Day 1 – Start of your Greek holiday

Today you will take a flight from the UK to Athens, the capital of Greece. Your driver will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall for a relaxed start to your trip in this capital city, which is home to around four million people. You’ll stay in a modern hotel in the city centre with a swimming pool on the roof terrace with a view of the Acropolis. This is a great spot for a cooling dip after a day of sightseeing! There is a metro station close to your hotel, allowing easy access to the main attractions. We loved the Plaka neighborhood as its a place where Greeks and tourists gather in the evening – this is a good spot for a family dinner as there are plenty of great restaurants.

Day 2 – Explore Athens

Today you will head out with your English-speaking local guide. Together you’ll explore the city highlights, along with some more hidden spots that you would not easily find yourself. You can also view the archaeological finds in the metro stations which were discovered during the construction of the underground network. After your tour you can visit the Acropolis and explore the rest of the city – stroll past souvenir shops, stop at kafenions (typical Greek cafes) and visit tavernas playing Greek sirtaki music that carries on the warm evening air.

Day 4 & 5 – River trekking & free time

This morning you’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to the starting point of your river trekking adventure. Accompanied by a local guide, you’ll traverse the Achla river, meandering through the heart of the forest – an oasis of tranquility and a great spot to cool down, especially during the warm summer months. The rest of your time on Andros is free for you to do as you wish. Why not head out on a hike, we will provide an app with various routes, or relax on one of the many beaches for some sun, sea and sandcastles.
