SAIL GREECE

Poros - Hydra - Dokos -  Spetses

Eat, sleep and live on a yacht for eight days!

Why you'll love this trip

The Aegean is one of the best places in the world to explore by boat, with small villages, deserted beaches, incredible food and crystal-clear, unbelievably blue water.

 

You will spend your days hopping by sailing the rocky, partly volcanic Argo-Saronic Islands, best known for their beaches and ancient ruins, one of the most popular day-trip and weekend destinations. You will  travel across the three southerly islands – green Poros, tiny, car-free Hydra and upmarket Spetses.

With a maximum of ten people on a boat, you'll be able to cram into the traditional tavernas lining the ports for an authentic culinary experience. 

Is this adventure right for you?

As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others.

 

Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated.

Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavorable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.

   Sail stress-free - all yachts come with a TYW trained skipper.

Poros

The first thing that will stand out to you as you approach Poros port is the trademark of the island, the Poros Clock Tower. Built on a hillside, Poros Town is one of the most picturesque capitals of the Aegean sea islands. Poros town is the center of the island’s activity, as the array of traditional taverns and Poros restaurants located along its seafront promenade come alive when the sun goes down.

Hydra

The charming atmosphere of the island has seduced many international jet setters and has been a retreat for famous personalities! Elegant stone mansions, narrow alleys, donkeys walking around, churches, little shops, and a picturesque waterfront set the scene of an island fairytale! Given that there are no cars in Hydra and people usually get around by foot, the island’s roads are not clogged with traffic and fumes. 

 

One of the best things to do in Hydra is to visit its museums. The Byzantine Museum, the Historical Archive Museum, the Post-Byzantine Art and History Museum and the National Historical Museum are some of the best museums to visit!
