Go on a modern-day odyssey in Greece

Greek odyssey

The harbour town of Symi, on the Dodecanese island of the same name

Odysseus took 10 years to journey back to Ithaca from Troy, in what is now modern-day Turkey. A sail through the Aegean Sea’s palette of blues, hopping between the Dodecanese, a Greek island chain hugging the Turkish mainland, reveals why he was keen to linger. This is Greece at its sunniest (so much so that the sun god Helios was said to live on Rhodes, the biggest of the islands) and is best explored in late spring, before the thermostat jumps to scorching. Utracks’ eightday Southern Aegean Bike and Sail cruise takes in the millennia-old temples and acropolises, crusader churches and bougainvillea-draped Byzantine arches in Rhodes and Kos, as well as lesser-visited islands such as Symi, with its dainty Italianate harbour, and Nisyros, with its gurgling volcano.
