Explore the Greek island of Kos, with breakfast, an island-hopping boat trip, car hire and flights

Discover a little more of this pretty patch of the world, with an included boat trip that takes in three nearby islands: Kalymnos, Plati and Pserimos. Over the boat trip you'll have the chance to swim in the shallow seas, people-watch from a local cafe and find out about the process of harvesting natural sponges. Your base for this chilled out escape will be a 4-star hotel in Kos' capital city, which is known for its old town, traditional tavernas, waterfront bars and Paradise Beach. With car hire included too, you can explore every corner of Kos at your own pace.

Discover vibrant Kos
Nothing slows you down quite like an island escape. Set that getaway on the Greek Island of Kos and you've got a no-brainer of a holiday. The third largest of the Dodecanese islands, Kos is fringed with sandy beaches and peppered with historical sights. From impressive castles to natural hot springs, there's plenty to discover here, all against the backdrop of Greece's lively evening vibe. Kos packs a hefty historical punch too, being the birthplace of Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) and home to Apollo's Temple. Its healing heritage even attracted the likes of Cleopatra in her day.

Excursion to Kalymnos, Plati and Pserimos

In Vathi you can try homemade orange juice, and even visit a sponge factory - Kalymnos is famous for their natural sponges. You will learn how divers collect the sponges and then process and shape them. Back on the boat, a light lunch buffet awaits you. Next up is Plati, where the sea is incredibly clear. Take a dip and enjoy fresh cocktails (chargeable) on board the boat. Finally, head for Pserimos, a quiet resort island that is ideal for swimming in its shallow waters. Discover beautiful vistas on a walk or just settle down in a local cafe or tavern. The boat will returns to Kos around 5pm. On each island you will have about 1 hour to explore and relax.
