Greek Island Trip! - May 2022

NAXOS - GREEK ISLAND TRIP!
• Dates: May 21 - 30, 2022 (10-days)
• Cost: $2500 (per person, excluding flights)

• Details: https://globe-drifters.com/trip/greek-naxos-staycation-10-or-15-days/

This trip is a “slowcation” and you can read more about it here: https://globe-drifters.com/extended-stay-trips/

Below is some information. If you have any questions, you can email [masked].

Stay in a 5-star boutique hotel located in the peaceful countryside of Naxos, but just a 15 minute walk into the island’s old town (with a grocery store and plenty of cafes & restaurants) and a 5 minute walk to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Aegean Sea (with umbrella and beach chair rental available!).

There are some really amazing activities planned during the trip such as: a private catamaran around some of the more far-flung and less-traveled Cycladian islands, a private culinary experience at a local family’s farm, and a movie at the local, open-air cinema!

Naxos is the biggest island in the Cyclades and it is a transportation hub for getting to many of the more well-known islands like Paros, Mykonos and Santorini which are all affordable & reachable by ferry with Paros taking only 30 minutes by ferry, Mykonos 45 minutes by ferry and to Santorini 1 hour and 30 minutes allowing for day trips to many of the islands.
