Travel to Greece – Most of our guests make their way to Preveza airport (PVK) located about 30 minutes from our base in Nidri.
Other ways to get to us bearing in mind our sailing holidays begin and end on Sundays – Travel to Greece
As well as London Gatwick (LGW) Manchester (MAN), or Birmingham. We suggest taking a look at www.charterflight.co.uk’, ‘Skyscanner’ and www.travelrepublic.co.uk as well as other operators, to find your own competitively priced flights. Please remember you will need to get to our yachts. Let us help you by arranging a personal taxi for you. You will be met at the airport by our taxi driver and he will assist you and bring you to our base. He can take up to 4 people for just €55 to Nidri or €45 to Lefkas. Please ask us for details regarding transferring larger parties.
You may like to consider an alternative route. There are Easyjet flights from Gatwick and Luton to Corfu on Sunday mornings. Once in Corfu you would taxi to the ferry port which is about a 10 minute ride and approx. €10, taken the ferry to Igoumenitsa which is on mainland Greece and is roughly one and a half hours, €10. You would then need to travel to our base in Nidri or Lefkas if you are taking a bareboat, which is about one and a half hours journey and we can arrange a taxi for €155 for a party of up to 4. Also please ask for details for larger parties.
Ryanair fly to Corfu on Saturdays from Stansted with return flights on Mondays, enabling a couple of nights in Corfu Town for example and the convenience to catch our Sunday transfer from Igoumenitsa.
Many budget airlines are now flying into Athens and Corfu from UK, Irish and European Regional Airports allowing weekend and midweek travel, arriving in time to join our Sunday sailing programmes. Use this to extend your sailing holiday to include a few days of sunbathing or sightseeing in cosmopolitan and historic Athens or the shabby chic of Corfu Town. Transfers using local buses and ferries are straightforward, reasonably priced and will give you a flavour of the country you are travelling in.

We consider adequate Travel Insurance vital prior to any trip when you travel to Greece, and therefore make this a condition of carriage. You will need to arrange your own cover and we will need to know the Insurers name, your policy number and a 24 hour emergency telephone number upon making your booking with us.
“Our Symbolic Wedding - First I want to say a big Thank You for all the organizing you did for us. Our wedding was a big surprise and exactly how we wanted to do it. We had an amazing night and wouldn't have changed a thing. Ben did a incredible job, we were so happy.
The sailing week was great! We really enjoyed the new experience and we will be happy to promote Ben's company to our friends.”

“My best ever holiday. So cool. Great for teenagers and families. I got to spend loads of time with my dad, mates, learning to sail, swimming, sunbathing, snorkelling, diving, surfing on the SUP board etc. Sleeping on deck was brilliant and we stayed somewhere new every day. Superb from start to finish, and I've told dad we should only ever go with Ben”

“5 STARS - This is the 4th trip we've done with Activity Holidays Greece and the 1st since Ben took over the business.
If you want to sail the Ionian bareboat but with the comfort blanket of knowing experienced skippers are only a radio shout away and always on hand to assist with mooring then you can't fault these guys.
Small enough to care but big enough to cope sounds like a worn out tune but it really does sum them up.
Ben likes to run no more than about 5 boats in his flotilla - his own 2 for sail training and the others bareboat or with an experienced skip onboard.
We'll definitely be back next year.”
