Ionian Yacht Rally Sailing Tour

07 September to 17 September 2019

18 September to 28 September 2019

From $4,825 per person

  • West of mainland Greece, lie the Ionian Islands. Unique to Greece for their luscious green, mountainous islands dotted with olive groves, Byzantine remains and ancient fishing villages. Spend 10 days sailing aboard one of a small flotilla of hand-picked yachts and experience this ancient, welcoming paradise from its best angle – the water. Join the thousands of travellers who have fallen in love with these gorgeous islands steeped in culture.
    Cruise in company and along the way your hosts will organise fun races, optional excursions and delicious dinners where you can socialise with other crews, taste local cuisine and experience the Ionian islands like a local.

    There are plenty of ‘Leisure days’ where you can explore or step ashore to enjoy dinner at a taverna on your own. It really is sailing made easy! All you need to do is grab some friends and choose a yacht from our fleet, or book a cabin and join other like-minded adventurers.
