Greek islands sailing & climbing vacation

Environment

We approach sailing as an ideal way of transportation, benefitting from the wind power as much as possible and limiting the usage of engines just to the entrance and exit from harbours. For us, sailing around the Greek islands in a small sailing skipper boat is the best way of exploring the islands in opposition to bigger cruise boats or high-speed oil-fuelled boats. The feeling of deep silence when deploying the sails and being pushed forward just by the wind is one of the most intense moments of the trip.

Additionally, sailing is an activity that requires extreme caution in waste management and organisation in the boat. We pay special attention to this matter by instructing our travelers on plastic bottle collection and recycling and toilet waste management. Also as part of our daily routing when visiting remote beaches and areas around Astypealea we encourage our travelers to collect any rubbish we encounter as to contribute as much as possible to the improvement of the local environment.

Community

Tourism in Greece is developing in multiple directions, sometimes focused on mass-tourism and big cruise boats that pass by the islands and contribute in a negative way just developing the harbour areas of the main and biggest islands while unbalancing and shifting the development away from smaller places and inland towns.

Our main contribution with this tour consists in putting the focus on a different way of traveling the Greek islands, by stopping in more rare and un-visited places like the islands or Patmos and Kampos and encouraging our travelers to go on treks to explore the islands, passing by the smaller inland village, where the ways of life are completely away from tourism.

Apart from our contribution with the design of the itinerary we also make great efforts when selecting our staff and collaborators. We always choose working with local people, if possible from the islands we visit. Kalymnos is nowadays a very popular, world-known climbing destination and many international companies and instructors are based on the island. While partnering with locals we contribute to the promotion of rock climbing as a tool for local development for local communities who live in the island.
