dionysus taught the art of winemaking here and Theseus confronted the Minotaur. Today, olive trees are cultivated in abundance and marble quarries provide a unique raw material for sculptors and craftsmen.

DAYS 8 to 10

RELAX ON NAXOS

Spend the rest of your time on Naxos relaxing on the sun-soaked beaches and exploring the heavenly island. Discovering the culinary treats of the island is another must, and we can organise a private gourmet tour with a local guide. Get lost in the maze of cobbled streets that make up Naxos and learn about the secrets of Greece's fertile land and beautiful produce. Sample Kitron, a liqueur made from the fruit and leaves of the citron tree, try five Naxian cheeses (including the famous Graviera) and taste some local wines. The tour continues with lemon, bergamot and sage flavoured sweets and ends with a visit to the island's Venetian citadel.

DAY 11

HOME TIME

Sadly your Grecian adventure comes to an end today and you’ll catch the ferry back to Athens, before being privately transferred to the airport for your direct, four-hour flight home.

A la carte

THE ACROPOLIS AND THE NEW MUSEUM - ATHENS

During the latter half of the fifth century BC, Athens gained ascendancy over the other cities of the ancient world. It was a very rich period of history when art, politics and philosophical thought flourished. It was at this time that a group of artists decided to bring the designs drawn up by Pericles - an Athenian statesman - to life. The rocky hill of Athens was transformed and the key monuments of the Acropolis were built. The New Museum is home to more than 350 archaeological relics and sculptures. It exhibits ceramics, bas-reliefs and antique sculptures from places of worship. A private guide will guide take you on an immersive journey, letting you in on the secrets and stories.

Option



INTRODUCTION TO DIVING - AMORGOS

The crystal-clear waters bordering Amorgos are ideal for an introductory diving session. The seabed stuns in all its colours and shapes - it's no wonder it provides the setting for many films. After following the diving instructor's advice on how to use the diving equipment and learning the basic safety rules, exploration of the underwater world can begin.

Optional



SAILING DAY - NAXOS

The coasts of Naxos are a sailor's paradise. Sailing around the island is sure to give you a fresh perspective. You will also spontaneously drop anchor at some unspoiled coves. The plan is to embark on a sail boat towards the cave at Rina Bay, which you can only get to by swimming. Donning a mask and snorkel, you will weave between the stalactites lining the rocky dome. The next port of call is Kalados Bay and the secluded beaches of Schinoussa. You'll be entranced by the waves and the skipper's suggestions.
