Greek Goddess Sailing Adventure

About the Experience

Dreaming of crystal-clear sapphire waters, whitewashed villages, history laden ruins, lively Greek culture, and divine cuisine fresh from the land or sea?

On our Greek Goddess Sailing Adventure, you’ll spend a blissed-out week on a private yacht cruising under sun drenched skies, touring amazing ancient Goddess sites such as the Temple of Aphaia. Relax in the sun or try your hand at sailing as you journey through deserted bays and famous archaeological sites. You will have plenty of time for hiking, snorkeling, exploring, and relaxing before digging into some local seafood.

It’s easy to understand how so many myths of Goddesses, from Aphrodite to Athena, originated in this vast and enchanting landscape, with wide open skies and a sea speckled with islands. Days melt from one to the next while you relish the white sand and palm-fringed beaches. Greece offers endless activities and is a magnet for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. Wander along cobbled, Byzantine footpaths, hike into volcanoes, watch for dolphins and sea turtles, and cycle through lush forests.

Day One: Welcome to Athens

You will meet your wild women group at 5pm at a taverna in Athens for a welcome dinner and orientation. This night is spent on the boat in Alimos Marina, so you can get familiarized with the boat and enjoy the Plaka nightlife, setting sail the next morning.

Day Two: Set sail for Epidhavoros!

Here is a small quaint village, 30 minutes away from one of the best preserved Greek theatres and one of the finest pieces of classical architecture in existence. It’s unparalleled acoustics are still used for concerts today. In the last 3 years they recently discovered another smaller theatre under a hill of orange and lemon trees overlooking the harbour.

Day Three: Poros-Bound

Onwards to Poros, the town built on the rocky slopes of the island. As you approach, you will say to yourself, “this is a Greek island!” It’s one of the most beautiful approaches in Greece. There are several lovely bays for swimming, some with ruins dating back centuries. You’ll find here a marine academy, great night life, wonderful tavernas, and beautiful markets for stocking up on fresh fruits and veggies as well as a secret bakery down an alley way with the most amazing bread ever!

Day Four: Cliffside Sunset Party

Sail to Hydra – an artists’ hideout where not a car can be seen on the whole island. Take a donkey ride to the top of the island for a spectacular view, and later you will join the nightly sunset party at “Hydronetta” on the side of the cliffs, listen to classical music, sip a cocktail, and applaud the sun making its daily dip into the sea! Hydra is a great 2-day island if you want to spend some more time soaking up the atmosphere!

Day Five: Methana Peninsula

Onwards to Vathi! This is a small fishing village with beautiful tavernas and beaches nearby. It is also a great starting point to visit the Kameni Volcano. A van can be arranged to take you from Vathi to Kameni for a short 30 minute hike up the volcano for those who wish to take in the spectacular views. There is a wonderful taverna at the base of the lava flow where a group dinner can also be arranged. This whole area is truly special and virtually unknown. A spa visit is also an option for those who may want to soak in the mineral waters of the volcano in Methana town.

Day Six: Sail to Aegina

This is the island of pistachios and octopus with a well-protected anchorage. Hire a scooter or taxi and ride over to Agia Marina harbour for lunch and a hike up to the Temple of Aphaia, one of the finest Doric Temples remaining in all of the Greek Iles.

Day Seven: Back to the Beginning

The group can leave early morning for a short 1.5 mile motor to a beautiful deserted island for swimming and sunning before sailing back to Alimos Marina in Athens or spend the morning in Aegina doing some sightseeing before sailing back to Athens, ready to bring your adventures home.
