DAY 1: Lavrion - Milos (approximately 65 nautical miles)
Your crew awaits you in the Lavrion Marina (Olympic Marine - Pier 2) from 2pm. A refreshment will be offered when you meet all the other passengers. Your skipper leaves the moorings around 3pm and after a few miles, you will get the chance to dive into the Aegean Sea, in front of Cap Sounion. Navigate through the night to reach the beautiful and remote island of Milos. Looking starboard, you can see the sun setting and the moon reflecting on the sea, lighting up the surrounding islands (weather permitting). Dinner is on board.

DAY 2: Milos (Kleftiko) - Milos (Adamas) (approximately 14 nautical miles)
In the morning, you wake up in front of Kleftiko, a lovely small bay located southwest of Milos. Take advantage of the breathtaking landscape while you eat breakfast and perhaps swim a few strokes to cool off. At mid-morning, head to the main port of the island of Adamas. After a delicious lunch, you have free time to walk the alleys of the village and discover its orthodox church Saint-Haralambos Adamantas, traditional restaurants and beaches. After a short hike, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the port. You are free to get dinner.

DAY 3: Milos - Polyaigos - Kimolos (approximately 12 nautical miles)
After a delicious breakfast, your skipper sets sail for the largest uninhabited island in the Aegean sea, Polyaigos. You will be amazed by its lush nature and pristine unspoiled beaches. Its only inhabitants are wild goats, migratory birds, raptors and reptiles. The island is part of the EU’s Natura 2000 programme. For lunch, you will anchor in Kimolos. You have a free afternoon to explore this village and admire its houses and monuments with typical Cycladic architecture. You are free to get dinner.

DAY 4: Kimolos - Sifnos (approximately 17 nautical miles)
On this day, your crew invites you to spend the day in Sifnos. Start the day with a morning swim in the sheltered bay of Fykiada. Sail along the east coast to reach Platis Gialos. The seaside village is renowned for its beach, a multi-time recipient of the label of sustainable tourism, the 'Blue Flag', from the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education). After lunch, enjoy a free afternoon to walk on one of the many hiking trails and perhaps discover local ceramic crafts. You are free to get dinner.

DAY 5: Sifnos - Serifos (approximately 20 nautical miles)
The morning is spent north of Sifnos, exploring the pretty beach of Cheronissos and its fishing village. You can take a swim to discover the seabed or try paddleboarding. The skipper then hoists the sails and makes his way towards Serifos. You will dock at the port of Livadi, located at the bottom of a bay. It is overlooked by the capital of the island, Chora (Ios) and its pristine white houses. The city is located about 5km from the port (it is possible to get the bus there, at your expense) and offers an incredible panoramic view of the Aegean sea and its neighboring islands. You are free to get dinner.

DAY 6: Serifos - Kythnos (approximately 26 nautical miles)
Sail towards the west of the island of Serifos, take a swim in the clear water of the bay of Koutalas. After lunch, you head in the direction of Kythnos and stop in the port of Merichas. The island has a bus network in the summer (at your expense) that serves the villages of Chora, Loutra, Kanala or Driopida. It’s up to you to choose where you would like to visit. You are free to get dinner.

DAY 7: Kythnos - Lavrion (approximately 25 nautical miles)
It’s time to begin your return journey. Before reaching the port of Lavrion, the crew offers passengers the chance to spend a few hours in front of the beach of Kolona. It is the perfect place to swim and then relax on the warm sand. Lunch is the ideal time to exchange your impressions of the islands and your favourite stopovers. You will reach the marina of Lavrion at the end of the day. You are free to get dinner.

DAY 8: Lavrion
Last breakfast with your travel companions and crew.
Disembarkation planned for around 9am.

    All our cabin cruises include the services, at a minimum, of a skipper and a hostess (unless otherwise stated in the contract).
  • Does the boat only use the sails?

    The skipper usually decides to send the sails when the speed and direction of the wind allow it, for fun (a quiet, relaxed and romantic trip), to improve stability on the water and for shade!
    The yacht is equipped with two powerful engines that are used when there is no wind, for port maneuvers and in case of adverse weather conditions.

    Your hostess/cook will prepare dishes that can be enjoyed around the world. These dishes will primarily be cooked with fresh and local products (seasonal vegetables, fresh cheese, honey, etc.).

    Thank you for understanding.
