Discover the real Greece! Get off-the-beaten path with Go Get Lost®. Hike across sun-splashed landscapes. Wander and explore an ancient port. Take a swim in the turquoise blue waters of a secluded bay. Dine on some of the freshest seafood from the Mediterranean. Walk the cobblestone streets of some of the oldest towns in the world. This is how Greece is meant to be explored.
With their spectacular fusion of sunlight, stone, and sparkling sea, the Greek Islands have attracted people for 4000 years. Located in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Greek Islands number near 6000 islands scattered across hundreds of miles of sun-kissed sea. The Dodecanese Islands have the richest history of all of them…with Greek, Byzantine and Ottoman architecture punctuating previous conquests by the Romans, Crusaders, Turks, and Venetians. We’ll explore some of the most popular spots and some of the off-the-beaten-path spots on the islands of Rhodes, Tilos and Symi. From the picturesque olive groves to the whitewashed houses, from the medieval cobblestone streets of Rhodes town to remote bays that have nothing but a beach, rocky cliffs, and us…we’ll get to find all the fun little spots that make a destination memorable. Like all Go Get Lost adventures, we’ll be visiting the villages, hiking the trails, sampling the wine, meeting the locals, enjoying the food, marveling at the incredible views, swimming in pristine Mediterranean bays, and slowly easing into the pace of life in this magnificent corner of the globe!
