Ionian Fantasy Cruise - Our island Hopping Ionian Adventure

12 cabin traditional motor sailer

Our island Hopping Ionian adventure on a comfortable, traditional wooden-hulled motor sailer focuses on the place where modern-day island-hopping all started back in the 1960’s and 70’s – the Ionian Islands. It’s the chain of islands hugging the western Greek mainland, with a huge diversity of history and culture ranging from well known islands like Corfu, Paxos and Lefkas to stunningly picturesque Parga and some small off-the-beaten track places you probably never heard of like Meganissi and Atokos. You can choose to walk barefoot in the sands, cycle up a hill and watch the sunset into Homer’s wine dark Ionian Sea, enjoy octopus and ouzo in a fisherman’s taverna or party the night away in a cosmopolitan music bar. Our Ionian itineraries run weekly from Corfu, embarking every Monday. If you want we can book hotel stays at either end and flights too.

This cruise suits all age groups and also couples as well as single travellers.

Anti-Paxos

Antipaxos and Paxos

Uninhabited Paxos offers crystal clear turquoise waters and a great beach, served by a solitary seasonal beach bar. We continue to the main harbour on Paxos island, Gaios which retains it’s traditional charm yet offering plenty of choice for a pleasant evening ashore
