Description

Enjoy breathtaking moments on board as you explore the entire southwestern slope of Mount Athos, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The vastness of the environment, the human might that managed to erect all these beautiful buildings over a thousand years ago, monasteries like castles, skites like communities, and arsanades like ports. 

The 33.5m motor yacht was launched in 2004 at the Makedonia Shipyard. This steel-hulled displacement vessel can accommodate 300 guests. It is distinguished for its modern interiors and sleek external lines. Guests will be wowed by the luxury comfort on board.

Our three-hour journey begins by passing by the final modest dwellings of Ouranoupoli and the Mount Athos boundaries that divide the outer world from the realm of monastic life. You will get the opportunity to appreciate the grandeur of Mount Athos' southwest peninsula. The remoteness of the environment, in particular, the human might that managed to construct all of these amazing buildings, monasteries, skites, and arsanades over a thousand years ago. 

The yacht departs Ouranoupolis at 14:00 everyday towards Mount Athos' southwest side, with embarkation beginning at 1:30. It is best if tourists arrive half an hour before departure.

According to the legislation, the ship must stop 500 meters from the coast after reaching an agreement. "Fathers" (monks) arrive, carrying sacred relics, and people reverently venerate them. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity because women are not authorized to visit the territory ("state") to worship. 

During the Ouranoupolis to Mount Athos itinerary, you will be able to explore 8 monasteries:

• Holy Monastery of Dochiariou


• Holy Monastery Xenophontos


• Holy Monaster Panteleimonos (Russian Monastery)


• Holy Monastery Xiropotamou


• The principal port of Mount Athos Daphni


• Holy Monastery Simonos Petras


• Holy Monastery Grigoriou


• Holy Monastery Saint Pavlou 



Following that, you'll witness the New Skite and Saint Anna's Skite. - Finally, you might get to see the daily shows that the dolphins put on for us during our stay. The sail from Ouranoupolis to Mount Athos is the most well-known in Halkidiki. 

The majority of passengers choose tour guides who speak several languages (for example, Greek, English, German, and Romanian). The Captain, who is knowledgeable about the monks' lives, leads tours in Greek. 

Every member of our crew has undergone lectures on the lifesaving equipment and fire extinguishing system on board. Furthermore, every week, fire emergency exercises, man at sea, sea influx into the ship, and ship abandonment are arranged. In addition, all of our crew members are trained and kept up to date in first aid. Our firm routinely examines the sailor's knowledge to ensure the safety of the passengers. They are familiar with the waterways and the local characteristics of the weather, waves, and sea bottom.
