In just 7 days you may easily explore the islands of Thassos, Samothrace and Lemnos. You may also sail the area for 14 days in order to reach the coastline of the gorgeous Chalkidiki. As in most greek destinations you will have the opportunity to meet the ancient greek civilization in many locations. Even our base in Avdira is next to an important Archaeological Site.

It is now a self-governing portion of Greek land, yet spiritually it is under the jurisdiction of Constantinople's Ecumenical Patriarchate.
