Let the Aegean winds take you on a sailing journey where you will paddle over huge shipwrecks, hike the most captivating hiking paths, reach the pick of an islet from where you’ll witness the sun sinking in the sea and moor in remote islands sleeping under gleaming stars in storytelling coves. Meet the Cycladic wilderness and explore its magnificence by relying on Aktaia to take you to her favorite well-kept secret locations. Discover hidden idyllic beaches, swim in the clearest waters of reclusive bays, explore the sea bottom by snorkeling along magical coasts and hear your voice echoing in sea caves sculpted impressively by mother nature.
