This is a truly unique swimming holiday experience which takes place in the spectacular 24-island archipelago of the Greek Sporades. Located in the Aegean Sea, the islands run along the east coast of Greece and are characterised by their dense vegetation and mountainous terrain.
The Sporades are best known for their beautiful beaches and turquoise-blue seas. The islands we explore during this trip form part of the ‘National Marine Park of Alonissos Northern Sporades’ which, at 2,260km2, is the largest marine protected area in Europe. Throughout the course of the week, you will swim along stunning coastlines and island-hop between some of the area’s most beautiful and remote destinations. Lunch is taken in beachside tavernas, where we stop off during our days out to give you an opportunity to relax before the afternoon’s swim.
This Sporades archipelago, which really does live up to its translated meaning of ‘scattered’, is the perfect Greek Island experience. You will have plenty of opportunities to discover the area’s stunning natural beauty and to also meet the fascinating local marine life, including possible sightings of the rare and protected Mediterranean Monk Seal.
