Relax, unwind and discover the outstanding natural beauty of the Ionian Islands on this superb cruise on board a beautiful gulet, carrying just 16 guests.

Enjoy refreshing swim stops in quiet bays overlooked by verdant pine forests, and visit unspoilt islands off the beaten track. Every evening is spent in port meaning you can step ashore and sample the delicious local cuisine in traditional Greek tavernas.

Highlights of this relaxing gulet cruise include the picturesque harbour of Fiscardo, lined with ornate mansions and villas, the yachting haven of Nidri, and rarely-visited twin islands of Kalamos and Kastos. You'll also visit the beautiful village of Assos with its pastel-coloured houses which are reflected in the clear emerald waters below.

Ionian Island Odyssey

Day 1 - UK - Kefalonia (Greece) - Sami

Fly from the UK to Kefalonia and transfer by coach to Sami to embark your gulet, Aphrodite or Harmonia. Spend the remainder of the day at leisure exploring this beautiful little resort situated in a stunning sandy bay.

Day 2 - Fiscardo

This morning, cruise north, navigating the narrow channel which divides Kefalonia and Ithaca. Enjoy a refreshing swim stop at Antisamos beach which was featured in Captain Corelli's Mandolin. After a delicious lunch onboard, you'll arrive in the picturesque harbour of Fiscardo with its magnificent mansions and villas. The tiny bay is popular with the yachting fraternity and is home to some incredible tavernas.

Day 3 - Lefkas

Enjoy breakfast onboard before setting sail to the tranquil island of Lefkas. After a relaxing swim stop in Sivota Bay, continue to the bay of Nidri where you'll moor overnight. Nidri is a yachting paradise, located in a protected bay, overlooked by olive groves and pine-covered hills. The small town stretches along the waterfront and offers numerous tavernas and cafes.

Day 4 - Skorpios - Meganissi

Cruise around the little island of Skorpios, once the private retreat of Aristotle Onassis, a Greek shipping magnate. The island now belongs to a Russian billionaire. Later, continue to the pretty island of Meganissi, just south of Lefkas. It is a tranquil island with pebbly beaches, and the village of Vathy has just a few tavernas. It is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing meal ashore overlooking the illuminated harbour.

Day 5 - Kalamos - Kastos

Head off the beaten track today and discover the twin islands of Kalamos and Kastos. There is only a small number of permanent residents and the scenery is simply breathtaking. Tonight, enjoy a barbecue on board under the Mediterranean sky.

Day 6 - Atokos - Itchaca

After breakfast, sail west towards Ithaca. En route, you'll stop for a swim in the crystal clear waters off the barren island of Atokos. Continue to the beautiful village of Kioni on Itchaca before mooring in the stunning bay of Vathy. With mountains stretching the full length of the island, the villages of Ithaca have retained an unspoilt, oldworld feel.

Day 7 - Kefalonia

Today you'll cruise back to Kefalonia. Sail the west coast with it striking limestone cliffs, stopping at the charming village of Assos, overlooked by an impressive 16th-century Venetian Castle. The pastel-coloured houses are reflected in the emerald waters of the cove, making it one of the most picture-postcard locations on the island.

Day 8 - Kefalonia - UK

Disembark and transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK.
