Day 1 Athens

Your 9-day dream trip starts in Athens 5 star Hotel Royal Olympic (or similar). Enjoy Athens on a city tour or on a stroll through the nearby Plaka. Small shops, cozy cafes and restaurants are waiting for you. The nearby Acropolis is always worth a visit. We spend the evening together on the roof garden of the hotel.

Day 2 Nafplio

After breakfast we drive to Nafplio, past the Corinth Canal, where we make a short stop.
Enjoy the time walking around the romantic little streets of the beautiful old port city and former capital of Greece.
In the evening we will be greeted by the crew of Running on Waves with a welcome cocktail.

From now on time passes by more slowly – your holiday at sea begins!



Day 3 Sailing day

Elafonisos is one of the most beautiful greek islands. The island has picturesque white beaches with turquoise waters and the cozy taverns in the harbor invite you for a coffee or wine.

Kythira has been largely spared by mass tourism and has thus preserved it’s Greek tradition.

Monemvasia means “an entrance” because there is only one way to reach the city, which made it a natural fortress in the Middle Ages.

Day 4 Pylos

In the morning we reach Pylos. Now it’s off to the first golf course, the famous Greek Golf Club, Costa Navarino. Today we play the beautiful Dunes Course, which was designed by the German golf legend, Bernhard Langer. Because our ship stays overnight in the harbor of Pylos, you can explore the small harbor town with its steep streets and the great atmosphere. In the evening there is a common meal in a typical harbor tavern.


Day 5 Pylos

Today we play the bay course of the Costa Navarino Golf Club, which is located directly on the sea and offers breathtaking views of the bay of Pylos or Navarino.

Day 6 Sailing day

Today you can let the soul replenish on board. Sailing is on the program. You can relax in the hot tub and enjoy a cool drink at the Ocean Bar.

Individual exploration tours:
Elefonisos, Kythira or Monemvasia



Day 7 Sailing day

Our next day at sea consists again of sailing, regeneration and recreation. You can do activities on board such as mast climbing, explore the engine room or even steer the ship.

Individual exploration tours:
Elefonisos, Kythira or Monemvasia

Day 8 Crete

Today we have to say goodbye to our wonderfully caring and warm crew. It goes on to the next golf course, the Crete Golf Club. The challenging mountainous course with its hilly fairways, stands in contrast to the previously played courts. After golfing it goes to the 5 star Crete Golf Club Hotel (or similar). The last evening of the trip will be celebrated with a farewell dinner.


Day 9 Crete

After breakfast we will head to Heraklion airport, full of melancholy and great travel experiences, to fly home from there. If you have extended your holiday individually, enjoy a few more days on site.
