A guided half day Sea Kayaking trip along the coast of Greece’s prettiest and most romantic town.

Nafplio, located less than two hours’ drive by car from Athens is one of the most beautiful towns in the Peloponnese as well as one of the most romantic cities all over Greece. It occupies a waterside location between the massive principal fortress of Palamidi, the smaller Akronafplia, and the diminutive Bourtzi on an islet west of the old town. The town is surrounded by a remarkable landscape and a great way to see it is from the sea.

Our sea kayaking trip starts at Karathona beach where you meet your guide. You will be briefed in detail regarding all the important trip info and safety advice after which you will start your paddling adventure on a crystal-clear sea. What is unique when Sea Kayaking around Nafplio is the view of three medieval forts creating remarkable scenery. We shall paddle towards Bourtzi, built in the 15th century on an islet right in front of the port. Watching the Unesco World heritage fortress of Palamidi and the town beneath from the sea level is a remarkable experience. We carry on paddling along and under the hill of Akronauplia fortress with spectacular views of the cliffs covered in prickly pear cactus. After some kayaking, we shall make a stop for swimming and snorkeling, and those of you who are even more adventurous will be able to do cliff diving! Here we shall also taste our homemade picnic of local delicacies and relax under the sun. After this energy pumped stop, we will circle back around the hill and return back to the town.
