Guest of Honor
Greece is known for its magical mountainous landscapes, natural splendors, endless coasts and 9,000 islands and islets, which are famous all around the world as their splendid beauty, fascinating heritage and unique history allure the visitors from all around the world.
I want to loosen up
The island of Alonissos is surrounded by the national marine park, the only one in Greece. Daily cruises are being organized every day in order for the visitors to meet the dolphins, the turtles, the hawks and the famous Mediterranean monk seals, which represent ¼ of the global population and were accommodated in the marine park. Moreover, the island is ideal for scuba diving: explore a palette of varied colors but also wrecks and archaeological findings which are engulfed by water. Furthermore, do not hesitate to go fishing, boating, kayaking… even if you are a beginner!
The island of Lefkada, accessible by car via a floating bridge which connects the island with the mainland, is an absolute paradise for thrill seekers: surfing, windsurfing, water skiing, paragliding, wakeboarding and much more. Do not miss the amazing beaches of Kathisma, Egremnoi and Porto Katsiki! Let the crystalline turquoise waters seduce you and do not forget to take a day cruise to Meganisi!
I would like to find new paths
For scuba diving lovers, the island of Leros is the destination to visit this year! Explore the caves of Leros Bay, the plane wrecks and the shipwrecks of the Second World War. A well-kept secret, a confidential island, where pine trees meet turquoise waters.
On the splendid (and still little-known!) island of Kalymnos, the ancestral tradition of sponge fishermen is still present. After having had an amazing day at the beach of the Dodecanese archipelago, do not miss this must have accessory used in the best spas!
I want to time travel
On the island Chios, which inspired Eugène Delacroix ΄s famous painting, one can discover the great heritage of Greek ship owners, who contributed to the wealth of the island. The Maritime tradition of Chios reflected in the unique mansions of Kampos, built in the 19th century and declared as cultural heritage, date back to Antiquity.
Chios is the ideal destination for diving, boating, canoeing / kayaking, yachting and sailing, beaches and coves, and splendid caves. Do not forget to taste mastiha a unique product: a resin obtained from the mastic tree. which is also known as tears of Chios. Mastiha has been traditionally produced on the island Chios for centuries.
I want to taste tradition
Crete offers a traditional way of life with one of the healthiest diets on the planet. Since ancient times, the Greeks enjoyed the health benefits of Mediterranean food and natural beauty. The Cretan Diet is ideal for health as the ingredients used in it are full of antioxidants, which keep free radicals away. Abundance of olive oil, green vegetables and tomatoes are some of them. Furthermore, the consumption of fish, which are rich in omega 3, helps boosting skin elasticity, hydration and luminosity. Raki, honey, anthotiro and myzithra cheeses, are also a must! But most of all, Crete offers one of the mildest climates in Europe, ideal for yachting and sailing.
