The ideal getaway for travelers from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Athens. The day starts early in the morning, when we pick you up via minivan from your hotel, or a previously arranged point in central Athens. From there we head to the coastal town of Anavyssos, arrive at the beach and our adventure begins. After a short introduction to sea kayaking and a series of group stretching exercises we board two seater kayaks and paddle towards the nearby tiny island of Arsida. Arsida is home to some great deserted beaches as well as a stunning sea cavern, well-hidden on the southern side of the island. The first part of our kayaking trip involves paddling around the island towards the famous Arsida cave. It is a very narrow passage allowing for one kayak at a time to cross. Once there we have plenty of time for rest and a swim in the cavern’s deep blue waters. Midafternoon we get to one of the island’s deserted beaches, hop off our kayaks and, while our crew prepares a delicious salad out of fresh vegetables and local cheeses, you get a chance to unwind on the beach, participate in a variety of activities and swim in crystal clear waters. Late afternoon we pack our gear and head back to the mainland. For those of you with a competitive side, we offer the chance to test your skills in a 300m sea kayaking race!
