2020 Greece -Cyclades and Crete -Tour
Sep 16, 2020 to Oct 02, 2020
There is nothing quite like having your own yacht to explore the islands of the Cyclades.
M/y Elena is very much a private luxury adventure for 12 Members - all being cared for
by a wonderful crew of 5. Note: September sea temperatures of the Aegean are delightful.
Once aboard m/y Elena our voyage takes us to more than a dozen islands scattered across the beautiful Aegean.
Our journey is weather dependant, in that for your comfort and
safety, we avoid all areas where winds exceed “Force Four ”(over 20mph.) Hence route changes are possible.
Immediately upon our return to Athens we fly to Heraklion, Crete.
In Crete there are so many historical sites and civilizations to explore.
Our journey takes us all along the northern coast of Crete to the ancient city of Chania,
where we view one of the loveliest Venetian style lighthouses.
