One week on Greek islands. The itinerary is more for nature lovers, despite Kos's reputation as a party island, with a little island hopping you'll have a very chill vacation with cool nature spots.

Highs & Lows
The natural hot spring in the sea - you should go in the night! The volcanic crater of Nisyros - not a typical scene at all.
Cities in Kos are very touristy, try to opt for staying as much as possible on smaller islands.
This trip is for people who love to be in a chilled out atmosphere and discover beaches, viewpoints and some wonders of nature. You can do all the touristy activities on the island of Kos, but if you prefer some small places and hidden gems, jut hop on a boat like we did, and enjoy the hospitality and kindness that surrounds you when you meet greek people!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I'd shorten the stay on Kos island and make it longer on Nisyros or maybe visit another smaller island (Kalimnos for example) for 2-3 days.
If you find remote beaches bare in mind that there are no showers, so if you'd like to get rid of salt bring an extra bottle of water or wetwipes.
Once you are on an island, don't stay in the town or city. Rent a quad/scooter for at least a day and discover the area. Greek islands are especially amazing when you stumble upon less visited places.
