As photographic partner, Canon Collective has joined forces with Adriatic Adventures to bring you a once in a lifetime photographic tour, visiting the Greek Islands, Mainland Greece and Ephesus in Turkey.
Have you ever dreamed about seeing the ancient architecture of Athens through the lens? Or perhaps navigating the white-washed buildings lining the streets of Santorini? What about the sunrise over the astonishing views of Meteora? This is your chance to experience some of the most stunning landscapes in the world, capturing incredible scenes using camera equipment from the world’s leading imaging company.
Our 14 day tour will commence in Athens on 1 October 2020, where we’ll board our home at sea, the 54 metre Mega Yacht 'Harmony G'. On our 8 day cruise of the Aegean Sea, we’ll take in the perennial favourites of Santorini and Mykonos, as well as charming hill villages, secluded beaches and an unusual rock hewn monastery. We’ll delve into Greece’s rich history, exploring ancient archaeological sites inclusive of Delos, the mythological birthplace of Apollo, before continuing onto Turkey to tour the ruins of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Disembarking in Athens on Day 9, we say goodbye to our yacht crew and hello to our coach driver, ready to hit the road. The next 5 days will see our group taking in an array of breathtaking sunsets overlooking the monasteries of Meteora, the impressive limestone cliffs of Zakynthos - otherwise known as 'Shipwreck Beach' and a guided tour of historically significant Olympia. Throughout the tour, you’ll get to enjoy all the culinary delights of the region and explore locations of the traditional tourist trail.
