    Lake Kerkini Adventure Tour

    Tucked up near the mountainous Bulgarian border lies Lake Kerikini – a vast area of marshland that's a haven for rare plants, birds and wildlife. It all starts in a traditional boat called a ‘plaves', to glide along the water and admire the idyllic natural scenery. Lake Kerikini is the premier birding site in Greece, so coming to a complete stop, you'll hear the sounds of over a thousand birds around you. Afterwards, off-roaders will take you to places around the lake. Back at base, a well-deserved lunch is served, washed down with a few drinks to end the day.

    Mount Athos Afternoon Cruise

    Often referred to as the ‘Holy Mountain', Mount Athos really is a sight to behold. With access restricted, a cruise around the coast of Mount Athos is the best way to see the UNESCO-listed complex of monasteries that cling to the cliffs. And as one of the oldest surviving monastic complexes in the world, its history is truly fascinating. Sit back on board and listen to the commentary as we sail as close as possible to its shores, taking in the vistas all around and viewing eight of the twenty monasteries. Towering 2,000m before you, the steep slopes of Mount Athos make for a cruise with a difference.
