Departing Saturdays from Lavrio port

Elixir Cruises is about boutique cruising redefined.
It’s about unique journeys of discovery of new places and a new you. A holistic approach that embraces
mind, body, and soul aboard yacht-like havens of comfort & style. A true-small ship experience.
The Elysium sails the GREEK ISLANDS in the summer and the pristine SULTANATE OF OMAN in the
winter months.
With only 25 elegantly decorated and spacious cabins, a spa suite, a mini-gym, deliciously healthy Mediterranean
cuisine, top-notch service, as well as daily Pilates and yoga classes, the Elysium awaits to
soothe your soul and excite your senses.
During your cruise you will relax and unwind, visit pristine coves and beaches, experience local culture
and discover ancient civilizations.
In line with our Elixir Balance Concept Ⓒ we give you the choices to tailor-make your cruise experience.
Have a massage, meditate at sunset, enjoy a glass of chilled wine, hike a volcano, fish with locals, snorkel,
stargaze, read a book. Join us solo, as a couple, with friends or with family. Be active or relaxed. Be
as sociable as you like. Make long lasting memories, long lasting friends, or both. You decide.
Whichever way you choose, be prepared to embark on one of the most enriching and fun experiences of
your life.
See you onboard the Elysium!

and equally romantic destinations in Greece. Hydra is an architectural reserve, free of motor vehicles, and summer home
to many international celebrities. Dinner on board the Elysium and overnight at the port of Hydra.
Day 2 / SUNDAY
In the morning we set sail for the Peloponnese, where you will enjoy a swim stop at the stunningly beautiful, sheltered
bay of Fokianos, with its white pebble beach and crystal-clear waters. Lunch on board the Elysium. Late afternoon we
arrive in the uniquely preserved medieval town of Monemvasia, meaning “the only entrance”. Explore its fairytale-like beauty
and walk its narrow, pebbled alleys. Join our optional historical tour and opt to hike up to the church of Hagia Sofia, among
the oldest and most important Byzantine churches in Greece. The windswept panorama of the Aegean sea from atop the cliff
will astound you. Overnight in Monemvasia.
Day 3 / MONDAY
Morning arrival off the coast of southern Laconia at Pavlopetri, one of the oldest submerged cities in the world. The spectacular
Unesco Bronze age city is over 5000 years old and visiting this place is no doubt an impressive addition to any true traveler’s journal.
The snorkeling over Pavlopetri is simply breathtaking and a memory that you will cherish forever. Just across from Pavlopetri,
the tiny Elafonisos is a dream of an island, with sand hills and turquoise tropical waters. Swim ashore or let our tender take you
to this magical beach, a Natura protected habitat. Lunch and dinner on board. Overnight at sea.
Early morning arrival at Katakolon port, our base to explore the birthplace of the Olympic Games. The Unesco world heritage site
of ancient Olympia will transport you to a different era. To this day the Olympic flame is lit from the rays of the sun, at the Temple of
Hera and passed on by a high priestess. Take our optional historical tour to visit the archaeological sites and museums of ancient
Olympia, undoubtedly one of the most significant ancient sanctuaries in the world. Late afternoon we set sail for Zakynthos island.
Enjoy a swim at Vasilikos beach, visit the authentic villages in the area or opt for a horse-riding experience before we sail to the
main port of Zakynthos. Discover the famous vibrant town, also known as Zante. Dinner on board the Elysium and overnight at port.
Morning arrival at the stunning world-famous “Navagio” beach. Also known as “smuggler’s cove, it has repeatedly been voted most
beautiful beach in the world. Jump off the Elysium platform into the milky blue waters or let us take you onshore to enjoy the soft
white sand beach and have a close-up look of the shipwreck. Lunch on board. Late afternoon we depart for Ithaca, the mythical island
of Odysseus. Enjoy a chilled glass of wine or a cocktail next to the waves at the port of Milos, the heart of the nightlife in Ithaca.
Overnight at Vathy port in Ithaca.
Optional excursions to the Archaeological Collection of Stavros, which houses findings from excavations in the wider region of Stavros
and northern Ithaca or to the small and peaceful Kathara Monastery high up on a mountain. The views on the way back to Vathy port
are staggering. In the afternoon we set sail to Gidaki, a stunning beach with emerald green waters, one of the most beautiful in the
Ioanian sea. Late evening departure for Itea. Dinner on board the Elysium and overnight at sea.
Day 7 / FRIDAY
Early morning arrival in Itea, the perfect base for exploring Delphi and the beautiful Galaxidi, with our optional historical tours.
The ancient sanctuary of Delphi, dedicated to the God Apollo, was considered the “navel of the world” and from there the Oracle
and high priestess Pythia gave her prophecies. The romantic and tranquil town of Galaxidi has a rich maritime history and
was once one of Greece’s wealthiest ports and shipyards. Beautiful neoclassical architecture and pebble covered courtyard are
immaculately preserved to this day. Return to the Elysium and enjoy a cocktail as you experience the unforgettable crossing of
the narrow Corinth Canal. Farewell dinner on board.
Disembarkation at Lavrion until 10:00 after breakfast.
