Yes, yes, you're hearing the call of cocktails on Mykonos Island. But let's get acquainted with Athens for a day before we set sail. This city is a time capsule of life on earth.

See, just like we told you. Our time in Athens was amazing and well worth delaying our island time for. But delay it further? We shall not...

Let's do this! 3 nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love.

DAY 5 - Mykonos

DAY 6 - Mykonos to Santorini 

This morning, let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only have the time and money to visit just one Greek Island. Those poor unfortunate souls...

Saddle up! We're taking to the seas again, this time in search of the island of Santorini. It's finally your turn to be the one lulling about the white-washed blue dome churches looking like a sultry summer babe. Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Ah, life.

Stay: Okeanis Hotel (or similar)

Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini will not explore itself. Take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, and roam the streets of Fira. Just remember to plan your day around the excursion to the iconic sunset of Oia - this is not an optional you're going to want to miss.

Free TimeAdd-ons:

  • Visit Oia and soak up one of the world's most famous sunsets (EUR 30.00)

DAY 9: Santorini to Ios

Say your so longs to Santorini this morning. We have one last Greek Island to hop to, and we promise she's magnificent.

A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery. But thankfully, there will be no change in the hours spent ocean side and good times had.

Stay:Far Out (or similar)


DAY 10 - Ios

Another day, another chance to soak up the Greek sun and frolic in the sand without a care in the world. Get some adrenalin in with some watersports, or if you haven't done so already, go explore the pretty town and down a hearty meal at a local cafe. You're going to need the fuel if you want to hang out in the party scene of Hora until the break of dawn.  

Free Time Add-ons:

  • Speedboat safari (EUR 38.00)

Stay: Far Out (or similar)



DAY 12 - Ios to Athens 

While choking back the tears and waving miserably at the dreamy islands of Greece, try to think positive thoughts: we have a boat ride to enjoy this morning, as well as one more night together in the city of Athens. 

One last dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together as the Greece loving squad that we are. 

Stay: Poseidon Hotel (or similar)
