Our Routes - Greece
Kefalonia & The Ionian
For any traveller whose impression of the Greek Islands has been gained from the Aegean, the first sight of the much lusher Ionian Islands can be quite a surprise. This group of seven islands which stretches down the west coast of Greece from Kérkyra (better known as Corfu) to Kýthira (hardly known at all) experiences heavier rainfall, to the benefit of the olive groves, vineyards and orchards.
Hydra & The Saronic
The Saronic Gulf Islands dot the waters nearest Athens and offer a fast track to Greek island life. As with all Greek islands, each of the Saronics has a unique feel and culture, so you can hop between classical heritage, resort beaches, exquisite architecture and remote escapism.
Mykonos & The Cyclades
Ask most people what their image of the Greek Islands is, even if they have never been there, and chances are it will be an image of the Cyclades. Here you find cubic architecture in abundance; whitewashed houses, and vivid blue doors and windows, blue domed churches and all beneath a sky of deepest aquamarine.
Kos & The Dodecanese
This is the most southerly group of Greek islands, and only Crete lies closer to Africa. In summer the temperature can soar, which is what brings the sun worshippers flocking to their sand and shingle beaches.
