Sporades Itinerary

A hidden paradise in North Greece

Why Choose a Sporades Flotilla Holiday?

The Sporades Itinerary is a challenging one and it is ideal for those who have a level 3 in sailing. You will find open waters and fresh breezes accompany you to unspoiled destinations. You can stop to the fantastic beaches and soak up the sun. All the Sporades Islands are ideal for explorers. If you have already experienced the delights of sailing in the Ionian and the Saronic Gulf, why not try one of our more challenging sailing areas, the Northern Sporades?

Sporades Itinerary

With fresh breezes, which strengthen in the summer Meltemi winds, the open waters of the Sporades offer excellent sailing. The end of each day on the water rewards you with a wonderful mix of cosmopolitan towns on your island route, such as Skiathos and Skopelos as well as sleepy little hamlets like Steni Vala and deserted island bays such as Kyra Panagia.

For culture vultures, you can visit some of the locations for the hit movie “Mamma Mia” or anchor up and relax on one of the stunning sandy beaches.

The contrasting Pelion route explores the Gulf of Volos and its islands as well as the northern part of Evvia island. Paleo Trikeri and “Donkey” island are must see destinations as you explore the crystal clear waters on your Sporades sailing holiday.


We suggest two routes. The Sporades Route and the Pelion Route.
