Day 1

place Arrival in Athens

Arrival at the thousand-year-old capital known all over the world and transfer to Athens. Badly named because of the pollution, since the Olympic Games of 2004, the city has been developed, the historic center with its pedestrian streets has regained its tranquility and its charm all the more while walking near the ruins and the temples. The night in Athens is full of light and beauty, contrast between modernity and history in harmony, the regions of Plaka, Aghia Eirini and Psiri await you.

Half-day dedicated to a kayak tour to the coves and semi-private beaches. Your local guide will take you through beautiful places with crystal clear waters, near the Parian coast. We stop for our first fruit snack and swim break, continue exploring sea caves, small coves and interesting rock formations to our final destination. There we enjoy a well-deserved lunch break that includes fresh local produce. During both stops, you'll have plenty of time to swim, snorkel, sunbathe, and explore the surroundings where there are usually small deserted Cycladic chapels or cliffs. Once the lunch stop is over, we return to end an adventurous day spent in the open air (a total of 8 to 12 km round trip) (itinerary may change depending on the weather) Free afternoon to discover Paros, its small port of Pisso Livadi, Parikia its main lively port.

Day 4

place Small catamaran cruise

Our sailing trip from Paros departs from Piso Livadi daily and takes you sailing for a full day on an exclusive itinerary around the small Cycladic island complex, weather permitting. Leaving Paros, we head to Irakleia Island, where a stop at a secluded cove will allow you to snorkel around a wrecked WWII plane. Schoinousa or Koufonissia are planned for our next stop, where after a swim in the turquoise waters, you will be served a lunch prepared by our crew. Later in the afternoon a short swimming stop off Naxos (southern coasts), where our last stop is. As an alternative route, when the winds make the crossing to Naxos difficult, we head west to the sheltered coasts of Antiparos and Despotiko, which are hidden gems around the Cyclades waiting to be explored. Our return is scheduled between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., because sometimes the weather dictates the speed and course. End of free day, a detour in the small port of Naoussa will remain in your memory, with its small alleys of alley, its bougainvilleas, and its taverns on the beaches, one of the prettiest ports of Paros.

Day 6

place Discovery nature hike, wild herbs and local wines

Starting from the emblematic beach of Santa Maria, we cycle on the gravel roads of the north and east coast, passing by cliffs and seaside beaches (the possibilities for swimming are numerous!) And through small villages, until Prodromos, where we stop for a tasty lunch in the garden with local dishes. The traditional village is the starting point of the so-called ``Byzantine route'' to Lefkes, the best-known hiking route of Paros, which is said to have been built in Byzantine (medieval) times as part of a central road crossing the whole island, connecting Parikia to the ancient capital Lefkes and PisoLivadi. This is a route of around an hour and a half in the unspoiled Parian countryside with a few gentle climbs, pleasant and accessible to all. The day ends with a visit to the traditional mountain village of Lefkes, with its rich Cycladic character, with some neoclassical brushstrokes: shaded vaulted passages and a chaotic play of the white cubes of the houses.

Guide: Included for the day

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
