Welcome to Mykonos!
Arrive any time before 5pm and you’ll be picked up at the airport. Hugs, handshakes, fist pumps or just a generic wave whatever you fancy you’ll be greeted by our Tru Ninja! As the sun goes down we head out to experience some of Mykonos’ most popular nightlife with our new TruFam, visit Mykonos old town and share a Pina Colada or two or 3… Nothing beats bonding with the gang over a few Oouzo shots or Mythos (Local Beer).
NAXOS! Today we hit up the biggest island of the 6 we visit and there is plenty to do! The best way to get around is by rental car whether you’re used to driving a fiat 500, or a beast 4x4 we’ll be able to find one to fit your taste and size. Your skipper will take you to the coolest hotspots. Stop at The Temple of Dimitra, it’s sort of like Greece’s version of Stonehenge but much more extravagant of course, a local microbrewery, (a microbrewery isn’t a brewery that only produces mini beers and drinks in case you’re wondering although that would be super cute) and visit the Church of Droisani to see the 6th century wall paintings. Take in the view of Mt Zeus at Zas Cave and enjoy a meal at a welcoming local tavern owned by the town butcher.

Let the Island hopping begin!
These next few days are for you and skipper to decide the best route. We leave it open as the tide can play its part in the direction your boat will need to travel in. Whatever direction we go in you will have an incredible time and will get to see a selection of these epic islands. The route may be different, but you will most likely end up stopping at Ios, Paros, Folegandros and Sifnos!
Next up - the lovely island of Paros - known for its hidden beaches, quaint villages and bountiful plant life. The countryside is filled with vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees while in the spring the scenery is dotted with bursts of colour from blooming flowers. Explore Livadhi, the small town to the east easily accessed from the channel between Paros and Naxos. Livadhi is a great place to sit back at a tavernas, enjoy the view and savour some yummy Greek food. History buffs tend to flock to the North side of Paros to Naousa to see the town’s historic port and Venetian ruins.
Welcome to the YUMMIEST island in Greece ;) All you foodies out there are going to have a field day - this tiny Greek island is known for its flourishing culinary scene and is chalk full of small, locally owned ceramic workshops. Check them out - grab a unique, authentic souvenir for gran then walk off the carbs through the quaint neighborhoods and snowy white houses.
We stop at the legendary Ios island - where “spring break lasts all summer”. What more could you need? At night this beautiful island is known for being a menagerie of international college-age students ready for a party and days are spent hanging on the golden-sand beaches. Whether you would rather chill with a drink in hand, take a scenic 25 minute walk up the hill to the old town of Charos, or visit the tomb of Homer (the poet, not Simpson), there’s more than enough to do!
Get your nature fix on the island of Folegandros - an island renowned for natural beauty and yet another Greek island where it’ll be difficult to leave the beach. Folegandros has managed to avoid the tourist crowd, so make your way up to Horas and check out their quiet traffic-free main street and traditional Cycladic architecture. This island is covered in hiking trails, so this is a great opportunity to work off a few of those beers...or just chill and have a few more at the beach. It’s your holiday ;)
After 6 days of sailing we reach our final destination and arguably the most famous island of the trip - Santorini! Whether you are here for legendary sunset cliff top views, to get that photo of the blue-domed church for Instagram or simply to soak in a bit of the Greek island life, Santorini won’t disappoint. This afternoon is free so you can make sure you’ve checked absolutely everything off your bucket list (don’t forget that post-card you promised Mum..) We end the day with an evening farewell dinner and a drink (or ten) at the best restaurant in town.
Today’s the day we all knew was coming and have been dreading - the end of our adventure. If you are anything like us and not ready to accept that this is the end, we highly recommend you stick around Santorini for a night or two to help ease the end of trip blues. Or just avoid the crappy weather back home for another couple days. Either way, probably best to stick around.
