Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Explore the motor vehicle free island of Hydra and admire the first view of the island on arrival by ferry.
  • Walk through pine clad Poros and swim from local beaches.
  • Savour the traditional Greek cuisine

Discover the enchanting allure of Hydra and Poros, nestled in close proximity to mainland Greece but a world apart from the bustling metropolis of Athens. Immerse yourself in this unique journey.

Ascend the rugged limestone hills of Hydra, overlooking the town, and follow the well-maintained trails that lead to monasteries and secluded beaches. Enjoy the rare privilege of wandering freely, accompanied only by the gentle presence of donkeys on the roads and pathways. Experience island exploration in serene tranquillity, as the absence of cars and noise creates a peaceful haven. Hydra, a laid-back island, serves as an artists' colony, boasting shops with exquisite and original jewellery and ceramics.

Embark on a brief boat voyage to the neighbouring verdant island of Poros, a striking contrast to Hydra. Traverse the quiet countryside, meandering through pine tree forests that culminate at the water's edge, providing breath-taking sea views. Explore historical gems such as the remains of Poseidon's Temple from the 6th century, the picturesque Russian Bay, and consider a short ferry ride to visit Epidauros on the Peloponnese mainland.

While these islands offer superb walking experiences in spring and autumn, they truly come alive in spring with vibrant floral displays that paint the landscape with an array of colours. Experience the beauty and tranquillity of these Greek islands.
