How to arrange your stay to Mount Athos
Due to the large number of visitors, men must plan their visit to Mount Athos some months before! Below you can find some links for information on how to arrange your visit.
Excursion to Mount Athos Cruise
Mount Athos: Only men are welcome to make a pilgrimage to Mount Athos, about 129 km south east of Thessaloniki, where it is possible to step back in time and mingle with hundreds of monks, from more than 20 monasteries, in one of the most scenic spots in Europe. This unique mountainous enclave on the coast is sprinkled with huge monasteries, most resembling castles, containing wonderful frescoes, mosaics and libraries. Mount Athos is a self-governing area within Greece, and to visit it is necessary to obtain a permit from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Athens, or from the Ministry of Northern Greece in Thessaloniki.
During this tour, the boat will sail along the coastline in order to maximize the viewing of some of the most prominent monasteries with magnificent architecture and enjoy the unique landscape.
