Skill Rating: 2
Accomodations: Family Owned Inns

Based on Double Occupany. Single Supplement applies



The fabled island of Santorini has inspired travelers for thousands of years, and in modern times it is renowned as the most romantic of all the Greek islands. Is Santorini lost Atlantis? Many believe it is, but there is no doubt that it's paradise.  And on this one-of-a-kind adventure, you'll learn its secret coves, remote volcanic black sand beaches, and undersea hot springs in a way few ever do - by kayak.

During the dazzling days filled with sunshine, we'll paddle the waters, hike the still-active volcano which is the centerpiece of the caldera, and enjoy the dramatic seascapes topped by white towns on top of the cliffs that combine to make Santorini one of the most beautiful locations on earth.

At night, we'll share in the splendid world-class Greek cuisine of Santorini, taste the special wines that this dry volcanic terroir produces, and even have time to explore the shopping opportunities in the towns of Thira and Oia.

But these indulgences will pale beside the centerpiece of our trip together - two nights on the rarely-visited island of Thirassia, staying in a cliff-top village that time has missed and that will make you feel that you're the first to discover your very own Greek island.

During this unforgettable trip, we will circumnavigate both the island of Santorini itself and Thirassia, observe the legendary sunsets - and a few sunrises, too, for the early-birds among us - and create memories that will last a lifetime.
