Mount Athos Cruise
Mount Athos Cruise - estimate duration 07.00- 19:00
The first part of the program begins with a transfer by bus to Ormos Panagias, situated in N-E of the Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki. From this seaport, we will go on with our journey, sailing towards the south of the Athos Peninsula, until we reach the south limit, where the highest point is 2.033 m. From here we shall sail north, along the western coast.
You will be able to see from a close distance (from the boat), the mysterious and miraculous place which has been for centuries the center of Orthodoxy and you will find out new information about the history of Mount Athos and 8 of its monasteries. After approximately 4 hours we shall stop in Ouranoupoli, where you will have enough free time to discover the village, to take a walk, to shop or to have a traditional meal in one of the taverns there.
On our way, back from Ouranoupoli, the boat will sail to the west, to Ormos Panagias a where the bus will be waiting for your drive back to the hotel. Note: No assistant on the bus to the boat.
