Beaches Beyond Beautiful

Begin your 20-day trip to Greece in the mythical city of Athens, tracing back the roots of Western culture. Then take a ferry out to the heavenly Greek islands to join in on the legendary party scene of Ios, see the remarkable sunsets on the volcanic island of Santorini, get to know Crete like a local, and take in everything Rhodes has to offer! Get ready for the trip of a lifetime through Greece!

Getting a peek back into history in one of the most storied parts of the world and at the same time experiencing some of the nicest beaches on the planet and a vibrant traveler scene that yields awesome, fun parties!

It’s a trip that will satisfy your cravings to see the amazing sights of a country you’ve heard so much about and also get some desired vacation time to soak in the sun, swim in the warm water of the Mediterranean, and consume tons of Greek food and wine! The days will seemingly melt together on this trip as you choose between endless cultural pursuits and serene paradises to relax in. 

Just wrapped up the Greece 20-day trip and it was phenomenal!!! It was my first solo trip and was a bit nervous but the leaders made me feel comfortable the moment they met me at the airport. The accommodations are above and beyond and the perfect location. Lastly, the strangers you meet will become a little family in the short time together and friends for life. I’m already planning my next trip with FnEZ, this time 40 days!

Itinerary

  • Day 1-2   (Athens)

    Group arrives in Greece’s capital. Athens is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3400 years!

    We’ll get to know each other with 2 for 1 beers on a rooftop bar overlooking the Parthenon the night before actually walking up to it on a 2-hour private walking tour of the city (incl).

    After an afternoon of exploring and soaking in the history, shopping, and street pops, we’ll take a private bus to the port and head onto the comfortable and spacious night ferry to Crete.

  • Day 3-6   (Crete)

    Arrive early in the port of Heraklion and take a private bus to Plakias. It’s a small town with a big heart that makes the four nights we spend there truly special.

    You can dive, hike, and relax at your first stop through the Greek Islands. An included day trip to Palm Beach at the end of the Preveli Gorge makes this stop a true paradise. Plakias boasts amazing hiking trails, beautiful sunsets, and some of the best dive sites in Greece. Early morning bus to the port of Heraklion for a day ferry to Ios.

  • Day 7-10   (Ios)

    A short travel day means lots of time to get settled in Ios, an island you won’t want to leave! Ios, a backpacker hotspot, boasts the best party life in Greece. Beyond that, it has the most amazing beaches, the chillest atmosphere, and the nicest people!

    So soak in the nightlife with pool parties, giant Jenga, darts, beer pong and dancing on the bars, and seize the day with wreck dives, beach volleyball, and paddleboarding. Take a short day ferry to Santorini.

  • Day 11-15   (Santorini)

    Take a private bus transfer to our guesthouse. Explore this incredible island, visit the beautiful towns, hike the volcano, get to know the beaches, and enjoy the more youthful area of Perissa where we stay.

    And don’t miss our incredible sightseeing bus tour of the island including a wine tasting, a lighthouse, the highest point in Santorini, and the famous Oia sunset (all included). A hike up to Ancient Thira and some sweet beach clubs round out this stop to make Santorini one of our favourites. Catch a night ferry to Rhodes.

  • Day 16-20   (Rhodes)

    Arrive by night ferry and take a private transfer to our hotel. Rhodes is full of mystery and fun. It’s a perfect mix of old and new with its walled city and ancient roads, and its nightclubs and water park.

    Between a bus trip across the entire island (incl), a bar crawl and the shopping, we’ve got Rhodes covered. Departure the last day.
