Yachting Holidays and Learn to Sail with us this summer

Activity Holidays Greece have been operating yachting holidays and Learn to Sail holidays in the Southern Ionian Islands for over twenty five years. We are a small, family run yacht charter company with yachts based in Nidri on the island of Lefkas, Greece.

Ben Scholfield - Activity Holidays Greece Sailing HolidayNo telephone menus to negotiate, no trained sales people trying to sell you something you don’t want. From booking to sailing, it will be a member of our family that will help and advice.

When arriving you will meet the owner and lead Skipper, Ben. Unlike a lot of professional skippers, Ben knew exactly what he wanted to do well before leaving college where he studied Adventure Sports. Taking his Yacht Master qualifications whilst sailing in Australia and New Zealand, he has been a sailing instructor in both the Dodecanese and the Southern Ionian Islands for the last 15 years. He is passionate about sailing and teaching and his CV includes European, Transatlantic, Caribbean and East Coast American passages, as well as regularly yacht racing while in the UK.

Our skippers speak fluent English and are fully qualified to provide support and guidance on your sailing holidays.  We adhere to a Safe Sailing Policy that is paramount, without exception.  To be commercially endorsed, our yachts have to adhere to very stringent equipment, maintenance and safety regulations and are inspected annually.

Come and sail with the team this summer.

As a family run company, we strive to exceed our guests expectations.

We are small enough that we can tailor our route to our customers as well as the changing weather patterns if needed.
