YOUTH HOLIDAYS
IN GREECE

Beautiful Greek islands, exotic beaches, off-road adventures, and nonstop nightlife: the recipe for a fun-filled holiday in Greece

Greece isn’t only the beauty you see on sites and blogs. It’s the energy you feel, all year long, in every corner of the country. In the summer, you’ll even feel it on the decks of the ferries. Young couples, singles, students and groups of friends from all over the world in a holiday mood, the excitement of reaching the Greek islands building up as the boat approaches the ports of Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, Ios, Zante. Corfu and Skiathos. After the countless posts, photos and comments you’ve read on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, it’s time to upload your own.

Holidays in the Greek islands
First stop: Mykonos. From the wild parties on Super Paradise, dancing with barefoot in the sand and the sea, to cosmopolitan Matogiannia Street, the energy of the island will captivate you. On Santorini, Perivolos is one of THE places to be, stretching out on a sun bed and, cocktail in hand, looking irrepressibly cool and trendy. Next, catch a wave on Paros, perfect for wind- and kite-surfing. In Crete’s Hersonissos, you’ll dance until dawn at parties that just seem to be going on permanently. Whatever Greek island you visit, however many days you stay, there are so many activities, choices and utterly unique experiences.

This is the Mediterranean at its best; scuba diving, sailing and surfing, paragliding, and horseback riding on the beach. A little later, you’ll wander around the  Hora, shop, grab a bite to eat and have a coffee while people-watching. And it’s time to turn your attention to the night. As a prelude to all that fun in the scintillating bars and clubs, why not take an after-dark dip to the light of a full moon?

Road trip adventures
Away from the islands, a road trip full of adventure awaits you: from the car window a montage of images flashes in by, each landscape different from the next. Loaded with all the essentials, you’ll explore the Peloponnese with its dozens of incredible beaches and seaside villages. Or go driving through Halkidiki, Pelion and Crete. Here you’ll experience nature in all its glory, all year round: hiking and canoeing, rock climbing and river trekking, dirt roads for motorcycles and 4x4 adventures. You’ll rent stone guesthouses with a group of friends, and spend enchanting evenings gathered around the fire talking, laughing and playing boardgames.

Even in winter, the fun dial is turned up to  max. At the ski centres, the pistes will give you an adrenaline rush, while the hip bars and alpine hangouts ensure you’ll have a blast both on and off the slopes.

As your trip continues, you’ll warm to the smiles of the locals in traditional villages and festive fairs. You’ll quickly discover that Greece has an irrepressible spirit of bonhomie, fueled by dancing and nonstop fun, wine and raki; there is always someone, somewhere ready to make friends with you. You’ll leave with a backpack full of memorable moments and unforgettable holiday experiences.

Experience the best holidays of your life in Greece! Something to tell the grandchildren about!
