9 Night Cruise sailing from Split to Athens aboard Golden Horizon.

The World’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, Golden Horizon. A near replica of the 1913-built ocean vessel, France II, she retains the charm, adventure and romance of an historic ship.

Golden Horizon attracts like-minded adventure seekers for a sailing experience which allows guests to connect with the elements of the natural world.

The ambience on board is relaxed, casual, elegant and without unnecessary formality. We have created an environment which will encourage our guests to return to time and time again, and to share their stories and experiences.

With grace and beauty, the Golden Horizon is a sailing ship first and foremost, sailing to share adventures with our friends, our guests.

All 140 cabins are outside facing, so guests can enjoy the breath-taking views. Cabins evoke the luxury and facilities expected of a boutique cruise ship, whilst retaining charm, adventure and romance of a truly historic sailing vessel.

Our ship uses the wind and currents and follows the sun to allow adventure seekers to travel the world in a unique way. Our philosophy is to be powered by nature whenever possible and we intend to sail, without using propulsion, for around 70% of each season.

Highlights of this cruise:

Leaving atmospheric Split and its Roman-era Diocletian’s Palace behind, we’ll sail down the Dalmatian Coast. Having explored the pine-forested island of Korcula, where Croatia’s finest white wines are made, you’ll get to admire Dubrovnik, whose ancient walls and Baroque buildings host many sophisticated restaurants. Less glitzy but equally handsome is Kotor, over the border in Montenegro, a medieval city wedged between sheer mountains and a blue bay, where café-covered squares and Venetian palaces abound. after Kotor, we set sail for Sarande, an Albanian town that sits on a horseshoe-shaped bay, edged by beaches and a promenade.

Now turning our attention to the Greek Islands, we begin with a classic. Despite its popularity, Corfu retains an idyll-like feel thanks to its sleepy villages, dreamy shores and tree-lined hills. Two quaint islands follow: pottery-making Sifnos is a vintage blend of whitewashed village and olive groves, while donkeys are the sole mode of transportation along marble-cobbled lanes on Hydra, which has long lured artists. From there we sail to Piraeus, close to Athens and all of its glories.
