Legend has it Hercules fought the fearsome Nepean lion here. Retrace his footsteps through this patchwork of mountain paths, deep gorges and emerald valleys (and don’t worry, the closest you’ll come to fighting a feline is battling the urge to take a post-picnic catnap). See the stunning seascapes, picturesque villages and archaeological sites of the Cyclades Islands aboard your own private yacht. Mingle with the locals in tavernas and kafenia and become part of the ancient and ongoing Aegean Island culture. Famous for its picturesque whitewashed houses, traditional villages, superb food and wine and clear crystal waters, sailing in the Cyclades is a bucket-list-worthy experience; combine it with exploration by bike and it is truly unforgettable!
