activity info

Early pick up from central locations in Thessaloniki and transportation by bus to Ormos Panagias, situated in N-E of the Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki. From there 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. and continue sailling north, along the western coast. You will have the opportunity to admire from the cruise ship, 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. The 'Holy Mountain', which is forbidden to women and children, is also a recognized artistic site. The layout of the monasteries had an influence as far as Russia, and its school of painting influenced the history of Orthodox art. Mount Athos is an Unesco heritage list.

After the end of approximately 4 hours cruise you will stop in the village of Ouranoupoli. Enjoy your free time in order to discover this beautiful village, have a walk, to shop or to have a delicious traditional meal at one of the best taverns there.

Taking the way back to Ormos Panagias, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful program with traditional dances and Greek music. The cruise will finish in Ormos Panagias, where the bus will be waiting for you to drive back to the hotels. Return to Thessaloniki late in the afternoon.

rès belle croisière, surtout le retour avec musiciens et danseurs grecs traditionnels. Juste un bémol: le lieu de rdv du bus le matin qui n'était pas précisé...

“Fascinating views” The scenery seen from the boat is breath taking. (almost) Everything worked like a Swiss clockwork. I recommend that the accompanying person (the guide) will make sure that what she said was also understood. One couple missed the show on the boat, not knowing that the performance takes place one floor lower. It was not clear where the bus will wait for us, as we disembarked the boat. Clear information would be helpful.
