34 Kayak between Grecian isles

Odysseus famously returned to Ithaca on a magically fast Phaeacian ship. Much Better Adventures' two-day trip visits some of the Ionian archipelago's lesser-known isles in a humbler vessel: the kayak (from £183;muchbetteradventures.com;). Going by this mode of transport comes with the benefit of being able to explore small coves reached only by sea - and the bragging rights of having got there under your own paddle-power. Highlights include camping on a beach and barbecuing under the stars on Meganisi, and snorkelling around the uninhabited island of Thilia (pictured), in warm waters such a vivid shade of cyan it's hard to believe they haven't been Instagram filtered.
