This is an ideal trip for people without much experience in sea kayaking as the area that we will paddle is one of the calmest in Greece. Warm water year round. Paddlers very new to the sport are more than welcome. There will be enough time for practising rescues & coaching as well. Overnight in small apartments & hotels.
Apart from the small villages and the few little towns that will visit during our paddle we will have enough time to explore Nafplio city & Palamidi.
Palamidi is a fortress to the east of the city. Nestled on the crest of a 216-metre high hill, the fortress was built by the Venetians during their second occupation of the area. The view from the top is outstanding.
Nafplio was the capital of the first Hellenic republic and of the kingdom of Greece, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834.
The whole kayaking expedition is about 100km. This equates to about 20 km/day in 5 days.
- Fit enough to paddle up to 20km/day
- Been able to track kayak in straight line
