    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Aristotelous Square, Nikis Avenue, Thessaloniki 546 24 Greece

    Grab the chance to discover one of the most secluded areas of Greece, the famous Athos peninsula. Embark on a cruise, learn rich historical info and spend a wonderful day. The first part of the program begins with a transfer by bus to Ormos Panagias, situated in N-E of the Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Mount Athos The Holy Mountain, Mount Athos Greece

    From this seaport, we will go on with our journey, sailing towards the south of the Athos Peninsula, until we reach the south limit, where the highest point is 2.033 m. From here we shall sail north, along the western coast. You will be able to see from a close distance (from the boat), the mysterious and miraculous place which has been for centuries the center of Orthodoxy and you will find out new information about the history of Mount Athos and 8 of its monasteries.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Byzantine Tower of Ouranoupolis, Ouranoupolis Greece

    After approximately 4 hours we shall stop in Ouranoupoli, where you will have enough free time to discover the village, to take a walk, to shop or to have a traditional meal in one of the taverns there. On our way, back from Ouranoupoli, the boat will sail to the west, to Ormos Panagias and for 1 hour and a half you will watch a wonderful program with traditional dances and Greek music. The cruise will finish in Ormos Panagias, where the bus will be waiting for your drive back to Thessaloniki.

    Duration: 4 hours
