Sporades Flotilla Holidays

If you have already experienced the delights of sailing in the Ionian and the Saronic Gulf, why not try one of our more challenging sailing areas, the Northern Sporades?

With fresh breezes, which strengthen in the summer Meltemi winds, the open waters of the Sporades offer excellent sailing. The end of each day on the water rewards you with a wonderful mix of cosmopolitan towns on our island route, such as Skiathos and Skopelos as well as sleepy little hamlets like Steni Vala and deserted island bays such as Kyra Panagia.

Choose From Two Contrasting Routes

Sporades and Pelion

For culture vultures you can visit some of the locations for the hit movie “Mamma Mia” or anchor up and relax on one of the stunning sandy beaches.

The contrasting Pelion route explores the Gulf of Volos and its islands as well as the northern part of Evvia island. Paleo Trikeri and “Donkey” island are must see destinations as you explore the crystal clear waters on your Sporades flotilla holiday.

The Weather

Reliable sunshine and good sailing winds with flat seas along the southern side of the Islands. The temperature ranges from the low 20’s at the beginning and end of season to the high 30s in August. Moderate to fresh winds force 3-6, the upper range being during the late July and August Meltemi season. Great for experienced sailors.
