15 crazy things to do in Greece before you die

Greece ● 09 July 2017
 

Greece is a country with great variety and numerous options for any kind of activity. In Greece, you can do many crazy things that will be your lifetime experiences. That is your bucket list with the best unusual things to do. Keep in mind that these vacations will be the most enjoyable of your life.

1. Cross a Greek island on a bicycle. You will enjoy an amazing coastline and a magnificent view from the top of a cliff.

2. Try skiing on a Greek mountain. Kalavrita, Arachova, Kaimaktsalan and Seli are only a few of the ski resorts in Greece. And if the weather is good and the season is about to end in April or May, you can swim afterwards in the sea, which is located less than 1 hour from the ski resort!

3. Eat breakfast on a Greek island, lunch on another and dinner on a third. Greek islands are located very close to each other and ferries have flexible schedule. With the island passes of Hostelbay, you can visit the one island after another paying only for the one route, having the ultimate island-hopping experience!

4. Climb Mount Olympus. Meet the gods and have an abundant culinary adventure.

5. Dive with dolphins. In Crete and Sporades, there are hundreds of them everywhere.

6. Scuba dive, surf and do other water sports in the Greek islands. The water sports facilities in Greek islands such as Rhodes, Zakynthos, Crete and Mykonos are fully organised and amazing. Plus, the waters are calm, and they don't include dangerous species or sharks.

7. Volunteer during your summer vacations. Save the sea turtle caretta-caretta in Zakynthos, the seal monachus-monachus in Alonissos or the strays in Athens.

8. Visit the volcanoes of Greece. Milos, Santorini and Nisyros islands are waiting for you.
