In Athens, the capital of Greece and one of the world’s oldest cities we begin our Greece teen trip! From our hotel located in the historic Plaka district, we spend two days experiencing the culture of the city by visiting the Parthenon, Acropolis, and Agora Central Market. Led by a local guide, we walk through more modern neighborhoods for spectacular views of the Aegean Sea.
We head into the Peloponnesian Mountains for the camping and adventure part of Bold Earth's Greece teen tour. Stationed at an idyllic campsite for the duration of these adventures, our time in the Peloponnese is pure paradise! We even have our own private waterfall within walking distance. On our first day in the Peloponnese, we begin our whitewater rafting by first rappelling into our rafts on the beautiful Alfios River. We then continue our rafting adventure, enjoying the beautiful scenery and turquoise water. Next, we spend a day hiking through the Lousios River past pristine waterfalls. On our hike day, we explore ancient monasteries with a local Greek guide. We wrap up our hike and our time in the Peloponese by zip-lining across the river and having one final bonfire at our campsite. On our way to Lefkada, we stop at Olympia, the birth place of the Olympic Games, to explore and learn about this iconic area.
In the gorgeous Ionian Sea, we explore the crystal blue water and pristine white pebble beaches that make this area spectacular. Highlights include two days of SCUBA in the calm, clear, blue water of Greek's Ionian Sea! We start off in a pool to go over the basics, then enjoy diving in the calm, clear bay. Greece’s summer weather is perfect for adventure activities! Mornings are spent in the water - scuba diving, windsurfing and sea kayaking. No experience is required as Bold Earth teaches the necessary skills. Afternoons are spent on the beach and exploring the beautiful towns that make the Greek Isles famous. We take a boat to a pristine beach and dedicate a few hours to cleaning up this area and keeping it beautiful. We enjoy a gorgeous sunset, sleep under the stars, and wake up to our own private paradise. In the morning we head back to Lefkada to prepare for the final chapter of our trip. The end of Greek Odyssey brings us back to Athens for a final day of city culture and a celebration dinner!
Time between trips is fully supervised and included at no additional cost.

My Greek Odyssey summer was a great experience and I enjoyed it a whole lot. Bold Earth was way different from all the camps I've been to since it is a smaller group and more adventurous, which I really enjoyed. I hope to go on another Bold Earth trip next summer!
