One holiday – all the adventures!
Wildwind Adventures is the ultimate watersports sampler holiday. Take on a new challenge every day, on, under and right across the water!
Learn the basics of dinghy or catamaran sailing and then join one of our world class instructors to experience the thrill over dashing across the bay at full speed – there’s just no sensation like it. Become one with the life that exists below the surface on a gorgeous snorkelling trip, and go real deep once you’re in full scuba gear. Learn how to windsurf - or show off your skills. Explore Lefkas, the famously green island with the white rocky coastline, by kayak or stand-up paddle-board. Not to be missed: spot dolphins, flying fish and other aquatic wildlife during our exciting sea safari.
All these adventures are yours to experience as part of one holiday that starts at the surprising low introductory price of £855 including flights. That’s a value that is very hard to beat by any standard.
Wildwind Adventures is a completely new holiday concept created by Wildwind, which has been Europe’s top sailing destination for over three decades. We’re based in the authentic Greek fishing village of Vassiliki, where the friendly bar and restaurant owners in the harbour will welcome you with open arms. We’re just a three-hour flight away from London, but you’ll instantly be in a different world entirely. The village is safe and tranquil, and the calm and relaxed pace of Greek island life forms a wonderful backdrop to the adventures you are about to embark on.
Why settle for a normal holiday when there are so many adventures to be had?

A unique laid-back atmosphere
Wildwind Adventures shares its facilities with Wildwind sailing and Healthy Options Yoga, Pilates and fitness, two of Europe's best and most respected holidays that attract visitors from all over the continent. However, because the number of guests allowed at any one time is limited because of the small scale of the setup in the bay, you’ll find the atmosphere to be very relaxed. People of different ages and with all sorts of backgrounds flock together around the beach to share in the holiday spirit in which everything is optional. Enjoy lunch in the village, go for a walk to the nearby olive groves and smell the lemon blossom, enjoy our cocktail evenings around the pool and make some new friends at the BBQ nights with live music.
A stunning island that’s a must to visit
The island of Lefkas itself is a sight to behold. The white rocky coastline, famous from ancient Greek mythology, creates a sharp visual contrast with the lush green vegetation that covers the mountain peaks. Unlike other Greek islands, Lefkas isn’t spoilt by mass tourism; it’s a place where real people live, work and raise their children, just as they have done since the times of Aristotle.
Perfect climate for watersports
Wildwind Adventures is based right in the centre of the beach that surrounds the gorgeous bay of Vassiliki, world renowned for its uniquely favourable watersports conditions. The bay itself is expansive yet safe and controlled. More importantly, the unique geological structure of the area all but ensures calm winds in the morning - ideal for activities like kayaking, paddle boarding and scuba diving - while the afternoons are almost without exception very windy, ideal for experiencing the thrill of speed. Even if you never sailed before, we guarantee you’ll have a massive grin on your face as you return from a joy ride with one of our experienced instructors.
Family-run hotels right on the beach
You will be warmly received in one of our recently renovated and tastefully appointed hotels right on the beach, staffed by local families as they have been for decades. Our holidays are priced not to include any meals, giving you the freedom to do some culinary exploration. The on-site restaurants and pool bar offer Mediterranean fare that’s fresh, healthy and delicious and there are plenty of vegetarian options available. We recommend, however, for you to venture out from time to time: the old harbour is just a stone's throw away and here you find many cozy restaurants and pubs. This being a fishing village, the fresh sea food delicacies are especially recommended!
