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 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 your feet in the sand and the sea, to cosmopolitan Matogiannia Street, the energy of the island will captivate you. In Santorini, Perivolos will remain unforgettable, as you sink into the beach beds, cocktail in hand. Next, catch a wave on Paros, perfect for wind- and kite-surfing. In Crete’s Hersonissos, you’ll dance until dawn at parties that seem to have no beginning and no end. Whatever Greek island you visit, however many days you stay, the choices are plenty, the experiences unique and the number of activities, endless.

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 in Hora, shop, grab a bite to eat on the cobblestone streets and have a coffee while people-watching. The vibrant nightlife begins early – off the pier or on the beach, a full moon and a warm night is the perfect setting for night-swimming. Clubbing can wait a little longer; the nightlife here begins much later.

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.

Here even in the winter, fun is turned up to the 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.

Your trip continues: the smiles of the locals in traditional villages and festive fairs. You’ll quickly discover that Greece has a social spirit, filled with dancing and nonstop fun, fuelled by wine and raki. You’ll leave with a backpack full of memorable moments and unforgettable holiday experiences.
