Sail the Greek islands with Peter Maneas as he takes his superyacht to 227 of Greece's inhabited islands. My Greek Odyssey is a 13-part series where Peter explores their rich history, culture, cuisine, and people as well as their hidden secrets and surprises.
Join Peter in season two as he climbs back aboard his beautiful boat Mia Zoi, and heads to a region of Greece he's not spent much time in before. The plan is to skip from island to island, taking in the sites of the Northern Aegean and Western Cycladic.
First stop – Thassos. It’s the northernmost of the major Greek Islands, with the mainland only about 7 kilometres away.
This episode sees Peter finishing up his time on Thassos, before heading to the Holiest place in Greece, Mount Athos, where 20 monasteries sit on a 300 square kilometer peninsula.
This episode continues Peter’s time in Samothrace. It’s an island frequented by adventure and nature lovers alike.
In this episode Peter will be exploring 7,000 years of history. From one of the earliest settlements in Europe, to a modern day air force base. Plus he’ll learn about the local cuisine, and landscapes of Limnos, that make it so special.

In this episode Mia Zoi heads south-east, across to the island of Lesvos. Sitting just off the coast of Turkey, there are obvious influences from its neighbour. But like any Greek island, it has a truly unique personality, which Peter discovers during his time there.
Peter Makes his way to the capital of Lesvos, Mitlini. It’s quite the contrast to the rest of the island, with loads of people and the noise and excitement that come with it. From there he’s headed south to the island of Psara, then to Chios, the birthplace of Homer.
Peter’s exploration continues as he goes both above and below water to show you the sites, sounds and tastes of Chios.
Having travelled through the Northern Aegean, Peter heads into the second leg of the journey, moving down to the Western Cyclades. It’s a region of the Mediterranean that doesn’t often have a light shined on it, which is all the more reason he was keen to check it out.
In this Episode, we’re heading west to Kythnos. It’s only 100 kilometers from Athens, which makes it a popular destination for mainland Greeks.
In this episode we’ll be taking you on a journey across Serifos, and experiencing everything this little island has to offer.
In episode 11, apart from getting a cooking lesson from a master, we’ll be walking from one side of Sifnos to the other. Peter is going to see and do as much as he can on this slice of Greek paradise.
In the final episode of series two, Peter is finishing his time in the Western Cyclades by exploring the islands of Kimolos and Milos. Despite their close proximity to one another, they’re in stark contrast.
