Join our unique 3 Days Sea Kayak Tour around the stunning Pringiponisia, (Prince’s Islands) of the Ionian Sea.

Secluded beaches, crystal-blue waters, stunning coves and hidden sea caves await to be discovered! On our 3 Days Sea Kayak Tour we will have the opportunity to venture into the big blue of the Ionian Sea, hop from island to island, have great swims and take in the stunning natural environment of this corner of the world. Paddle, swim, set camp on remote golden beaches and enjoy the stunning starry sky of Greece.

We will paddle to some of the most beautiful islands of the Ionian. Bustling Lefkada, uninhabited Thilia, tranquil Meganisi, legendary Skorpios and wild Madouri, are the true gems of the Ionian!

This adventure is ideal for active travelers seeking authentic destinations off the beaten path.

Day 1: From Nydri to Meganisi via Skorpios

Today we will hop on our sea kayaks and leave behind the popular coastal town of Nydri, paddling in the impressive inner archipelago of Lefkada. We will explore the famous Prince’s Islands (Prigiponissia) named Madouri and Scorpios. We will have the chance to snorkel in the rich fishing grounds of the uninhabited islet of Thilia.

Then we will make our way to the picturesque island of Meganisi and discover numerous sheltered coves. Paddling along the lush coastline, we will arrive in the pebbled beach of Agios Ioannis, where we set up camp and prepare a delicious bbq, with all sorts of Mediterranean delicacies. We will enjoy these unique moments in nature and dream of tomorrow’s adventures into our comfy tents.

Day 2: Traverse Ionian archipelago to Mikros Gialos

We start the day with a delicious breakfast on the beach and a swim in the turquoise waters of Agios Ioannis. Then we will ride our sea kayaks and traverse the archipelago to explore the numerous hidden treasures of Rouda bay in Lefkada. We will visit well-hidden sea caves of the area, swim in calm crystal blue waters and explore the unique seabed with our snorkeling gear. Today’s adventure will end on the small pebbly beach of Mikros Gialos in Rouda Bay and the homonymous settlement. We set up camp and prepare all together another delicious dinner with traditional local products.

The beautiful little bays and colorful natural coves in the area are ideal for swimming and snorkeling, while the green isolated pebbled beaches, like Desimi are a haven from the heat of the summer sun.
