  • The sacred island of Delos, where the atmospheric ruins include Apollo’s oracle.
  • Explore Naxos, forever associated with Dionysus and Ariadne.
  • Enjoy exclusive access to the largest Mycenean tholos tomb in the Cyclades.

Of all the thousands of Greek Islands which are scattered over the Aegean Sea, the Cyclades have the most evocative mythology. The archipelago is named for its encircling of the sacred isle of Delos, the legendary birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Its surrounding islands are no less fascinating - from Tinos, with its temple dedicated to Poseiden, to Naxos with its spectacular unfinished kouroi (male statues).

Sunlight bouncing off the sparkling surface of the Aegean, creamy marble set against an azure sky, the cool depths of prehistoric tombs – and, if we are lucky, dolphins following in our wake as we travel from port to ancient port.
