Group Solo Travel in Greece

Travel solo as part of a luxury group tour to Greece

Why travel solo to Greece?

Warm turquoise sea, sunshine in spades and an ancient culture spanning four millennia… Greece is a magical, mythical destination to explore – especially on a solo travel group tour.

Look at a map of Greece and it’s almost as if someone has scattered a trail of delicate confetti over the Aegean Sea. With more than 4,000 islands, ranging from uninhabited rocky outcrops to photogenic holiday hotspots, you could spend a lifetime exploring – and still not visit them all.

Let’s not forget the mainland, mind. Athens is one of the world’s great cities, crowned by its hilltop Acropolis, visible for miles around, with edgy, intriguing neighbourhoods all nudged around its hem. The Athenian Riviera, too, is your go-to for easy-access beach clubs, cool bars and seafood-serving restaurants. Don’t miss the chance to try waterborne adventures, such as kayaking to the cliff-poised Temple of Poseidon.

Away from the cosmopolitan capital, in the wild, rural hinterland, much of Greece remains blissfully rugged, riddled with olive groves, whitewashed chapels and low-key villages. Add to that an abundance of legendary hospitality in the form of home-spun tavernas and this might just be Europe’s ultimate summer escape. Group holidays for solo travellers in Greece never looked so good…

Our Greece trips

Top places to visit in Greece

Athens

Hot, edgy, ancient but ever-evolving, there’s an irrepressible energy about Europe’s oldest capital. Crowned by the hilltop Acropolis, storied ruins are never far from view. But it’s the lively markets, cool cafes and buzzing rooftop bars that make this city such an appealing place to visit on a solo travel group tour of Greece.

Santorini

The undisputed star of the Cyclades, Santorini’s dramatic landscape was formed by one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history. The half-sunken crater that was left behind is a must-see sight for its steep polychromatic cliffs, vivid sunsets and views of the island’s sugar-cube buildings.

Naxos

A fertile island of green orchards, vineyards and olive groves, Naxos is the largest and least developed of the Cyclades. The rugged interior is dotted with tiny villages and traditional farms, while the coastline is punctuated by dozens of crescent-shaped beaches with warm shallow water, popular with kitesurfers.

Cape Sounion

The Athens Riviera reaches out from the port of Piraeus – gateway to the islands – along to idyllic Cape Sounion. Its star attraction is the Temple of Poseidon, clinging to a pine-clad hillside with views over the Aegean. Along the way, you’ll uncover sheltered inlets, hidden coves and secret swimming spots lining a coastline that’s best explored by kayak.
