2018 Skin Cancer Forum - Greek Odyssey

An incredible journey through Greece on land and sea

Prior to the 2018 IDS World Congress in Thessaloniki

Dear colleagues and friends,

Don't miss the unique opportunity to join us on an unforgettable cultural tour through Greece prior to the IDS World Congress in Thessaloniki in June 2018!

Our Greek Odyssey has been planned with the assistance of the special travel agency Tempo and Dr Chris Clifopoulos who has cherry-picked for us the most beautiful locations, historical sites, and cultural and culinary experiences from his home country. The 15-day journey will cover land and sea, offering you the most of this beautiful country. 

We start on May 30th, 2018 with three days of sightseeing in Athens. We will then move to a private charter yacht for a 7-day Greek isles cruise before we return to Athens and head north to Thessaloniki visiting ancient cities like Delphi and Olympus. 

Apart from experiencing Greece’s breathtaking beauty, the trip will be made even more special as you will be joined by like-minded peers and old friends. As the organised activities force us to keep to a smaller group, the trip is limited to 40 places (boat capacity is 20 cabins) which will fill fast!

I hope you will be able to join us on this fabulous journey!  

Kind regards
Paul Elmslie
