The idea of hopping from one stunning Greek island to another is undoubtedly very appealing.

It is definitely on many people’s bucket lists. To get the most from this adventure, you will need to spend some time researching and planning your itinerary. There are literally hundreds of islands to choose from, and you will need to consider the logistics of getting from one to another. Sailing is the most obvious answer, whether on your own boat or as part of a guided tour.


Choosing Your Island Hopping Route

So as not to waste too much time travelling, it is best to choose a specific group of islands. For example, you could try the Dodecanese and discover Rhodes, Kos and Kalymnos. This will be ideal if you enjoy history as these islands have been inhabited by many different civilizations, who have all left their mark.

If you are looking for traditional whitewashed houses combined with luxury and renowned nightlife, the Cycladic islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Syros should be on the agenda. Perhaps you are looking to escape the more well-known tourist spots, and the Sporades certainly fit the bill.

The secluded beaches of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos are not to be missed.

Theme Based Island Hopping

If you have a particular interest or hobby, you can find an island-hopping trip to suit your preferences. For example, you can visit islands that are known for their delicious Greek wine and food. Or discover ancient history and the tales of Greek gods and heroes.

Don’t forget to factor in the weather, as some of the more remote islands are inaccessible during the winter months. Try not to cram in too many islands, especially if you have limited time. It can be better to get to know just three or four islands as you fulfil your bucket list dream!
