From private yacht tours of The Garden of the Gods, to underwater photography lessons, to off-road motocross adventures, there’s no shortage of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Sail Delos, The Garden of the Gods, on a luxury yacht
Mykonos may be one of the most cosmopolitan destinations in the world today, however historically it was overshadowed by a tiny island to its southwest, Delos. Known as The Garden of the Gods, Delos was a beacon of religion, trade, culture and multiculturalism in Ancient Greece. Today, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its ‘outstanding universal value’. Pilgrims from all over the world would flock to holy sanctuary Delos, the birthplace of Apollo – god of music, truth and light – and his sister, Artemis – the goddess of the hunt.
Eager to share this bright chapter of history with the world, the Myconian Collection has curated a luxurious experience to introduce guests to the glory of Delos. Setting sail from Mykonos on a private yacht, guests are able to marvel at fantastic statues, ancient houses and temples with local insights provided an experienced tour guide.
Release your inner-hipster during a local brewery tour
Showcasing an authentic, trendy side of Mykonos, The Mykonos Brewing Company opens its doors to a select few Myconian Collection guests to share the secrets of craft beer.
“From stunning IPAs to Belgian caramel wheat beer, your senses will be brought to life by the smell of hops, the sounds of glasses clinking and the taste of stunning samples. You’ll also find out everything you wanted to know about the history of Mykonos spirits and beers and the process of making everyone’s favourite drink, all the way from sourcing ingredients to enjoying a perfectly brewed pint,” said Vangelis Daktylides, General Manager of Myconian Ambassador Hotel.

Capture the dream with underwater photography
In the age of social media, we are all becoming a bit immune to typical holiday photographs: stunning sunsets, emblematic landmarks, carefree shots on sandy beaches. However, it’s less typical to find holiday shots taken underwater.
As part of its unique experiences package, Myconian Collection presents a chance to take part in a curated experience of underwater photography. Alongside an expert team, guests can take a boat to the perfect spot for a photography session – where they can dive into the crystal-clear waters of the Agean to let the bottom of the sea reveal its kaleidoscope of colours and magnificence. Guests can take an exclusive peek at the wondrous aquatic world, obtain pictures of themselves in a brand-new light and make memories for everyone to see – under the sea!
