Crystal clear waters with an impressive view to the White mountains (48 summits above 2000 meters!) with remote beaches and of course sunshine! This 10 days expedition is suitable to experienced paddlers only, rough seas and strong winds are guaranteed!
If you are comfortable in sea state 4 (about 2-meter waves), winds up to Beaufort scale 5, and enjoy wild camping then look no further.
Transport from Heraklion city (the capital of the island) is provided for free, from other locations please get in touch with us.
EXPERIENCE NEEDED: ADVANCED
The whole expedition is about 250km. This equates to about 25km/day in 10 days, however bad weather days will make it necessary to increase the daily kilometers up to 35 or more.
- Fit enough to paddle up to 35km/day
- Comfortable in sea state 4 (~2 meter waves)
- Have effective support strokes
- Able to control the boat downwind & across the wind
Notes: We will meet near the city of Chania around 10-11 am. You should arrive in Chania the day before. If you find a cheaper flight to Heraklion, transfer is provided for free as we are starting from Heraklion city and can get up to 5 persons in my car for free. For a larger group please contact us to discuss the best possible scenario. On the last day of the trip we will return back to Heraklion by our car and will be glad to drop you in the airport if your flight is on same date. The best place to fly to is Heraklion airport as it is much easier from there to deal with transport.
