Most travellers feel lucky to get a quick ferry stop at an island like Santorini. But small samples aren’t the Greek Island Hopping style. With 3-nights in Mykonos, Ios, Santorini & Athens, you’ll have plenty of time to explore charming fishing villages, shops, volcanoes & spotless beaches, getting deep beyond the ouzo and the olives and the ancient statues. You’ll be safe in the hands of your professional Trip Manager, who knows the islands of Greece better than you know the hairs on your toes.

Tick off your bucket list as we strop to check out the best of what each destination has to offer. Think to explore the Cycladic-style houses on idyllic Mykonos, ogling the spectacular views boated by the tiny town of Fira and throwing back ouzo on hedonistic Ios. Treat yourself to a handful of our Me Time activities on top of everything that’s included. Turn up the heat with a boat trip to the core of a volcano, explore the ancient citadel of Acropolis with a knowledgeable local guide and soak up one of the glorious sunsets the islands are famous for from the quaint village of Oia.

Day 1

ATHENS

Hello island lovers! Welcome to Greece, and welcome to the best holiday of your life. It's a big call to make on day 1, but we're making it! Take a minute to unpack in settle in to our hotel before we meet up this evening. First your Trip Manager will give you the rundown of what to expect over the next 10 days, then you'll have free time to explore the local area and find yourself some dinner.

Day 2

ATHENS

With no time to waste, we'll start our island hopping adventures today with our first destination: Mykonos.


MYKONOS

Let's do this! Two nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love. Tonight, you'll have the option to join an exploration of Mykonos by night on a locally guided walking tour of the town's cobbled streets.

Day 3

MYKONOS

Windmills; cafes overflowing with olives, feta and tzatziki; storybook streets - and that's before you've even taken a dip in the ocean! The day is yours to soak up the sunshine and play in the sea.

Day 4

MYKONOS

Windmills; cafes overflowing with olives, feta and tzatziki; storybook streets - and that's before you've even taken a dip in the ocean! The day is yours to soak up the sunshine and play in the sea.

Day 5

PAROS

Another day, another Greek Island delight. Hold tight – today we’re off for a Paros sailing adventure. Crystal clear Aegean waters, here we come.

Day 6

PAROS

Paros, it's been magical – but today we're taking to the seas again, this time in search of Greece's most insta-famous island: Santorini.


SANTORINI

Santorini, we have arrived! Tonight you'll have the chance to explore this magical Island and roam the cobbled streets.

Day 7

SANTORINI

Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini won't explore itself. Today is your day to take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, or roam and explore. You can even opt to take an incredible volcano cruise around Santorini, starting with a visit to Oia and complete with crater hike and a soak in local hot springs.

Day 8

SANTORINI

A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery for our final Island night. And thankfully, there will be no change in the good vibes or the time spent ocean side.


IOS

We'll join together for an included dinner tonight, with another free evening on the cards afterwards.

Day 9

IOS

Our final Island day, and your last chance to soak up the Greek sun and frolic in the sand without a care in the world. Now is your chance to get some adrenaline in with a speedboat safari, or take a leisurely stroll around the pretty village of Ios Chora and enjoy some stuffed zucchini flowers or baked feta drizzled with olive oil at a local cafe. It's a free evening tonight, so you're going to need the fuel if you want to hit the party scene of Hora until the break of dawn.

Day 10

IOS

While choking back the tears and waving a sad goodbye to the dreamy islands of Greece, try to think positive thoughts: we have a boat ride to enjoy this morning, as well as one more night together in the city of Athens.


ATHENS

Ready for one more dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together? We'll soak up the last rays of the Mediterranean sun this afternoon before an optional farewell dinner together.

Day 11

ATHENS

And just like that, it's time for the goodbyes. As sad as they are, at least you have the memories. And another 300 Contiki trips to jump aboard! Make the most of your last free breakfast before you kick on to your next port of call and for those of you that have the time, there's an optional city tour and Acropolis visit.
