Traditional Mykonian Farm Experience from Mykonos

Your adventure begins when you are picked up at your hotel by bus and transferred to a traditional farm. You will drive across the center of the island that unites the Hora (main city) of Mykonos with the village of Ano Mera, a distance of 4.3 miles (7 kilometers). Once you arrive at the village you will pass through the picturesque square, and pass by the monastery of Panagia Tourliani. Continue walking .25-miles (400-meters) to the Mykonian Farm where you will be greeted by the farm’s superintendent who will guide you through the territory, recounting the history of the places while showing you how the organic and the animal farming operates. Later, while sitting and relaxing on a traditional stone couch sipping raki you will learn the history of the island’s farming, its livestock and its crops. During the storytelling of traditional Mykonian farming habits, you will enjoy a farmer’s snack consisting of bread, tomatoes, kopanisti, cucumbers and poor man’s black olives, accompanied by the traditional raki. Depending on the season, you can cut and savor products from the vegetable garden. If you wish to get involved with farming tasks, the superintendent will provide you with the right tools and instruct you as you go along. Your tour concludes when you are taken back to your hotel, or to the “Mykonian Spiti” for a traditional dinner, if you have chosen the dinner option on your initial reservation.

8-Day Sail Greece: Mykonos to Santorini

Day1: Mykonos / Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 4 pm. The first port of call is the local supermarket to buy supplies for your trip as a group. Before and after the meeting, perhaps head out to enjoy Mykonos and unwind on one of the island’s sandy beaches. Navigate the town's narrow streets, visit the Church of Panagia Paraportiani or browse chic galleries, restaurants and boutiques. In the evening, perhaps wander down to Little Venice to enjoy a cocktail by the water at sunset. You'll spend tonight aboard the boat. Your skipper will collect the trip kitty of EUR100 at the pre-departure meeting today. DAY2-7: Sailing the Greek Islands Naxos / This morning we head for the Bay of Gaidharos for breakfast and a swim, before making our way across the glistening water to Naxos. Discover the beautiful beaches, fragrant olive groves and charming villages of Hora, the capital of Naxos. As the largest Cycladic island, Naxos also has one of the most colourful mythological histories.  Small Cyclades / It's time to feel the wind in our hair once again as we sail along the coast of Naxos. After around 5 hours we drop anchor in the Small Cyclades. While all the islands harboured communities in ancient times, the middle ages saw this reduced to just pirates and goats.  Amorgos / Next is a brief sail (approximately 3 hours) to the rugged, mountainous island of Amorgos – known to the world as the stunning location of Luc Besson's film, 'The Big Blue'. Katapola, the island's main port, boasts classic Cycladic architecture with windmills and an old Venetian castle. The waterfront is an excellent place to relax in restaurants, cafes and bars.  Ios / Continue to Ios, an island inhabited since early Cycladic times, proudly claiming to be the burial place of epic Greek poet Homer. Ios has managed to retain some allure from the abundance of beaches and preservation of its classic cube houses packed around the laneways of Hora. A short walk from the harbour, Hora's shops, restaurants, nightclubs, bars and cafes all come alive in the evenings.  Santorini / Formed by a huge volcanic explosion, Santorini is instantly recognisable with its blue and white buildings, fascinating ruins and stunning natural beauty. After making our entrance by sailing through the remarkable caldera, all the hubbub of this beautiful island is there for the taking. The exuberant capital of Fira, perched on the edge of the caldera, has an exciting range of restaurants, shops and bars. DAY8: Santorini / Your adventure comes to an end today. You can depart the boat at 8 am or earlier. We recommend booking an extra night's accommodation to see all the sights of Santorini.

Patmos from Samos

Let yourself be impressed by the ascetic, almost unapproachable face of the island, which seems to consist only of rock, jagged lava rock and deeply cut bays. Patmos still retains his Byzantine past as a former refuge for Christian monks.History is particularly evident in the grotto that has become the cult, in which the Evangelist John had his vision of the world court. In the Apocalypse, one of the greatest texts of world literature, John wrote down his vision.Visit the port of Skala and be impressed by the mighty St. John's Monastery, from the 11th century. The monastery museum shows valuable icons, golden jewelery, old measuring vestments, as well as hand-written bibles and writings. Both cultural lovers and nature lovers will be delighted by the island!Either way, the whole island of Patmos is picturesque with its unique style of houses, wonderful beaches and the attractive traditional village of Hora.
