We design and carry out tailor-made pilgrimage tours to Mount Athos - the Earthly Domain of the Most Holy Mother of God, where she abides to this day. Our work is based on long-standing experience, accumulated knowledge, strong ties with the monasteries of Athos, but above all, deep faith. Our goal is not only to acquaint you with the history of Athos and its shrines; our task is to organize a pilgrimage tour that will allow you to sense the holiness and grace reigning on the Holy Mountain, through them becoming a little closer to God. Athos.Guide will become a faithful companion on your pilgrimage to the holy land of Athos.

Athos Monasteries

Athos Monasteries

The walls of Athos monasteries carefully preserve the memory of both the heyday of Mount Athos monasticism and the dark pages of history that tell of the raids and tragic devastations of monasteries, cells, scetes and kalyves. However, despite everything, life here has never stopped completely. Even in the hardest of times, it continued to smolder like a vigil lamp light, in order to kindle a bright light afterwards.

Mount Athos for women

Mount Athos for women

According to the Charter of the Holy Mountain, only men can visit Mount Athos. Women are forbidden to enter the territory of the monastic republic. However, nowadays women who wish to get closer to the monastic republic and experience the sanctity of this place can take a cruise along the Holy Mount Athos shores. The ships approach closely the monasteries of Athos coastal line. For those who cannot visit Mount Athos, the monks of the Holy Mountain bring the miraculous icons and relics of the saints to the cruise ships.
