The MarBella Collection is delighted to introduce the Adventure Club at MarBella Elix, a kids and teens club launching at the new MarBella Elix hotel. Opening this spring near Parga, a previously undiscovered region of mainland Greece, MarBella Elix is the latest property to join the MarBella Collection portfolio. The new club will include a kids adventure club (The Argonauts) and a teens adventure club (The Spartans), both designed to transform the way young guests explore the natural beauty of Greece and to provide fun and safe holiday experiences. Carefully tailored for all ages, this new offering has been designed to provide active, unforgettable programme of activities this summer – all centred around the magic of Greek mythology.

Our brand-new hotel lends itself perfectly to adventure and expeditions – which is something we are all in need of now more than ever. We value new discoveries and new relationships, all within a safe and secure environment, and I am excited for our guests to have access to these special and unique holiday experiences that truly highlight the magic of Greece.”
Adventure Club at MarBella Elix
The MarBella Elix Adventure Club will be themed around the heroic tales of Greek gods, goddesses, and legends. The programme will provide adventure through mythical creatures and deities along with an abundance of outdoor activities including orienteering, treasure hunts, bushcraft, and sea kayaking – never before offered by MarBella Collection. With two separate clubs on offer (The Argonauts aged 8-11 years and The Spartans aged 12-15 years) children and teenagers will have the chance to explore different places, learn core skills, make new friends, and develop confidence – all in an exciting atmosphere of adventure.
Adventure Club at MarBella Elix – The Programme
The Adventure Club at MarBella Elix will consist of a full six-day programme (tailored for each age group). This has been designed to maximise the property’s unique location in the heart of nature and surrounded by hidden bays and stunning mountains. Children and teens will have will embark on the Poseidon Adventure, where they can kayak through caves and search for treasure troves to recover Poseidon’s trident that has been wickedly kidnapped by the mischievous water nymphs. The Zeus Mystery will send soldiers marching to the nearby old Citadel, Elina, to search for treasure that was left behind 2,500 years ago when the previous inhabitants were forced to flee Zeus’ wrath. Inspired by Goddess of Hunt and the Wilderness, the Artemis Academy will see children mountain biking in the beautiful nearby woodland where explorers will be taught various outdoor skills. Athena Day will invite kids to get creative with arts and crafts in the hotel’s own woodland site – led by the Goddess of Warfare, the young explorers will enjoy pottery, bread making, wood carving and games of combat archery. Hades’ Quest will take adventurers to nearby the beautiful river Acheron to build and race model boats – and try to find lost coins to return to the nearby Temple of Hades. The week concludes with the Hestia Experience, inspired by The Goddess of the Hearth, children will enjoy a fishing lesson followed lunch in the Woodland Adventure site.
