Complete a range of stunning coastal swims and adventurous crossings between both inhabited and uninhabited islands
Relax and unwind aboard our very own SwimTrek yacht between swims
Discover the charm and beauty of the laid-back Greek culture and spectacular landscapes of Milos and its surrounding islands
This stunning Greek Island swimming holiday gives you the opportunity to explore the beautiful volcanic coastline of Milos. Featuring spectacular sea caves, tunnels and breathtaking arches, Milos and its surrounding islands are an open geological museum just waiting to be explored.
The beautiful views and incredible geology that you will experience on this trip, both above and below the water, are some of the most spectacular that exist anywhere in the Mediterranean. From the deep, clear waters of the Aegean Sea to the white sand beaches and imposing rock formations that define the islands in this corner of the world, Milos is an idyllic location for open water swimmers.
Accompanied by our very own SwimTrek yacht throughout the week, this trip features a combination of stunning coastal swims and adventurous crossings to both inhabited and uninhabited islands. Combined with the spectacular island landscapes and the laid-back Greek culture, this SwimTrek adventure embraces the sense of exploration and discovery that we live by every day.
This trip can also be offered as tailor-made experience. The date of travel and itinerary can be adjusted to suit you.

Due to popular demand, we've now added extra Milos Explorer trips in September and October 2021. This includes several dates where we'll be running two separate trips at the same time. Same great experience, just two opportunities to find the travel dates that suit you best!
Who is this trip for?
This trip is designed for swimmers who enjoy both coastal swims and crossings as well as exploring sea caves, tunnels and various arches on our coastal swims. The pace of swimming is often slightly slower than usual due to the abundance of underwater vistas and caves and tunnels to explore.
Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and are capable of completing the average daily swim distance of around 5km (split over a minimum of two swims) prior to the start of the trip.
