A 7-day adventure around the coast of Naxos, the largest of Greece’s Cyclades island chain, world-famous for its baking sunshine, glowing blue waters and timeless hospitality. You’ll master the basics of the high-octane sport of windsurfing - and have plenty of free time to explore the island’s magically picturesque villages, sample the best of its food, and fall in love with its relaxed and utterly charming Greek way of life.





Welcome to Greece’s Cyclades islands - and specifically to Naxos, the largest in the chain, and the legendary childhood home of Zeus, king of the Gods. We’ll arrange for your transfers from the port to the studio where you’ll be staying for the week - and after introductions and a little free time to go exploring, you’ll head to bed, so you’re fresh and bright-eyed for the first of your windsurfing lessons in the morning!


Night: Studio in Naxos.

Every day, you’ll have 2h lessons with our expert guides, and whatever skill level you’re at, they’ll push you a little harder each day, so by the time you leave the island, you’re ready to take your skills and experience to the next level on your own.

With your plentiful free time, you’ll have a full schedule (and many optional activities) designed to help you explore the coastline and interior of Naxos - the stunning beaches, the glowing white houses of the hillside villages, the archaeological remnants of times past (including castles from the Venetian and Byzantine periods), and some of the best food and drink you’ll find in the whole of the Cyclades island chain. It’s a week that’ll be impossible to forget.


Night: Studio in Naxos.

All good things must come to an end - and it’s time to leave Naxos and test your newly-acquired windsurfing skills elsewhere on your own. Once you’re packed, it’s time for farewells and maybe a little last-minute exploring before the boat arrives and it’s time to go. Come back soon!
