Sea kayak holidays in Greece

Come on a sea kayak adventure holidays trip to one of the world's top 10 kayaking destinations in Lefkas islands in Greece.  You can read the 2011 article of TIMES here

Explore dramatic coastal cliffs, fascinating sea caves, unspoiled beaches, & turquoise bays of sparsely inhabited isles. Visit traditional fishing villages, Venetian fortresses, & ancient Orthodox monasteries. Immerse yourself in Greek culture, Homer’s mythology, & ancient history.

See why shipping tycoon Onasis and wife Jackie O’ chose their island retreat here, why Madonna wanted to buy it, and why Lord Byron just couldn’t leave.

Nature, culture, ancient Greek history and mythology- its all here. Ionian Explorers tours appeal to sophisticated travelers and adventurers alike. Site seeing by kayak is an intimate and tranquil way to explore the less commercial and culturally rich Ionian Islands, which lie just off the west coast of mainland Greece, opposite Italy.

IDEAL LOCATION: The region’s topography is made for kayak touring. Our kayak operations are based around lush green and mountainous Lefkada island in the central Ionian sea, and encompass nearby Ithaki and Kefalonia. These larger isles are surrounded by dozens of small, sparsely populated isles which lie close together. They present a convenient island hopping circuit for our kayaking tours.

SEA KAYAK TOURS TO SUIT EVERYONE: From novices to experienced kayakers, and we use comfortable and stable double sea kayaks designed for touring. For tours graded 'easy-moderate', kayaking experience is not necessary, though basic fitness and good physical condition is- as our itineraries also include trekking up steep hills. We run through short instruction & basic kayaking skills in sheltered Vasiliki bay at the start of your tour. Naturally for the longer tours graded 'experienced', participants should have at least some kayaking experience, be relatively fit and able to swim, though there is no age limit.

Best season to sea kayak? We recommend late May to mid June & September to mid October, when days are not too hot, and the sea temperature is warm. July and August months we generally kayak in the early morning and late afternoon when the heat is less intense.
