Multi Day Trips & Expeditions

We run a number of multi-day trips and Sailing-Kayaking expeditions in the islands of Greece. Such trips offer the added pleasure of wild camping or sailing, the element of adventure and the experience of spending long times in the nature, away from modernities we're used to in everyday life. 

Multi-day sea kayaking trips are for sure one of the best ways to connect with nature and experience the Greek seas.

In detail:  

Kayaking

Atop the yacht we carry our sea kayaks and their equipment:

  • Tandem sit in sea kayaks (Rainbow Atlantis 5,50m)
  • Sprayskirts (Peak Uk)
  • PFD's (Peak UK)
  • Split paddles (Werner)
  • Pumps & Safety equipment (VHF, repair/first aid kits etc)

Once on location we put the sea kayaks in the water to paddle along the sheltered coastline and witness remote beaches, crystal clear water and impressive rock formations or sea caves. The sailing boat may be waiting for us at the end of our route. Paddling distances can range from 5 to 20km depending on our preferences, available time and weather conditions. We will make stops to rest, swim and snorkel. Back on board the yacht we get comfortable, rest and enjoy the simplicity of living afloat.

 

Sailing

The boat, a Jeannau Sun Odyssey 43, is equipped to comfortably accommodate and safely travel us in the Greek seas. We will meet in Paros island and take off to visit the following islands*:

  • Antiparos
  • Folegandros
  • Poliegos
  • Kimolos
  • Milos

*Itinerary and islands to be visited are subject to weather conditions.

In each island we have great options to paddle, visit villages, see archaeological sites and anchor in remote bays. From island to island depending on the wind conditions we will make the most with sailing and everyone will be able to participate in that process. The size of the boat and spirit of this trip is for a joint powers-teamwork type of vacation as the boat is a more enjoyable and efficient transportation mean if all members let a hand and get involved.

 

Accommodation & food

Accommodation is in the boat in double bed cabins with one toilet/shower per two cabins. Cabins are equipped with bed linen and towels and the galley (kitchen) is capable of hosting a great cooking variety. You are able to make your own food (breakfast, lunch, snacks) and we can make a group menu for the week. We surely take in charge several meals as we love to prepare and offer you tastes which are connected with the marine and fishermen culture of Greece.

When the time is right we enjoy snacks like mezes, small bites of Greek products which are usually accompanied by a local spirit. After a day of activity, food and relaxation we are ready to welcome a bright starry night whilst anchored on a secluded bay.
