8 days

From €2331 / per person

Join our ever-popular 7-night sail around the unique Cyclades

Cyclades: Dazzling white villages, golden beaches and crystal clear azure waters are just the beginning of what these islands have to offer. Ancient Greek geographers named this unique group of islands the Cyclades. This is because they saw it forming a kind of circle (“kyklos” in Greek) around the sacred island of Delos. According to myth, the islands were said to be the remains of a giants’ fight. They actually came about as a result of enormous geological event like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Similar to the Greek flag, their colors are blue and white. The islands come in various sizes, and each one has its own unique personality despite the fact that the essential elements are the same: unmatched light, crystal ocean, wonderful beaches, gleaming white houses, and bare rock.

Small is beautiful: Folegandros island

A hidden jewel that will take your breath away with its beauty, charm, and peaceful rhythm. Folegandros was a well-kept secret that only a select few were aware of. These days, more and more people are learning about this tiny, isolated island’s untamed beauty and casual pace. Hora, the island’s capital, is perched perilously on a steep cliff, its many squares framed by elegant, classically Cycladic church facades and quaint tavernas.

Galileo: Your home away from home

Imagine a place far from home that feels just like home, where the borders are delineated by the golden shores of the sea; and home is wherever the anchors drop. Imagine 157 feet of comfort, old style beauty, and safety classified by the latest International “Safety of Life at Sea” (SOLAS) standards. You have arrived on board the Galileo!

Deck BBQ & Swim-stop in Poliegos island

Paradise on earth awaits you. Poliegos is the largest uninhabited island in the Mediterranean and a true ecological paradise. Home to rare species of flora and fauna, its beautiful beaches and exotic coves attract yacht owners from all over the world.
