Your trip mapped out

Island-hop your way across the Aegean, from the raw natural wonder of Karpathos to the holy sites of Patmos.

 KARPATHOS – Best for activities

despite its diminutive size, Karpathos hits big on the seeing and doing front, with surfing beaches, walking trails and ever-changing scenery

RHODES – Best for History

An ancient mishmash of the medieval and the Byzantine, Rhodes conjures images of gothic princesses and charging knights in armour.

KALYMNOS – Best for life by the  sea

At Pothia harbor, sample the maritime spirit of Kalymnos, with a lively mix of seafront restaurants, fishermen and moped-driving locals.

LEROS – Best for slowing down

Take it down a gear or two by the waters of this delightfully mellow fishing island, where doing nothing has become a  local artform.

PATMOS – Best for culture

With Unesco world heritage sites the Monastery of Saint John and the Cave of the Apocalypse, Patmos isn’t short on spiritual highlights.
