Ancient Greek myths come to life during this River Acheron valley tour. You'll journey to the beautiful fishing village of Ammoudia for a cruise up this legendary river – known as the Styx in classical times – and on to village of Gliki and the famous Acheron Springs.
The islands of Paxos and Antipaxos may be small but their beauty is big and bold. You'll sail over from Parga to get to know these Ionian gems on this full day cruise. There'll be sea grottoes, charming seaside towns and coastal views by the bucket-load.Leaving the port of Parga, we'll set sail onboard the Captain Hook into the open seas towards Antipaxos. It's the smaller of the two islands – it has just 120 residents – and its long stretches of white sand and Caribbean feel make it feel like it's one in a dozen. After some relaxing on deck and swimming, we'll hit the seas once more along the west coast, famous for the Blue Caves.Grab the chance to swim inside one of these atmospheric sea grottoes before heading to Gaios, the capital Paxos. With its Venetian-style mansions facing the islet of St Nicholas, it's a charmer. You'll have free time to roam around its narrow lanes or have lunch overlooking the boats before returning to Parga.
When your name means ‘middle of the sky', you're no ordinary tourist attraction.

Meteora's ancient monasteries sit on top of sandstone towers carved out by Mother Nature. Originally, there were 24 built, of which six remain active. You'll visit the largest, the Monastery of Great Meteoron, for a guided tour. At more than 600m, it's also the highest. Its frescoes are alone worth the trip up.You'll also have the chance to takes come pics of the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, which starred in the Bond movie For Your Eyes Only.

If you're in search of glittering azure waters and a healthy dose of Greek culture then a boat trip to Antipaxos and Paxos from Parga is a must-do. These islands might be small in terms of size, but they pack a punch with scenery and laidback Mediterranean feel.We'll sail over to the sleepy island of Antipaxos first, where your captain will drop anchor off the coast for time to swim or just sit and relax on board. We'll also pit stop by the Blue Caves on route to livelier Paxos.Peace and quiet reigns over Paxos, even in the town of Gaios, the island's capital. Here, you'll have some free time to choose a taverna for lunch, explore the town and its shops or more sunbathing and swimming – the ideal way to spend a day in the Greek islands.
