Description

Day 1: Athens
Individual arrival at Marina Zeas, the port of Piraeus, only 25 km away from Athens airport. Boarding starts from 2:00 PM. Dinner on board.

Day 2: Kythnos Island (25 km)
In the morning, the boat will take us to Kythnos Island, famous for its cheese and honey since ancient times. The first bike tour will start from Merichas' port and will take us to the capital Chora, offering along the way incredible views of the coast. Chora is a charming village, located on a plateau; its narrow lanes are decorated with painted flowers and geometric figures. The journey continues to Driopida, a picturesque village, before returning to Merichas, where you can enjoy the evening in a traditional taverna.

Day 3: Kythnos Island – Serifos Island – Syros Island (28 km)
In the morning, the boat will take us to Serifos, a small island away from usual tourist spots, with deep valleys, countless bays, coves, and beautiful sandy beaches. From the port town of Livadi, we cycle along a winding road toward the main town of Serifos, whose cube-shaped houses nestle along the ridge, high above sea level. We continue through pristine landscapes to the Byzantine monastery dedicated to Archangel Gabriel. We will return to Livadi along a photo-friendly coastal road. In the afternoon, the boat will take us to Syros, where we can relax on a beautiful beach.

Day 4: Syros Island – Kea Island (34 km)
Today we will start from the fascinating capital of Syros: Ermoupolis city with its majestic neoclassical architecture, cobbled streets, and lively squares. We cycle along Syros' coast, rich in bays and coves, until we reach the beautiful beach of Galissas. Before returning to Ermoupolis we will have time to visit the magnificent Santa Barbara convent. In the afternoon we will board a boat to reach Kea Island.

Day 5: Kea Island – Poros Island (25 km)
Our starting point to explore the northwesternmost inhabited island of the Cyclades archipelago is the beautiful natural harbor of Korissia. From here we cycle uphill toward the island's capital Ioulis, heading first towards the white sandy beach and then to Otzias, where we can take a refreshing dip. We will later return by bike to Korissia. In the afternoon we will take a boat to reach Poros in the Saronic Gulf. The port city of Poros is truly spectacular, its iconic clock tower stands above the rest of the city providing a real Greek atmosphere for a relaxing evening.

Day 6: Poros Island – Aegina Island (23 km)
Our bike tour will lead us through Poros and then to Russian Bay, a sandy beach with turquoise-blue water where we won't resist a swim. Back in Poros, we will find the boat waiting for us with a delicious lunch during the cruise to Aegina.

Day 7: Aegina Island (35 km)
Beyond the borders of Greece, Aegina island is known for its incredible pistachios. Today's bike tour will take us to the sanctuary of Aphaia. The incredibly well-preserved temple is the only point in Aegina where the Aegean sea can be seen on both sides. On the way back we cut across the island's center passing by Nektarios monastery to return to Aegina city, where we will board the boat for our last cruise towards Piraeus. We will enjoy our last evening meal onboard together with friends, guides, and crew, sharing the wonderful experiences of the week.

Day 8: Athens
After breakfast, disembarkation at Piraeus and end of services. Individual departure or extension of the stay.
