Island weekends

From bustling cities to otherwise unpopulated escapes, circumscribed pieces of land can ofer boundless rewards

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;).
