The Mamma Mia Family Tour
Are you or any of your family members a Mamma Mia fan? If you ever caught yourself daydreaming of the beautiful island of Kalokairi or humming lyrics of the Mamma Mia songs, then, it’s time to live the real ‘Mamma Mia’ family experience on the majestic island of Skopelos.
Where is the Kalokairi island in Greece? How can I visit it with my family?
Although there is no Greek island actually called “Kalokairi” (“summer” in Greek), the locations where the popular musical was filmed, are more than real. In fact, the primary location of Mamma Mia is on Skopelos, one of the most beautiful islands of the Greek Sporades in the northwest Aegean Sea.
Join our Mamma Mia Family Tour and spend a memorable day with the kids while visiting all spots of Skopelos featured in the movie.
Your Private Mamma Mia Family Tour will start with a relaxed drive across the beautiful west coast of Skopelos until your reach the famous chapel of Agios Ioannis Kastri, the so-called Mamma Mia wedding church. Agios Ioannis is the place where Donna sings to Sam ‘The Winner Takes It All’.
This picturesque small chapel is built on the top of a rock offering amazing views of the Aegean Sea. Although you will need to climb 199 steps to reach the chapel, we feel that it’s really worth the effort. Besides the stunning views from the top, visiting Agios Ioannis will also give you a real taste of the Mamma Mia carefree atmosphere.
After visiting the chapel where Sophie wants to get married, you will head towards the gorgeous beach of Kastani. Before reaching Kastani beach you will take a short stop at an olive press close to Glossa Village. There, you and the kids will learn some interesting facts about the production of Skopelos’ virgin olive oil.
As soon as you reach Kastani beach, both you and the kids will be amazed by the breathtaking natural scenery and its crystal clear waters. From the very first moment you step on Kastani, you will sense why the Mamma Mia production team chose this beach as one of the major filming spots of the movie.
After you enjoy a rejuvenating family swim and listen to interesting in-depth information about the several Mamma Mia! scenes that took place on Kastani beach, you can relax with the kids at the cozy beach bar and enjoy a refreshing drink while gazing at the unique beauty around you.
Your next stop will be the picturesque port of Agnontas on the south part of the island. Nestled in a beautiful bay, Agnontas took its name from the Olympic runner Agnon. Both you and the kids can enjoy a swim in the calm, crystal clear waters of Agnontas.
You may also enjoy delicious fresh fish dishes at one of the small taverns located on the beach. Choose a table right by the water and relax under the shade of the pine trees that literally touch the sea. The feeling is magnificent.
On your way back to Skopelos town, you will gaze from a distance the cape of Amarandos, the so-called three trees, due to the three pine trees that stand tall at the end of a white rocky gulf, facing the sea.
Join our Mamma Mia Family tour, feel the carefree lifestyle featured in the movie and collect family memories that will last forever.
