School of freediving and yoga FreeBalance invites you on an unforgettable yacht cruise around the Greek Islands!
Southern Islands of the Ionian Sea October 2022
The most beautiful bays of the Ionian Sea, the charm of ancient Greek cities, complete relaxation on board a beautiful comfortable yacht and, of course, freediving are waiting for you!
The gentle sun, the lapping of waves on the side of the boat and amazing landscapes creat a wonderful opportunity to get away from the bustle of the big world. Our program is designed for one week. During this time we will visit several beautiful Greek islands. We will wander along the streets of ancient towns, merging into the history, visit the ruins of ancient temples and never tire of admiring divinely beautiful sunsets in picturesque bays.
Our route will start on the island of Zakynthos (Zante) Four large islands: KEFALONIA, LEVKADA, ITHACA AND ZAKYNTHOS form a water area which is completely protected from the waves of the open sea.
Day 1. Check-in on a yacht in the marina of Zakynthos after 16.00 This island has become known to the whole world thanks to the bay of Navajo, which is replicated in billions of postcards and photographs. Although, of course, Zakynthos, which is also called ZANTE and the Flower of the east, can give the traveler immeasurably more. We will spend the night in the bay, not far from the Blue Caves, and in the morning without any hesitation we will go swimming to these same caves. The first dinner and welcome cocktail is in the evening on the yacht. Acquaintance of cruise participants with each other and with the yacht.
Day 2. Bay of Navajo and crossing to Kefalonia. This morning we will swim at the Blue Caves and go to the most beautiful bay of the Ionian Sea. For the night we will anchor off the coast of Kefalonia, where the rocks form bizarre shapes, similar to the columns in the temples of Luxor.
Day 3. In the afternoon - we will swim and then go to the cozy port of Agia - Efimia. From here it is within easy reach of the famous caves of Kefalonia: Melissani and Dragorati.
Day 4. Myrtos beach. Asos. Venetian fortress. Not far from Asos there is perhaps one of the most famous beaches of Kefalonia, Myrtos. We will swim in its turquoise waters, then we will come to Asos and climb the Venetian fortress, which they once wanted to make the main city of the island.
Day 5. Nidri (Levkada) and overnight on the island of Meganisi. We will depart from Asos immediately after breakfast to visit the island of Lefkada and Meganisi. Here among the small islands, we will spend an unforgettable evening overlooking the magical sunset.
Day 6. Transfer to Ithaca. Hike to the palace of Odysseus. Kefalonia and Ithaca are separated by a narrow strait. This day we will be able to penetrate one of the countless caves of Kefalonia. Perhaps it was here where Calypso held Odysseus. And in the afternoon we will have a walk to the stones, which probably saw Odysseus himself. After all, once his palace was built from precisely these stones. Penelope wove yarn here, and he returned here after twenty years of wandering.
