Discover the stunning beauty of the Greek Islands on this short swims holiday in and around the islands which make up the Cyclades. This adventure is based on the original SwimTrek trip which has been running since 2003, however, the shorter daily swim distances are designed for those who are relatively new to open water swimming holidays or simply enjoy a little more time out of the water.
From our base of Schinoussa in the heart of the archipelago, we have the opportunity to island-hop around the Cyclades, discovering their isolated beaches and breathtaking coastlines, as well as enjoying several crossings. Our beautifully remote Greek adventure will consist of exploring the unspoilt islands of Schinoussa, Fidousa, Iraklia, Kato Koufonisi and Keros.
With a combination of short crossings between islands and beautiful coastal swims, you’ll have the chance to explore the diverse scenery which exists in this unique island group. From sea caves and tunnels, to arches and islets, there is no shortage of beautiful topography and landscapes to explore, above and below the water.
