In the sea of Ulysses! Discovering the most beautiful islands

Cruises of 7/14 days in the most beautiful Greek islands of the Ionian, Lefkada, Meganisi, Kefalonia, Ithaca, Kastos, Kalamos, Atokos.
This is the proposal of Velainsieme for the spring / summer 2023 activity, aimed at sailing lovers and those who want to try the experience of traveling and living by boat. Sailing in these waters does not involve long transfers, most of the movements are in fact on short stretches and in calm waters where the wind is not lacking.
The skipper is a great connoisseur of the area, we chose to sail between these islands because we believe that it is the most beautiful place in the Mediterranean to fully enjoy a sailing holiday even for those who are at the first experience. The wind is not lacking and you sail quietly in a poorly formed sea close to the countless islands of the archipelago. We know the most beautiful and affordable places, both for offer and quality, which we choose according to the period and the weather forecast.

Not only sailing, for those who want the best!
In the tour we can organize on request: excursions on footor with assisted bikes, yoga classes.
With assisted bikes you can choose: guided tours (which we recommend) or with digital maps by e-bike in the mountainous interiors of Lefkada, Ithaca or Kefalonia. For those who love trekking, we have tested various beautiful and suggestive routes (see our proposal). In short, “together” we can plan a rich and unforgettable holiday.

Outline program
From Sami (base port in Kefalonia, reachable by plane or ferry) or S.Euphemia (in aternative) we head north with a stop in the bay for a first swim in the beautiful waters of Ionian Greece. In the evening we reach Fiscardo, here we can dine by boat or reach the village. In the morning we visit the white beaches northwest of Ithaca, then route to Lefkada, from Lefkada we pass to Meganisi. The tour then continues with the discovery of Kalamos and Kastos, passing through Atokos where we can dive into an exclusive bay. And then to discover the beauties of Ithaca: Kioni, Vhati. From here, head southeast to finally return to Sami. From Sami if we are in advance through a beautiful path in the woods, visit the Acropolis of Sami, archaeological site of great beauty. The program may be subject to change due to weather conditions and / or on the indication of the Skipper.

WHAT AND HOW

We will prefer to travel sailing and stop in the bay rather than in the ports, to enjoy the sea, nature and cuisine on board. However, there will be stops on land, with visits to the enchanting villages of the Greek islands and their taverns full of the culinary delights of Ulysses’ heirs. Finally, if all the crew wants to head to Zakynthos, no problem, we can plan a new tour all together.

We will divide the tasks of navigation and cooking, respecting our travel companions and above all the places we will visit careful to minimize our impact on nature and the ecosystem that will surround us.

For crews who choose 2 weeks of cruise, in addition to the tour described above, we will also sail to Zakynthos and the south-west part of Kefalonia.
10% discount for those who book by the end of February 2023 and for those who book for two weeks.
