About Altersail

We are Altersail, a travel and experience company that is based on Heraklion, Crete.

Behind the company, there are people that grew up, live and work here. We are travelers, sailors, parents, food lovers, and nature advocates.

Our Story

Sailing is our passion that gradually became our profession, in which we created sailing tours in Crete and around Greece.
But that was not enough. We soon realized that we want to give a more holistic experience to our guests. As travellers ourselves, we are looking to grasp as much of the culture of each place that we visit. The history, a natural trail, a tasty food corner or a local person to talk to.

Small things that add to a greater experience.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to transmit some of our parts, to take back home. Travelling creates memories. So having a great memory of a place that you just visited with the people that you love makes it priceless.
