Greek Island Hopping: discover all the famous islands in a week

Crete ● Ios ● Mykonos ● Naxos ● Paros ● Santorini ● 29 December 2017

During the winter, summer vacation is the thing we all wait impatiently. Swimming in emerald seas, strolling around narrow paved streets and sunbathing under the warm sun is the ideal frame for amazing holidays. However, most people can't afford spending vacation more than one week in a foreign country, such as Greece. They want to save money for the accommodation in Greece, the air- and ferry-tickets as well as the entertainment. A week is a good time span to explore a new destination, even the most interesting. But the Greek islands are a different chapter. You have heard about them, and you know that they are innumerable, beautiful and charming. If you spend the week of your vacation on only one island, you will need many summers to visit the most famous islands of Greece.

Well, the planet earth is a wonderful place, and we can understand that you want to explore also other places than Greece and its islands. Should you decide which island to visit? This decision can be tough. Mykonos with its wild nightlife and its fascinating Chora? Or Santorini with its impressive volcano, the whitewashed villages hanging from the caldera and the romantic atmosphere? Or maybe Ios, the island of the youngsters with the alternative nightlife and the gorgeous beaches? How about Naxos, the island that charmed Anthony Bourdain with its creative Greek cuisine and has lovely inland villages and exotic beaches? Paros, the counterweight to Mykonos in regard of the nightlife and the beauty of its Chora? Hmm.. you have forgotten Crete, the island that combines all the above mentioned: delicious cuisine, beautiful villages, stunning beaches, touristic facilities and nightlife.

The good news is that you don't have to choose. If you are a fan of adventurous vacation full of interesting things to do, Greek Island Hopping is the answer to your thoughts. The Greek islands have the great asset that they are located in a short distance to each other. Why not take advantage of this fact? The only things you need are good mood, eagerness, a well-planned organisation of your accommodation and of course Greek Island Pass. With Greek Island Pass, you can travel in Cyclades and Crete doing multiple routes by ferry anytime you want and paying only the price of one ferry-ticket. Thus, affordable vacation and island hopping are only a click away.

Spend a day or two on each island, and you can achieve the unachievable: visiting all the famous Greek islands in only one summer. During this unforgettable journey, you will touch the aura of Cyclades and understand why this island complex is renowned all over the world. A week full of sandy beaches with turquoise waters, nice white villages with traditional taverns, significant historical sites of ancient Greece and the famous Greek sun. Easily, on a budget and only within a week or 10 days. Can you imagine a fuller and more fascinating summer?
