"One of the World's Best Holidays"

Explore Your Potential and Meet Like-Minded People
This is 'the holiday you can take home with you' . . .

Described by The Sunday Times as ‘One of the World's Best Holidays', Skyros offers the independent traveller the holiday that opens the heart, expands the mind, recharges the body and uplifts the spirit. Skyros, now in its 40th year, was Europe's first ever course-based holiday centre and it remains the world leader in its field.

On a Skyros holiday you can start the novel you've been thinking about, create your own artistic masterpiece, join a comedy-improvisation workshop, sing your favourite songs or take a look at what you really need in life. The wide range of courses and activities available includes yogawritingartphotographyhealth & wellbeingwindsurfingpersonal developmentabseilingdancemusic and much more. The holiday is ideal for solo travellers as well as couples, friends and families.

But more than its holiday courses, Skyros thrives on its peerless culture. Within it you can be yourself, reconnect with your essence, express your creativity, laugh as you haven't since childhood and make new friends for life.

You can choose from two holiday centres on the idyllic island of Skyros, Greece: The Skyros Centre and Atsitsa Bay. Or in the UK, try a course taster weekend at The Grange in the Isle of Wight.

The benefits of a Skyros holiday last long after the suntan has faded. They include new friendships and relationships, interests and skills, renewed self-confidence, a fresh outlook or even a whole new way forward. The sense of renewed confidence and excitement about life is palpable.

If this strikes a chord with you, then join us and experience the Skyros magic for yourself.

Poet Hugo Williams described Skyros in The Times Literary Supplement as 'the holiday you can take home with you’. 

Elle magazine described it as ‘magically successful thanks to its unique alchemy of people, settings and ideals.’
