Bearing True South - Guided Adventure Tours in Greece


Home to hundreds of tiny islands and a few major ones, the gulf of Saronikos is famous for its crystal clear waters, pristine beaches and traditional island life and architecture. The area has also been the epicenter for piracy in the Aegean archipelago for the past 11 centuries. During the first part of this adventure, sailing goes far beyond mere island hopping. It is a unique traveling experience that allows you to immerse in the local culture, learn a thing or two about the history of the places you visit and explore way beyond each island’s marina. Sail along the Peloponnesian coast, visit three major islands along the way, explore superb swimming and snorkelling locations and savor amazing food. The second part of the adventure takes you deep into the mountains of Arcadia in the Peloponnese. From the mountainous and densely forested region of Arcadia to the relaxed and gorgeous seafront city of Nafplion and the ancient theatre of Epidaurus, you will experience the warm hospitality and local cuisine of the traditional settlements scattered across the Peloponnesian land. A multi activity adventure designed for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, that perfectly combines sailing in the Aegean Sea with exploring the very best of the Greek mainland.
