Open Jaw

Naxos, Greece is a stop on the Greek Island Adventure vacation.

In 2020, Globus and Cosmos are unveiling 11 “Undiscovered Mediterranean” tours – including six new vacations, ranging from 8 to 19 days – that invite Canadians to dive into the Mediterranean’s secluded seaside towns and medieval alleyways.

"These lovely tours are perfect for the traveller who wishes to explore beyond the ‘usual’ tourist destinations, to experience small villages, winding roads, and take time to connect with the locals," says Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands. "We will take them where the other tour companies don’t go, and where the cruise ships don’t visit."

The new itineraries include (all prices in Canadian dollars and excluding airfare):

Greek Island Adventure (8 days, priced from $2,499)
A high-speed ferry whisks travellers away to the lesser-known isles of Greece (they will see NO cruise ships here). This vacation overnights in Athens, Heraklion, Naxos and Paros.

Eclectic Aegean with 7-Night Cruise (11 days, priced from $3,829)
Travellers will set sail on the Aegean for Greece and Turkey’s coastal cities, waterfront villages and tiny isles, uncovering 4,000 years of archeology in Canakkale, experiencing the charming windmills of Mykonos and taking a scenic hike along Centaur’s Path in Volos.

Southern Italy & Greece with 4-Night Cruise (19 days, priced from $6,079)
Travellers compare the coasts, culture and cuisine of three countries on this land and cruise tour exploring Sicily and Southern Italy, Greece and the Turquoise Coast of Turkey.
This vacation includes overnights in Palermo, Catania, Cosenza, Matera, Lecce, Itea and Athens.

Globus is launching new Undiscovered Mediterranean tours with its value-brand escorted tour company Cosmos. Cosmos itineraries “incorporate more free time to explore as you wish and soak up the local ambience, far from the crowds," says Bishop.

Discover the Eastern Med (11 days priced from $2,159)
Starting in the walled city of Dubrovnik, used in the filming of Game of Thrones, and ending inside the famed walls of Rome’s gladiatorial Colosseum, this vacation traverses through the less-travelled Mediterranean countries of Montenegro and Albania and includes overnights in Dubrovnik, Budva, Tirana, Bari and Rome

For those looking for more of an à la carte option, Globus' Cosmos Lite vacations offer a hassle-free way to discover the Mediterranean. Cosmos Lite combines all the classic components of a hassle-free escorted tour (motorcoach transportation, accommodation and services of a Tour Director) with the freedom to tailor each day according to individual travellers’ interests, budgets and pace.

Cosmos Lite is unveiling two new “Undiscovered Mediterranean” Vacations:

  • Nice to Lyon Explorer (8 days, priced from $1,189) with overnights in Nice, Aix-en-Provence, Orange and Lyon.
  • Greek Explorer & Aegean Islands Cruise (12 days, priced from $2,379) with overnights in Athens, Vytina and Patras.
