Amorgos, a small island in the Aegean Sea with 1800 inhabitants, which, according to Greek mythology, Ulysses was attracted like a magnet by Goddess Kirki. It is known to be the place with the 2nd highest terrestrial magnetism in the world. Every year it attracts yoga, health, wellness and diving enthusiasts, which are drawn by the island’s strong revitalizing energy, the abundance of therapeutic herbs and the breathtaking views, which make the Amorgos Island a perfect place for physical and spiritual rejuvenation.

1. Is this journey for me?
This journey is for people who like Adventure and Water. It’s not a touristic endeavor; it’s an invitation to travel in a different way, dancing through several idyllic places in the Amorgos Island, in Greece. It’s limited to 12 participants and a Flow Team of 3 people who will be with you during the trip.
It is for those who are interested in exploring their creative potential and expanding their abilities, building a closer relationship with the water and the Oceans. For Nature lovers and people who want to experience and develop different practices, or even overcome any fear or discomfort they may feel towards water. Prior swimming or dancing experience is not required.
This journey is for those who want to have fun and relax at the same time, to have time for themselves and to get to know themselves better. We are going to perform daily practices in order to foster conscious and considerate attitudes towards ourselves, the group and the world that surrounds us.
It’s all about going with the Flow – to trust and to let yourself be surprised by what we have in store for you. Please bring an open mind, an open heart and a good sense of humour!
2. How are the accommodations and in what type of rooms are we going to stay?
We will stay in a family-run hotel called Aegialis Hotel & SPA, in comfortable and minimalist rooms with a stunning view of the Cliffs and the blue bay of the Aegialis Beach. The Hotel has a SPA with sauna, Thalassotherapy, Turkish bath, jacuzzi, indoor saltwater pool and a gym. The rooms are shared. If you are traveling alone, you will be paired with another traveler of the same gender. If you are travelling as a couple or with a friend, you will have your own private room. This accommodation was specially selected in order to offer richer experiences. It is the only place in the island that has a heated saltwater pool. It offers the perfect conditions for us to carry out our activities in the water and on the land and to enjoy a perfect week.
3. What if I want a private / single room?
It’s possible to have your own room, just select a single room in the booking process.
4. When should I book my flight?
You should only buy your plane ticket after paying for the trip and confirming that your reservation is complete. Book your flight as soon as possible.
5. Can I go alone?
Of course you can. As a matter of fact, most of our travelers go by themselves. In this trip, you will meet new people and make friends.
6. Who will I share my journey with?
First of all, you will be with Violeta Lapa and Gustavo Neves during the whole trip. You will also spend the week with the teacher Apostolia Papadamaki and other travelers who share with you a common interest for traveling, adventure and discovery … and who are also looking for new emotions and unforgettable moments.
We travel in small groups. For us, it is paramount to pay attention to each participant and to give each one of them our undivided attention. We also invite you to share a friendly atmosphere through our co-creative teamwork, where we support and help each other during and after the trip.
All Oceans and Flow travelers share two common interests: traveling and a passion for Water. It means that they are curious, active people with a taste for learning, exploring and, above all, for developing a different vision and a sustainable attitude towards the places they visit. They are people who seek adventure and discovery and, therefore, they tend to have a carefree attitude when facing unexpected circumstances. They would choose to be in touch with local traditions over the comfort of international chains of hotels or restaurants. Most of them come unaccompanied and wish to create memories of unforgettable moments among a new group of friends. The age range of our travelers is wide. I can assure you that the atmosphere is very fun and relaxed and that, by the end of this trip, you’ll have made new friends.
