Full description
Following early morning pick-up from central locations in Thessaloniki, travel by luxury air-conditioned bus to Ormos Panagias in the northeast of the Sithonia Peninsula in Halkidiki.

Climb aboard a boat and sail towards the south of the Athos Peninsula, soaring to a maximum altitude of 2,033 meters. Continue north along the western coast and admire the mysterious and miraculous mountain that has been the center of Eastern Orthodox monasticism for centuries. 

At the end of an approximately 4-hour cruise, stop in the village of Ouranoupoli. Enjoy some free time to discover the beautiful village at your own pace. Go for a stroll, browse the little shops or eat a traditional meal at one of the best taverns in the village.

Return to Ormos Panagias as you are treated to a wonderful program of traditional dances and Greek music. Arrive in Ormos Panagias at around 17:00, where the bus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel in Thessaloniki.
