Folegandros, is a small (only 12km long), quiet and authentic island. Chora (or Folegandros), the island capital, is perched on a cliff-top. This is one of the most appealing villages in the Cyclades with its white washed houses and paved streets. This is one of the oldest traditional medieval towns in the Cyclades; the town is closed to car and motorcycle traffic, has a unique centre of three squares in a row, with trees under which to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in a quiet, romantic atmosphere.
On arrival in Folegandros Harbour, look for a sign of the hotel to meet your driver. You will then be transferred to your hotel.
Day 4: Folegandros (B)
Folegandros, with its delightful Chora which is closed to motor traffic, and a permanent population of less than 800 residents, is an idyllic and peaceful counterpoint to some of the other islands in the Mediterranean. With many beaches that can only be accessed by foot or boat, Folegandros is a wonderful place to forget about work and relax in charming serenity.
Day 5: Folegandros – Santorini (B)
After breakfast, make your way to the harbour. Embark on the fast ferry to Santorini.
No other place in the world resembles this unique Cycladic island, believed by some to be the legendary lost continent of Atlantis which was swallowed by the sea when the volcano erupted. Santorini is known worldwide for its unique views and colourful sunsets.
On arrival you will be transferred to your hotel.
Day 6: Santorini (B)
The beautiful island of Santorini was created by the eruption of a super volcano called Thera in ancient antiquity. This eruption has been estimated to have ejected 100 cubic kilometres of material, making it one of the four most powerful eruptions of historic times. The concentric shaped islands that remain have created one of the most perfect natural harbours in the world, so it is no surprise that water activities are so popular here. Whether partaking a sailing charter, relaxing on a beach, or taking advantage of the many spectacular viewpoints, Santorini is a delightful location to enjoy the Mediterranean. Famed for the beautiful sunsets, be sure to find a good vantage point as the day winds down.
