6 Highlights of Greece

Whether you want to relax in the sunshine, hike into the hills or discover archaeological treasures, Greece and its islands offers something for everyone. Here are six of the best travel highlights in Greece.


Cyclades Islands

The Greek Cyclades islands offer a peaceful hideaway from fast-paced modern life. Set off on foot on our Greek Wanderer Hiking Trip to follow the coastal trails of Syros with their far-reaching views over turquoise blue seas, and delve into the charming streets of Naxos to discover rustic alleyways adorned with hole-in-the-wall bars and eateries. Cobalt-blue domes and white-washed churches dominate the coastline of Santorini and ancient Byzantine trails sprawl across the island of Paros. 


Byzantine monasteries stand on the summits of rocky pinnacles soaring into the heavens, and forested canyons twist and turn through the lowlands. Grab an e-bike to scale the slopes of a nearby peak or grab a harness for a morning of climbing and rock scrambling in this wild adventure playground. 

Greek Island Cruise

Set sail on a voyage of discovery around the secluded coves and bustling harbours of Greece’s second-largest island, Evia, on our Greek Island Cruise. Your friendly crew will show you the very best of the island and serve up delicious Greek mezze aboard our traditional wooden caique boat. The unspoiled beaches are quieter than those on neighbouring islands, so find a secluded cove, drop anchor and enjoy a refreshing swim in the tranquil, crystal-clear waters. Families can also join in with the fun on our Family Greek Coast Cruise


Crete, Greece’s largest island, boasts a golden coastline of pristine beaches and wild mountainous landscapes - a walker’s paradise. Join our Walking Holiday in Crete to hike through the towering limestone peaks of the White Mountains and the steep cliffs of Europe’s longest gorge - Samaria. Coastal paths on the lesser-visited south side of the island lead you to the peaceful fishing village of Loutro where you can enjoy delicious fresh seafood in a traditional waterfront taverna and jump into the translucent sea for a relaxing swim. 


Imagine forested hillsides, colourful wildflower meadows and golden shorelines lapped by crystal clear turquoise water - this is the picture-postcard scenery of one of Greece’s greenest islands, Corfu. Climb to the lofty village of Agii Deka on our Corfu Trail South Tour, traverse the wild and barren landscape of Karst Plateau on the Corfu Trail North, or combine the two on our two-week Corfu Trail Explorer Trip that covers the entire 200km-long Corfu Trail. Feel the tension drain away as you wander through sleepy hamlets and enjoy freshly-prepared mezze by the sea. 

Peloponnese Region

Steeped in myth and legend, Greece’s Peloponnese region is home to an array of historical sites and monuments. Join our Peloponnese Explorer Trip to explore the ancient streets of Athens, including the Acropolis citadel, and take a guided tour around Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Away from the cities, the wild landscapes of the Mani Peninsula feature rugged mountains, pristine bays of golden sand and azure-blue water and a scattering of coastal villages inhabited by the native Maniot community.
