Description of Multi activity holiday in Greece

Some people seek out Greece holidays where all they have to do is crash on the beach, and others want to explore through adventure, activity and outdoor fun in the sun. And also in nature. This week long holiday in the Peloponnese ticks all of these boxes, offering an itinerary with a wide array of activities in the most stunning surroundings, both mountainous and coastal.

This activity holiday is suitable for all types of travellers, whether you are solo, a couple, a group of friends or seeking the perfect Greece family holiday (minimum age for most activities is seven). Our itinerary revolves around the beautiful Peloponnese areas of Nafplio, Kalamata and Tripoli, each boasting a vast ancient history but also access to a natural playground.

Our activities include hiking, biking, rafting, sea kayaking and other water sports such as water skiing or scuba diving, and in order to immerse yourself not only in the region’s turquoise waters but also its culture, we include a cooking lesson and wine tasting too. There is also free time built into the itinerary, so that you can explore some of the region’s famous archaeological sites, such as ancient Olympia, Mycenae, Epidaurus and Sparta, or indeed the Acropolis in Greece.

Do contact us if you want to create your own personalised programme of activities and day trips, to suit your budget or time available to visit the Peloponnese and we will do all we can to help you.

Holiday type
Small group holidays
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. If you’re heading off on a gap year your, perhaps – but for those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

The leaders are not guides – they’re not there to shepherd you around. Instead, they’ll let you know which local restaurant serves great value food – without running the risk of travellers’ tummy. They’ll allow you to avoid hour-long queues at train stations and attractions.

We like to think of small group travel as the Goldilocks option. It is independent travel without the fuss, worry and bunk beds – and organised travel without the coaches. And it’s cheaper than a tailor made tour. It’s sits somewhere in the middle – and we think it’s just about right.
What are the main benefits?
Big experiences
Have big, life-enriching experiences that would be impossible to organise without lots of time and insider knowledge.

Simplicity
Make the most of your holiday time by letting someone else do the hard work and boring logistics!

Peace of mind
Small group tours take care of the security aspects – and provide a safety net should anything unexpected happen.
Who is it ideal for?
Travellers who are short of time
If you don’t have three months to spend exploring, small groups trips let you cover more ground in less time. Your days are not spent queuing for tickets or finding hotels – so you can squeeze more into your holiday.

Solo travellers who’d like company
Likeminded travel companions plus peace of mind for those travelling alone. Single supplements are usually available – providing privacy if you want it.

Less confident travellers
Stray from the tourist trail without worrying about getting lost, and meet local people without dealing with the language barrier.
Mythbuster
“I won’t get any privacy!”
Couples and friends have private rooms, and you can choose to eat alone or not. Single supplements give solo travellers their own room.

“There won’t be any free time”
Free mornings or afternoons let you explore on your own, or just relax.

“The accommodation will be basic”
Trips are as high or low end as you like. Though off the beaten track destinations won’t have luxury hotels, this is all part of the adventure.

“I won’t like the other travellers!”
Tour operators try to create groups with a similar demographic – age, families, activity levels... Chances are, you’ll even make new friends.

“Will we be following an umbrella?”
No.
Meet a group leader
As well as taking care of all the day-to-day practicalities, your group leader is the one who will turn your trip into an adventure. Leaders are extraordinary characters – the kind of person who has spent 14 Christmas days on the slopes of Mount Everest, runs marathons wearing tiger suits to raise funds for their conservation and thinks nothing of leading an overland trip in Sudan or Afghanistan. Fearless and inspiring, group leaders are as important as the destination itself.

Meet a local guide
No matter how experienced your group leader, they can never make up for the knowledge gained from a lifetime in the destination. That’s why many of our trips work with local guides around the world – who invite you into their homeland with pleasure. As well as doing crazy things like climbing Kilimanjaro 100 times, they also donate their time to local projects supported by travellers – such as rebuilding Sri Lankan villages following the 2004 tsunami.

Responsible tourism

Multi activity holiday in Greece

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

All the activities included in this trip, are environment-friendly. We prefer using the power of the wind and the power of the water rather the power of gas and that’s why we don’t offer activities like jeeps or jet-skis. We are also owners of the small city hotel that you will stay during your holidays here where we recycle paper, glass, plastic and metal. At your arrival here you will be given a Travellers Code of Conduct, where you will get informed about how to apply maximum responsibility during your holidays concerning environmental and socio-cultural factors.

Community

Choosing our holidays, you choose responsible holidays. As Mr Panagiotopoulos, founder and president of our company, was born and raised here, one of his biggest concerns is to secure that tourism will not affect negatively our area in ecological and socio-cultural way, and also that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel. Our company which is the organizer and operator of this package is local-based and all our guides, drivers, activity specialists and employees are locals too, ensuring not only the economical benefit of our area but also your cultural benefit.

In this trip, you will visit so many different places and you will always be surrounded by locals, experiencing the Greek way of living. But what is most important for us, is that your presence here gives us a strong negotiation card for pressing the local authorities for the development of our area, such us constructing cycling streets in our city or finance and organize better our archaeological museums and sites.
