It’s the vividness of Greece’s colours that sets the landscape apart from many others. Bright blue skies sharply contrasted against the lush shades of the green olive trees that densely cover the red rock before it tumbles away into the sea. The colours of the ocean can’t be described, every possible hue of blue exists, with water so clear at the coastline that when cupped in your hands looks as if it is from a mountain spring.
The Greek Ionian is split into two parts - the North and the South. A Journey Through’s journeys are predominately around the South Ionian which takes in the islands of Lefkas, Meganisi, Ithica and Cephalonia to name just a few.
This area has everything to offer. We tailor the trips to you and if its secluded bays and calm you want then we can find that, if its bustling harbour towns all of life then we can find that too. Fine dining? Historical tours? Land-based excursions? All can be arranged and incorporated into your week with us.
On the water, our highly experienced sailing instructor/skippers can teach you anything you want to know. Off it, we will guide you to the best bars and book you the best tables.

Wind and weather in September
September is the perfect time of year to sail in Greece. The temperatures are high but the stifling 40 degree days of the height of summer have passed, as has much of the ‘traffic’ in the area as the busiest July/August period is over.
The high-pressure atmospheric systems that usually sit over the region in those months also start to dissipate meaning that there is usually a more reliable prevailing wind.
