This pilgrimage is free and open to everyone who is fascinated to see and experience unique places and to admire some of the spiritual treasures being protected from the monks during the centuries, as a part of Mount Athos tradition.
According to the law known as “Avaton” (in Greek meaning a place where the entrance is prohibited), only men can set foot on Mount Athos and even for them it isn’t a simple procedure because you can’t just get there whenever you want. It is necessary to obtain a special permission called “diamonitirion” in order to visit the territory and the monasteries of Mount Athos and that needs to be issued quite some time in advance.
So not only for women who not allowed to enter the monastic state but also for men, this pilgrimage cruise to Mount Athos is a once in a lifetime experience.
The cruise starts at 11:00 from Ouranoupolis. During the Pilgrimage Cruise we stop in front of a monastery and 1-2 monks are coming onboard with the precious Holy Relics.
Duration : 4 hours
Hours : 11:00 – 15:00
