Travelling in summer is a great idea, but you shouldn’t dismiss other seasons just because they are colder. A trip to Greece this April may be exactly what you need to clear your head and start working on that forgotten project. Without further ado, we present you VOYAGE Challenge reasons why you should visit Greece this April.
Visit Landmarks without Crowds of Tourists
Visiting Greece in the low season is a great opportunity to admire the ancient landmarks and not the heads of other tourists. Since most of the tourists visit the landmarks during the high season, the mainland sites are practically deserted. Imagine all of the great photographs you’ll be able to take and there won’t be any random people ruining the shot. It’s a dream come true.
Easter is the most sacred observance in the Greek Orthodox faith. In 2017, Orthodox Easter Sunday will fall on April 16th. The Greek-Orthodox Holy Week is a magnificent roller coaster of celebration, sentiment and tradition. You cannot miss out on it!
Swim in a Thermal Lake
If you don’t mind the cold – Greece beaches in April is the perfect place for swimming. If not, don’t fret! There is no need to forget your bikini and swimming trunks at home, just head to Lake Vouliagmeni. With the lowest temperature recorded in winter being 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit), the brackish waters offer a natural experience of a thermal spa.
First of all, it doesn’t matter if you like hiking or not – you cannot skip Santorini. Now if you enjoy hiking, Santorini may be your dream come true island. The most popular hike in Santorini is Fira To Oia (via Firostefani and Imerovigli). The 10km hike includes spectacular, cliff-top walking with the sparkling, azure Aegean sea stretching for miles before your eyes—if you’re going to hike in Santorini, this one is not to be missed.
Enjoy the Warm Heat of Rakomelo
Although April in Greece is pleasant, the evenings can get a bit chilly. To stay warm, you could try having a rakomelo, a drink that is consumed year-round though it’s more popular in the low season. A blend of raki and honey, this herb-infused spirit is one of the best options to warm up during the cold nights. If raki is not your thing, however, there is also a version of this drink made with wine, called oinomelo.
A good trip and change your life. VOYAGE Challenge was created exactly for that purpose. For the first time, VOYAGE Challenge kicks-off in Greece April 2017. During the Entrepreneurial travel, the participants will explore Greece, meet face to face with successful Greek entrepreneurs, develop their business plans and sail the Aegean sea in a yacht their team. Just imagine a morning on a yacht, drinking your Greek coffee with your new friends and business partners. If you can’t wait that long, don’t worry, we still have a few spots left in the Canary Islands trip on January 14-28th. For more information, contact the Founder of VOYAGE Challenge – Simona Simulyte.
