We start our journey at 11:00 from the port of Ouranoupolis, a small village at the edge of the frontier between the Holy Mountain and the rest of the world.
Cruise to Mount Athos. Departure from Ouranoupolis
After about 5 minutes of sailing we meet the borders of the monasterial city which are defined on the ground by an imaginary line that starts from the location “Fragocastro” in the west coast and reaches the cape “Arapis” in the opposite end.
From this point we enter into the region of Mount Athos and you can feel the spiritual aura of this place even as you stand on the deck of our boat as we sail along the coastline of peninsula and come face to face with the impressive monasteries clinging to the cliffs.
