To know


A bike and boat vacation spanning 5,000 years of Greek history. Get ready for a leap in time: Venetians, Greeks, Romans, and more have left their traces in the Peloponnese. Discover medieval archaeological sites and be surprised by the uniqueness of the islands of the Saronic Gulf. Accompanied by orange groves, plantations, and the scent of aromatic herbs make a stop on the island of Hydra, where the only traffic you encounter is made up of...donkeys!


  • The sanctuary of the goddess Aphaia, on the island of Aegina
  • The volcanic peninsula of Methana
  • The scents of the islands among pomegranates, orange groves, pistachios and spices

What awaits you

A week-long boat ride with daily bike rides. The stages on the pedals take place in hilly or mountainous terrain and involve reaching an altitude between 200/500 m above sea level. Roads are generally paved and low traffic, except in the high season. Each day you can decide whether to ride independently, using the maps provided, follow one of the guides, or stay on board and relax.


Overnight accommodations are provided aboard a three-masted motor yacht-a veritable floating hotel ready to follow you during the biking stages and welcome you aboard in the evening. The atmosphere is comfortable and designed down to the smallest detail to provide you with an unforgettable stay. The cuisine on board is varied, rich in Greek gastronomic specialties.

This holiday was a dream come true for me. I could not have asked for a better crew to guide me – Kostas and Catherina were friendly, capable, knowledgable, thorough, and made all the incredibly hard work they did on our behalf seem easy. They handled unexpected challenges and “emergency” situations with grace and aplomb, making it seem as though these were commonplace events and nothing to stress over. Achilleas, Stavros and Photis were friendly, effective, and pleasant all the time. I feel like I left friends behind when I disembarked.
