what could a typical holiday in Greece at the beautiful Aegean look like? After breakfast go to one of the great sandy beaches. Enjoy the sun, the sea and a light breeze. Maybe you'll buy a natural sponge from one of the fishermen on the beach? Don't forget to bargain! The afternoon is a good time to get to know the countryside. Visit one of the many excavation sites and have dinner in one of the taverns. Gyros, souvlaki and ouzo taste even better here than at home. Every region, every island, every stretch of coast has its own character. They all have one thing in common, hearty Greeks! Explore the area by mountain bike and get in touch with the locals. They will show you the way to the Butterfly Valley on Rhodes or to the Samaia Gorge on Crete. And you are guaranteed to get a tip where to find the best souvenirs!
Rhodes is an island full of contrasts. Today the north of the island is more touristy and you have to search a little longer for tranquil corners. But the more one gets to the south, the more typical the country becomes. Pine forests, small mountain villages and impressive mountain massifs await you. Rhodes is an island with 320 days of sunshine, a wide range of cultural and entertainment possibilities.
The landscape of the largest Greek island is defined by a mountain range that runs across the island. Hiking and climbing in gorges and caves are on the agenda - perfect for nature lovers and active holidaymakers. In the mountains the inhabitants have kept the Cretan attitude to life. The north, on the other hand, is fully developed and has everything the holidaymaker needs. Hotels, beaches, shops, bars and restaurants. On Crete everybody finds what he needs to spend a wonderful holiday.
On this small island you will find everything you were looking forward to during your summer holiday in Greece. Kos-City enchants with its winding alleys and squares, a small harbour and many bars, restaurants and shops. In any case, enjoy the view from the Johanniter fortress over the harbour and the sea. In addition, the island has long beaches, lonely fishing villages, romantic bays and offers perfect conditions for water sports enthusiats.
The Greek islands have a Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot and dry, winters mild. The perfect travel time for your bathing holiday in Greece is therefore the months of June to October. In the summer months, the thermometer can climb to over 30 degrees, but a steady breeze from the sea provides refreshment. The water temperatures are 21 degrees and more from June onwards - perfect for a refreshing bath in the sea.
Active holidaymakers choose spring or autumn as their travel season. Then the temperatures are warm, but not too hot and therefore ideal to explore the island on foot or by mountain bike.
