Bustling with adventure, Greece is brilliant for walking and trekking. You can hike up volcanoes, rock climb along the coastlines and head up towards villages hidden in the mountains for a taste of the real local life. What's more, Greeces picturesque islands boast some of the best parties in the Mediterranean and its fresh local cuisine and cloudy ouzo will leave you saying ‘opa!’and craving for more.

With hundreds of tiny beaches, horseshoe harbours and pocket-sized fishing villages, Greece may be one of the best countries in the world for sailing. Dive into the stunning clear waters, snorkel through caves, relax on deck with delicious fresh food and carve out memories that will last a lifetime.

Fact Sheet

When To Travel

It is safe to say that the best time to visit Greece is spring and early summer (mid-April to mid-June) or autumn (September to mid-October). The summer months (July - August) can be horrendously hot (heat waves of 100°F/+40C are routine), crowds of tourists ruin the experience and inflated prices will hurt the wallet.

Visa

At the time of writing, you do not need a Visa to visit Greece if you are from the UK or US for less than 90 days. However, please check the full guidelines on the embassy website before you travel. For UK citizens this is the Foreign Travel Advice section of https://www.gov.uk

Health

Some vaccinations may be required depending on where you are going and what you’re doing. Therefore, it is important to check with your GP before travelling. Your GP will be able to provide you with all up to date travel information. Travel insurance is mandatory for all our trips so please ensure you show evidence of your policy before travelling. We recommend that you carry a First Aid kit and hand sanitizers / antibacterial wipes as well as any personal medical requirements.

Travel Restrictions & Covid-19

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel to Greece, except for the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos, Corfu and Crete, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

For those travelling to the islands listed above, you may be required to undergo a random mandatory health check and take a rapid COVID-19 test on arrival.

Travellers must have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result. The test must be taken within 72 hours before arrival in Greece. The test result should be in English and must match the name and passport/national ID number of the traveler.
