Mother Nature was feeling generous when she created the Greek Islands, a cluster of outcrops scattered across the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Vestiges of the ancient past litter the islands, with ruined cities and temples complementing the white beaches and traditional whitewashed villages.
The islands’ combination of culture, landscape and activities creates a multi-faceted destination, if you’re in search of more beyond the beach and poolside. Deciding which islands to visit can be difficult, but our Greece specialists will use their first-hand knowledge to help you plan your trip and guide you on what to do.
You could tread the quieter paths on Mykonos to reach secluded beaches served by little tavernas, or step back in time on slow-paced, traffic-free Hydra. On Santorini, we can direct you to the best sunset viewing points or arrange for you to stay in a cave hotel dug out of the caldera on the island’s rim. Or, you might prefer sitting on glittering white rock formations overlooking the sea on little-visited Milos.
Whichever your preferences, our specialists have explored the main sights on the Greek Islands, as well as the lesser-known ones. They’ll carefully plan your visit as an individual trip to match your interests, advising on everything from hikes to old monasteries to where to go for the best fresh seafood.
