ATHOS CRUISE 1

Cruise program

As we depart from Ormos Panagias to Mount Athos cruise, the schedule is announced from the speakers and there is an update on board. The route to the first monastery lasts 2.5 to 3 hours during which you can enjoy the cruise looking at both the Sithonia Peninsula and the Mount Athos one embracing the Siggitikos bay. If you have a look at the blue sea, you can spot dolphins which usually accompany us on our trip and at the same time you will learn about the history of Mount Athos through the guided tour which is head on board from the speakers.

The way the Ormos Panagias to Mount Athos cruise takes place depends on the weather conditions. If the weather conditions are favorable, then the trip departs from Ormos Panagias heading to H.M. Saint Pavlos which is situated at the foot of Mountain Athos which towers up to 2.033m., in the southern part of Mount Athos. If the weather conditions are not favorable, then the trip begins and our first destination is H.M. Dochiariou.

Xiropotamou, the central port of Mount Athos Daphni, H.M. Simonos Petras, H.M. Grigoriou, H.M. Dionysiou and finally in the shadow of Mountain Athos which towers up to 2033m. H.M. Saint Pavlou.
