9 Day Itinerary
Day 1: Mykonos (Day 1 and 2)
We depart Athens early and arrive in Mykonos on the first day. A genuine slice of paradise, Mykonos will impress you with its whitewashed buildings that seem to drop into the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea. Spend the days soaking up the sun on the pristine white sands at Paradise Beach or navigating the winding streets of Mykonos Town for some retail therapy. Watching the sunset over the famous windmills before heading out to enjoy the island’s incredible nightlife is a must!
Day 2: Paros (Days 3 and 4)
Gorgeous and picturesque, there’s no better way to describe this beautiful chilled out island filled to the brim with beautiful sights and perfect beaches for you to laze the day away. Get on board our optional sailing trip around the islands of Paros and Antiparos where we’ll visit Paros’s most spectacular swim stops and have a scrumptious onboard BBQ! Take the chance to immerse yourself in Greek culture with our traditional food, drink, and plate smashing experience. Finish off the days with a perfect night soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of Parikia town after dark.
Day 3: Santorini (Days 5 and 6)
Arguably the most beautiful of the Cyclades Islands, Santorini features a world-famous sunset, great food, amazing wines and an exciting nightlife. It is a firm favourite amongst Busabouters for a reason! Explore the whitewashed winding streets, discover the blue-domed churches and spend some relaxing time at the red and black sand beaches under a pristine blue sky. Learn more about Santorini on our optional Sun-tour-ini bus trip covering the highlights of this incredible island including a sunset picnic in Oia, where all #instadreams come true as the sun slowly fades into the horizon.
Day 4: Ios (Days 7 and 8)
Perfect beaches, exciting water sports and the best nightlife you could ask for, that’s Ios in a nutshell. Chill out to some top tunes by the pool, walk the sun-kissed streets of Ios Town or head out to explore some of the white sandy beaches and secret hidden coves that dot the island’s coast. Celebrate the nights with a cocktail or two as you bar-hop your way around town. Ios is the perfect place to end your trip to the Cyclades before heading back to Athens!
Day 5: Back to Athens
It's time to leave the island life behind and depart for the mainland!
