So many islands, so much choice!

As the Island Specialist, Olympic Holidays is the leading expert in arranging Greek island hopping holidays.  Choose from inspiring combinations in the Cyclades, Dodecanese, Aegean, Ionian and Sporades with a choice of ferry and catamaran sailings or flights between the islands.

Many guests love to make Athens their first destination to immerse themselves in a culture fix before hopping to nearby islands such as Andros and Aegina to relax in the sunshine.

Mix up the pace from island to island – Rhodes, Symi and Kos are popular hops with sun, sea, sand and watersports for all, while the Mamma Mia! islands of Skiathos and Skopelos offer golden beaches, pine forest walks and lovely towns to explore before a more laid-back hop to Alonissos.

Romantics can head to Santorini before partying on Mykonos and hop to Naxos which boasts stunning beaches and the main town with pretty white-washed buildings, restaurants, cafes and bars.

And our island hopping list goes on – Crete and Paros make an alluring hop or consider Corfu to Sivota and Lefkas to combine historic towns and beach fun for all the family. Kalymnos, Karpathos, Leros, Samos, Thessaloniki and Zante – take your pick from these wonderful islands!

If you prefer to stay on one island, choose two or three different resorts which reveal contrasting sides of an island such as Crete and Corfu.

So, contact the Olympic Holidays team with your ideas and dates and our expert team will explore the options. If you can’t see the combination you have in mind let the team check out your wish list.

Happy island hopping!
