It's no myth, Greece most certainly 'is the word' when it comes to idyllic, active holiday escapes to one of Europe's most enticing sun drenched destinations. Greece, with its 1400+ islands, has one of the world's longest coastlines, making it just ripe to explore on a cycle and sail holiday. For walkers, over 80% of Greece is mountainous which means some sensational walking holiday itineraries from Crete to the mainland.

Our range of walking, cycling and ship based holidays in Greece will take you well beyond the many busy ports and tourist centres of Greece and out to more traditional, white washed villages where the hospitality of the local people is as generous now as it ever was.

Our active holidays in Greece have proven to be very popular. Our Greek Island cycle and sail holidays both explore the unspoilt beaches, backroads, ancient ruins and less visited villages of either the Ionian or Aegean islands; our Crete Mountains & Coast combines the high peaks and rugged coast, featuring quaint beaches as well as the longest gorge in Europe; and our Mount Olympus Guided Walk offers the legendary hike to the home of the ancient Greek gods.
