TOUR DESCRIPTION

This kayak Athens day tour will take you to the most renowned and interesting area of the Athens Riviera, around the Kavouri (which means”crab”) peninsula, some 20 kms South of the Athens city centre.

You will be comfortably picked-up at 8.30 am and our tour leader will briefly explain the day’s program and provide you with some practical info. You will then head South and arrive at a beach in the Kavouri area. There you will meet our local kayak instructor. After a short briefing, if novel to this sport, you will be all set to your sea adventure. Depending on the weather conditions and your skill, you will get to see nearby islets and sea caves where to take pics and swim if you want to, ending in one of the many beaches of Kavouri peninsula, after approx. 2/ 3 hours of paddling. The kayak sea tour itinerary and length will depend on the group’s skills and preference and it is, therefore, tentative, as safety comes first.

At the beach there will be some time to rest or swim. Once back on the shore, you will get prepared to set off to Vouliagmenis Lake, possibly the area’s main attraction. The lake is an impressive natural phenomenon created most probably by the collapse of a limestone cave due to an earthquake some 500 years ago. There you will have the chance to swim in its thermal brackish and lukewarm waters, the perfect relaxation treatment after 3 hours of intensive kayaking. You can also opt for an extra 30′ relaxing massage (30 €) in a massage boutique that can help you recover from the effort before heading to the nearby Vouliagmenis Lake. If hungry, the bar-restaurant offers great dishes of Greek Mediterranean food (your choice, not included). In the afternoon you will be dropped off at your place.
