    Somewhere on this student trip to Greece, between SCUBA diving in Naxos, kayaking around Santorini and touring Athens, you’ll fall in love with this gorgeous Mediterranean country. Sure, you’ll see the famous monuments and highlights but don’t be surprised when the warmth of the local people you meet makes you want to stay in this island paradise forever.

    We group the teens traveling on this program into co-ed, age-compatible groups that are fun and inclusive for all. This small group format with a very detailed itinerary also allows travelers some flexibility along the way to perhaps find that viewpoint for the perfect golden sunset or to pick your favorite cafe on what we believe is the best Greek island trip for teens.

    Program Highlights:

    • Relax in volcanic hot springs.
    • Venture to the Parthenon and Acropolis.
    • SCUBA and snorkel off the coast of Naxos.
    • Swim in the warm waters of the Aegean Sea.
