Description of Greece archaeology and activity holiday

This eight day archaeology holiday in Greece allows travellers to step back some 3500 years in order to trace the origins of modern times at some of the country’s and the world’s most important archaeological sites.

As an activity tour you’ll find yourself cycling and hiking through flower-filled meadows and across rugged gorges as well as enjoying wine tasting sessions and learning how to cook traditional Greek dishes in between visiting the Acropolis, Sparta and the ancient ruins of Epidaurus and Olympia.

From the Corinth Canal to Mycenae, Nafplio and the temple of Alea Athena, this archaeology holiday in Greece is as much about history and culture as it is about enjoying activities outdoors where the customs and the character of the country, both past and present, really comes to life.

Hiking through the Lousios Gorge unveils secret monasteries whilst cycling trips to ancient Arcadia’s religious centre of Tegea, offer ample opportunities to stretch legs and make the most of temple ruins and surrounding views.

Aside from the cultural and historical discoveries travellers will find lots of excuses to relax with time spent at the beach or at the local vineyards allowing you to make the most of the warm weather in some truly wonderful settings.

Optional excursions and activities can be added to this eight day archaeology holiday to help you really make the most of your time in Greece with additional charges for personalised itineraries dependant on the amount of travellers wishing to join in as well as the length of the tour.

Based in Tripoli, within the heart of the Peloponnese, our archaeology holidays evoke the perfect balance between discovery, energy and relaxation with an overnight stay in Athens and a couple of nights by the sea in Galaxidi offering an excellent overview of life away from the tourist hordes.

I am happy to tell you that this vacation was our very best ever. My husband and I went with our 16-year old granddaughter. What was so great about the trip was that it appealed so much to all of us, despite our very different ages and different interests. Read full review
