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 the Agora Central Market. Led by a local guide, we walk through more modern neighborhoods to Athens’ boardwalk 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. Rafting the Alfios River, we enjoy the whitewater and take the time to visit ancient Greek ruins along the shore. Next, we spend two days hiking through the Loussios River past historic ruins and pristine waterfalls. At the end of our hike, we zip-line across the river and stop at the Olympia archeological site, the birth place of the Olympic Games. Stationed at an idyllic campsite for the duration of these adventures, our time in the Peloponnese is pure paradise!
With more than 1,000 islands in the Aegean Sea, we explore the crystal blue water and white sand beaches that make this area spectacular. 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 whitewashed beaches and towns that make the Greek Isles famous. The final chapter of our journey brings us back to Athens, for a final day of city culture and a celebration dinner!
