It is impossible that you haven't heard about Greek Island Hopping. Thousands of travellers from all over the world, but especially from Europe, prefer every year this alternative and fascinating experience of summer vacation. Are you the type of traveller, who loves adventure, wants to explore the most of what this beautiful planet has to give, and doesn't stop until he/she collects as many valuable moments as possible? Then, island hopping in Greece is your thing. Learn first about this way of holidays on the Greek islands and understand why it is the next best thing among experienced travellers in Europe! Besides, memories are the most precious fortune we can achieve in our life...


One summer-more islands

Let's assume that you have only one summer in Greece. Europe has so many wonderful destinations you haven't visited, and you decided to visit Greece and one of its renowned islands for this summer. However, the moment you started searching, you realised that you can't choose only one island! Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, Paros, Naxos or what else? Every single Greek island has something unique to offer. If you visit only one island every time you come to Greece, then you need numerous summers to gain a full picture of Greek islands' charm. With Greek Island Hopping, you can visit more islands during your vacation in a week or 10 days. If it is more important for you to explore various destinations and load your camera's memory with thousand photos than to relax on an island and get rest, then Greek Island Hopping in the Aegean or the Ionian Sea is the ultimate way to be the explorer you always wanted.

Short distance between the islands

Either in the Ionian or in the Aegean Sea, the distance between the islands is really short. Especially in the Dodecanese or the Cyclades, you can travel from one island to another in less than one hour. That means you can visit numerous islands and make your own schedule according to your preferences. Distance and time should not worry you. The next Greek island is there waiting for you!

Yes, Greek Island Hopping can be affordable!

If you have read the article until this point, you may wonder about how much money you have to spend for Greek Island Hopping. "Ok, I like island hopping, but I can't afford it", you may think. Well, we have good news for you! Greek Island Hopping can be truly affordable. In most popular islands, such as Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Rhodes, Paros and Naxos, in addition to luxury and all-inclusive hotels, you can find quality and cheap hostels to spend the night. Plus, Greek food in traditional taverns, especially if you eat souvlaki, can cost you less than 10€ per person, while on the beaches, there are free spaces to sunbathe without paying anything. But the most amazing thing you should take into consideration is that you can find great deals for your ferry tickets. For example, Greek Island Pass is your chance to visit as many islands as you want paying only for one! You book it online, you pay the price of only one ferry ticket and one route, but you can do several routes up to 7 islands anytime you want with the greatest flexibility you can find. Cool?
