Two day excursion

Holy Mountain
of Athos

Option 2 

We set course towards the southern part of the Mount Athos peninsula, to the holy monastery of Agia Laura (Mount Athos’ oldest monastery dating back from 961 AD).

We will sail around the peninsula’s edge wherewe can view the skete, tiny houses that have been built inside the rocks above steep slopes. These amazing structures allow the monks to live in an isolated environment.  We sail north along the coast, which offers breathtaking views. On this section of our cruise, we will see the holy monasteries of Dionysiou, Grigoriou and SimonosPetras. All these monasteries have been built facing the North Agean, giving them an impressive and mystical appearance.

We spend our evening on the picturesque Ammouliani island. A large variety of tavernas and low-key bars next to the water guarantee a pleasant evening after a full day at sea.

In the morning following breakfast we will visit the remote island of Drenia where we will anchor in a beautiful setting. Here, you will have the opportunity to sit back, relax, swim and enjoy the secluded environment. Afterwards, we will commence our return journey to Thassos.
