Location

Sporades

The island group of Sporades is located on the southeast of Mount Pelion, in the northwest Aegean Sea. Four of them - Alonnisos, Skiathos, Skopelos, and Skyros - are inhabited. In Sporades nature has created images of incomparable beauty, full of monasteries and old stone houses with outdoor ovens, breathtaking landscapes, dazzling, flat-roofed whitewashed houses, an idyllic coastlines, caves, chapels and churches; labyrinthine streets in lively neighborhoods, home to the Mediterranean monk seals, dolphins, and rare species of flora and fauna.

Sporades are the third most famous sailing destination in Greece. Every island has its own charm and has something very authentic to offer its visitors.

Skiathos

The embarkation will take place on the island of Skiathos, the most popular of the Sporades group. An island with cosmopolitan atmosphere, Skiathos is known for the sandy organized beaches, the lively bars and the lush green background. Boasting a beautiful - packed with pine trees - natural landscape and having over 60 stunning beaches, Skiathos is a paradise for nature lovers!

Skopelos

Skopelos is a wonderful island that stands out for its lush vegetation, its virgin beaches, and its picturesque villages like Skopelos Town and Glossa with unique traditional architecture. Skopelos gives a breath of relaxation from the first step on the island. The green upon green is stunning: a pine-tree-studded coastline and hidden coves with their fishing boats, winding paths through dense virgin forests.

Alonnisos

Alonnisos charms visitors with the relaxing atmosphere and the green background. Alonnisos is at the center of a marine park that’s home to dolphins and Mediterranean monk seals and has some stunning beaches and inlets. The island has a rich history and ancient as well as Byzantine ruins. Charming and pure, its lush, green landscape and pristine beaches with crystal-clear water make it one of the most beautiful islands of the Sporades!

The uninhabited islands northeast of Alonnisos are a nature reserve for a series of terrestrial and marine species living in the Mediterranean Sea, including hundreds of plants and animals, as well as remarkable archaeological and historical monuments. These islands have very special energy and will lure you in with their unpretentious magic.

Gioura

On the rocky island Gioura many rare plants can be found and a unique type of wild goat lives on the island. This island is also the home of a large variety of birds, among which are around 800 falcons. Gioura and its caves with beautiful stalagmite and stalactite structures provide a living place to the Mediterranean monk seal.

Skantzoura

Between Alonnisos and southern Skyros is 8 km2 large Skantzoura island, which holds an old and abandoned monastery. Skantzoura is a flat island with hills and shores made of white marble. On the island and its steep cliffs live and breed rare species of birds like the Audouin's Gull and Eleonora's falcon.

Piperi
