Do you love water? Would you like to swim in cerulean, crystal clear waters? Sunbathe in interminable beaches with fine golden sand? Go surfing, diving, parasailing or kitesurfing? Maybe you are more into the mountain kind of sports: How about cave-exploration, rock or mountain climbing, then?

Walking in some seriously scenic routes? Embarking on a jeep safari; discovering the secrets of the planet’s healthiest diet; going on a wine-or olive oil- tasting tour; feasting in traditional panigiria; or attending open air concerts? Maybe even, just hanging out with the locals in a “kafeneio”, drinking raki and nibbling on black olives and matured gruyere?
