After everyone has gotten acquainted, we’ll sit down for our official Welcome Dinner.

Hotel: New Hotel, Athens


Athens gay cruise

We’ll enjoy a swim stop in Poliegos’ azure waters followed by a BBQ lunch on deck.

After lunch, we sail to Folegandros, one of the lesser-known islands, where we’ll stay overnight.

Upon arrival, we’ll take a local bus to the charming Upper City, where you are free to wander on your own and nibble your way through its many Greek tavernas before returning to the ship.

Day 4 - Santorini
Feel free to take your coffee on the upper deck as we sail to stylish Santorini.

Upon arrival, we have a half-day tour planned beginning with a cable car ride up to the island’s capital, Fira. It’s here we’ll stroll the city’s narrow streets.

We’ll then board a bus and take a scenic drive through the countryside, passing the village of Pyrgos en route to the archaeological site of Akrotiri. This ancient city was frozen in time by layers of ash from an eruption 3,600 years ago. Excavation has unveiled a sophisticated and ancient city with excellent frescoes and elaborate architecture.

From here we head further north to picturesque Oia, which sits comfortably above the striking caldera. Our local guide will lead us through the town, pointing out its famous domed buildings as well as giving us insights into the city’s architecture and culture.

Finally, we’ll head back to the Galileo for a late “Greek Night” dinner on board. Expect ouzo, meze (Greek appetizers), seafood, and other local delicacies. To toga or not to toga? That is the question.

Our guide will lead us through the folklore museum before taking us to Naoussa, a fishing village that has blossomed into a chic city full of shops, taverns, bars, and nightlife.

This teeny, uninhabited island is just a quick ferry ride from Mykonos. On this private excursion, our guide will point out Hellenistic houses, the Sanctuary (Apollo’s temple), and the guardians of the Sacred Lake: five marble lions from the 7th century BC. Finally, we’ll visit the Theatre and the Roman quarter, where Dionysus’ ancient statues await.

Tonight we’ll enjoy dinner on board before a free evening. Perhaps hit up one of the town’s many gay bars (or clubs).

Greece Gay Travel


Trip Notes

Gay travellers will fall in love with this thick slice of hedonistic heaven.
From ancient Olympia to modern Mykonos, Greece has always been a country where the food is as rich as the history, and the locals are as hot as the weather. Thankfully, travellers can cool off in the balmy Aegean Sea which laps the country’s beloved beaches. While you’ll find gay bars throughout the country, Mykonos deserves a special shout-out. The island’s extraordinary nightlife is as flaming as saganaki—and just as delicious. If you’re planning a big gay Greek adventure, we highly recommend packing both your stretchy and party pants…and maybe even a toga for good measure.

A visa is not required for American, Australian, British, and Canadian citizens travelling to Greece for fewer than 90 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.


Gay Greek Islands


LGBT Rights in Greece
Greece has a long and storied history with homosexuality. Beyond Greek mythology being particularly homoerotic—looking at you, Apollo—some of the best known gay historical figures were of Greek descent. Notably, Alexander The Great. Today, Greece remains a largely LGBTQ+ welcoming destination, especially in major cities and throughout the laid-back islands. However, the openly homophobic Greek Orthodox Church maintains a firm grasp on day-to-day life. Much of rural Greece remains devoutly religious.

Gay Greece Travel
Fact: Gays love Greece. It’s one of the oldest and best-known LGBTQ+ destinations. Specifically, Mykonos is the epicentre of gay Grecian nightlife where local and international Queens perform for bears, boys, and the occasional lesbian. Countless beaches are overridden with queer people in and out of designer speedos. Circuit parties thump out Top 40 beats throughout high season, with the largest and most famous being XLSIOR hitting the island every August. Finally, Athens Gay Pride is a celebration of local queer culture. It tends to put activism and social equality at the forefront of the festival.


Gay Mykonos


Best Time to Visit
If you’re looking to party in Mykonos, plan your trip in high season (Jun–Aug). For cooler weather and less crowds, shoulder seasons tend to be a better choice (Apr & May, Sep & Oct)

Covid-19 Vaccination Requirements:
Out Adventures requires proof of full Covid-19 vaccination from all guests, following recommendations by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Other Vaccinations
Based on the entry requirements for Greece, there are no other vaccinations needed. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic. We cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

The power plugs and sockets are of type C and F. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
