YACHTING

Just imagine skimming like a bird or a flying fish over the gentle waves, with only the sounds of the wind in the sails and the water against the hull. It’s an experience which calms the soul and revives the senses in ways you never thought were possible!

A yacht or a boat under sail, big or small, either alone or with a small hand picked crew, enables such a dream to come true. There are numerous sea vessels, from small and basic to big and luxurious, available for hire on Thassos.

Limenas, the island’s capital, is known for its large marina and modern facilities for vessels of all sizes. So well-known in fact, that it hosted and served 95 competing sail boats in 2010 when Thassos was the starting point of the Aegean Regatta – an annual international sailing competition.

HORSE RIDING

Most Greek islands do not offer the invigorating experience of riding a horse along the sea’s shore or high up into the mountainside, which is another thing that sets Thassos apart from the rest of Greece.
As a pleasant alternative pastime, the island’s horse-back riding school in Skala Prinos offers horse riding lessons in the school’s large paddock, as well as pony trekking in the rolling hills, lush valleys and sandy beaches of Thassos.
