The Saronic Gulf opposite of Athens is one of Greece's most undervalued destinations. Beyond the better known attractions such as Aegina, Poros, Hydra, and Epidauros, few people visit anything else.
Deeply intertwined with ancient history and legends, the Saronic Gulf is an area full of unspoiled nature, hidden archeological remains, charming villages and even has an active volcano (currently dormant) right in front of Aegina: the Methana peninsula with its lush, green mountains and hidden geologic treasures such as fumaroles and hot springs famous since antiquity.
On this tour which is available throughout the year at dates on request for small groups of up to 6 people, you will get to know some of the lesser known, but gorgeous destinations of this area, accompanied by an expert geologist or photographer from our team. It is a perfect addition to your visit to Athens or Greece in general and can be easily combined with your own program:
Starting in Athens, we pass the famous Corinth channel where a photo stop is almost mandatory, and soon reach the area of Epidaurus where we should visit the most famous and most beautiful of all Ancient Greek theaters. We then take you to the Methana peninsula where we spend two nights. The tour ends in Poros Island, one of the most picturesque of Greece and from here you can extend your visit of the Saronic Gulf (ferry connections to Aegina, Hydra etc) or return to Piraeus and on to other islands or back to town or the airport.
Truly a tour off the beaten track! meer info

The Mediterranean island of Milos is one of the most beautiful and photogenic islands of Greece.
Known as the birthplace of Venus de Milo, one of the most famous Greek statues from the classical era, Milos is exceptionally rich in mineral deposits, boasting a particular scenic beauty that leaves visitors breathless. It also offers a great number of superb and uncrowded beaches, as well as spectacular coastal cliffs with multicolored volcanic rocks of all types on display. Luckily, its millennia-old history as an economic base in mining has prevented it from becoming a mass tourism destination. The island is ideal for both active and laidback holidays. You’ll also be happy to know that traditional Greek hospitality is still very much alive here.

Geologically, Milos is a wonderland packed with picture-book volcanic features. Embark on a series of different excursions by land and sea to explore the faceted volcanic history of the island through its rocks, guided by a trained geologist. No previous knowledge of geology is required, and the excursions represent a vibrant mix of hiking, sailing, observation, and holidaymaking. Great local Aegean cuisine and good company round out this tour, which can also be combined with our study and walking tour on Santorini. meer info

NEW expedition 4-8 May 2020 - 2 nights on Krakatau!
This is your chance to get to know one of the most famous volcanoes with an expert and witness the dramatic changes from the Dec 2018 collapse.

During this physically easy expedition, you have the unique opportunity to experience one of the world's most beautiful and powerful volcanoes. The exact itinerary varies from tour date to tour date, but we usually spend between 2 and 4 full days and nights on and around the volcanic islands of Krakatau. Depending on the intensity of Anak Krakatau's activity we either camp on the beach of the active volcano itself or make our camp on one of the surrounding islands. Watching Krakatau's fireworks when it is active is truly spectacular and we will do so from various viewpoints both on Anak Krakatau itself and the neighboring islands, using the chartered boat we have at our disposal.

Even when there is no eruption, the active volcano of Anak Krakatau with itslunar landscapes, fumaroles and frozen lava flows, and the surrounding islands' spectacular pumice cliffs on what remains of the island complex destroyed in 1883, is well worth exploring. Your expedition leader and tour guide Andi has been closely watching this volcano's activity and changes over the past 15 years and will happily share his geological knowledge with you!

Hot springs and beautiful coral reefs and other natural highlights of this unique bioreserve make this a perfect trip if you like a volcano extension out from Jakarta. The tasty camping food with fresh fish and overall excellent organization by our experienced local crew round up this trip into an unforgettable travel adventure. meer info
