This cruise constitutes a unique experience, both for men and women, because a cruise would be the only way the latter can approach and admire the Mt. Athos monasteries in close proximity. The ship moves along the coast line of the Athos peninsula, so you can get the chance to clearly see the monasteries. During this cruise, our crew will provide you with interesting information about each specific monastery and the monastic life, as well as rich photographic material from the inside of the monasteries.
In 2016, the Russian Monastery (Holy Monastery of St. Panteleimon) marks the anniversary of a 1000 years since its founding.
You can choose between two itineraries:
- Ouranoupoli to Holy Monastery of St. Panteleimon (Russian Monastery) 3 hrs
2. Ouranoupoli to Karoulia (5 hrs.)
Coffee and fruit salad are offered free of charge.
During the returning to port, we will stop for an additional 30 minutes at Drenia islands for you to swim, for free!
