Best for experienced sailors and those who like green islands with sandy beaches.

You will get under way in Skiathos, a paradise of pine and olive groves with a lagoon and long golden beaches. Sail over to the northern end of Alonissos and lounge on some of the best beaches in the Aegean. At night, check out Steni Vala where the party is always in full swing. Continue north to Pelagos. This tiny island is home to a wildlife sanctuary that serves as a habitat for seals. There are also plenty of caves to explore as well as a famous monastery. A long, open sail to the southeast takes you to Skiros, an island crowned by an ancient acropolis and filled with original Greek architecture. This is also where you’ll find the only ponies in Greece. Another nice open sail to the west will take you to Skopelos, a small island with 360 churches and plenty of amazing beaches. On your way back to Skiathos, sail into the protected waters of the Orei Channel. It is an unforgettable voyage marked by charming villages, ancient temples, Byzantine churches and beautiful beaches.
