Combining history and hedonism to dazzling effect, Greece’s sun-kissed archipelago exudes an unrivalled classicism.

 

With picturesque cobbled streets, traditional white and blue architecture and panoramic sea views, the Cyclades are understandably one of Greece’s biggest drawcards. Sun-seeking crowds cling to the likes of Mykonos and Santorini, but venture beyond the tourist trail and you’ll discover impressive ancient and mythological sites, remote beaches and charming little hill towns, not to mention quality foodie hotspots. Cruising the Peloponnese Coast and Aegean Sea on a small ship means you can drop anchor wherever you like. Explore iconic ruins in Athens, brush up on your mythology in Delos and Delphi, or feast on meze at a traditional taverna in Sifnos, then return to your ship to soak in the sun and stunning sea views from its spacious outdoor deck.

Highlights of Greece

Boats are stopped by the beach side of Sifnos in Greece

Savour the flavours of Sifnos

There’s no better place to experience a slice of authentic Greek life than Sifnos. It has the brilliant white villages, idyllic beaches and fertile valleys one expects from the Cyclades, but lacks the tourist masses. It also has a strong pottery tradition and fantastic food scene. After savouring local specialties like mastelo (lamb stew) on a sun-kissed terrace, you’ll never want to leave.

Ancient ruins of the lions statues at Delos in Greece

Explore ancient ruins in Delos

Central to the Cyclades archipelago is the tiny island of Delos. The mythological birthplace of twin gods Apollo and Artemis, Delos was once an important religious centre; these days, it’s considered one of Greece’s most important archaeological sites. Explore incredible ruins dedicated to the gods including the Temple of the Delians and the Terrace of the Lion at this World Heritage site.

Ruins of the temple of Athena Pronaia in Delphi, Greece

Brush up on Greek mythology in Delphi

On the slopes of Mount Parnassus lies an important archaeological site with mythological roots. In ancient times, Delphi was believed to be the sanctuary of Apollo and shrine of his oracle. It was also believed to be the centre of the world. Spend time exploring the fascinating relics that remain, like the Temple of Apollo, while soaking up stunning mountain views.

Excursions and experiences

 

 

Each of our tailored itineraries is sprinkled with what we call 'Peregrine Moments', those special experiences you'll only have while travelling in a small group with one of our local leaders. 

  • Enjoy an evening picnic while watching the sun set on Santorini’s caldera for an evening you won’t forget.
  • Learn the secrets behind Sifnos’ long-running pottery tradition with a workshop visit and demonstration.
  • Tour ancient archaeological sites such as Delos, Olympia and Delphi with knowledgeable local guides who explain their history and significance.
  • Venture off the tourist trail and visit the Monastery of Hozoviotissa in Amorgos, a striking white monastery built into the face of a cliff.

A world of travel in your hands

Cruising along the famous coastlines and waterways is one of life's real treasures, the kind you circle in the calendar and greedily count down the days towards. You've saved for this, earned this, and we want to help you enjoy every moment right down to the final drop of wine at sunset.
