Welcome to Serifos

In Greek mythology, Serifos is where Perseus grew up, bringing back the Medusa's head to save his mother from the unwanted romantic attentions of Polydectes, and where the Cyclopes were said to live. There’s some fine walking on Serifos, and plenty to explore below the waves too.

Enjoy a complimentary single timed 30 minutes' long transfer from Athens international airport to Lavrio port where the sailing yacht is based. Before sailing, take part in a short safety briefing by your skipper. Then, you’ll be ready for your 2 hours scenic sailing  to the island of Kea. Fertile and green, Kea is hikers’ paradise, abundant with routes to beautiful, remote beaches.  After a hearty breakfast, head off sailing to Poles bay in Kea, overlooking ancient Karthea. Your guide will take you to follow in the footsteps of travelers who have been visiting Kea since the 17th century exploring Karthea, 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 across to the picturesque port of Loutra on Kythnos, known for its natural warm springs, which you will have the chance to experience!Take a guided walk around the striking, arid countryside around Loutra in Kythnos, where you will discover hidden centuries-old castles and whitewashed churches while coming across farmers and shepherds who live off this dramatic landscape.After a refreshing dip and a light lunch, the voyage continues to Serifos island, an integral part of Greek mythology, since its name is associated with two of the most famous mythical heroes: Ulysses and Perseus. If you’re up for it, you can try your balance at paddle boarding in of Serifos’ secluded beaches.In the morning explore Serifos Chora’s narrow whitewashed alleys, colored with the lush green, pink and purple of overflowing bougainvillea. A steep walk up to the peak will bring you to Ag. Konstantinos chapel. Enjoy amazing views of the Aegean Sea islands of Kythnos, Kimolos, Milos, and Sifnos.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.On your last day, take an early morning spectacular loop hike which leads you to a hilltop from where you can admire this astonishing natural phenomenon, which from up high looks much like a column standing-out from a cobalt blue background. Today, we will swim or go stand up paddle boarding, before  we set sail in the early afternoon, back to Lavrio port, where we will arrive by 3.30pm.  A single timed transfer is scheduled to the Athens International Airport.
