Kayak Sporades

Sporades Island hopping at its best! The Sporades is a group of Greek islands in the northwest Aegean sea. The longest crossing on the trip is more or less 12 km; you don’t need to have experience in open crossings but you do need to be able to paddle 2-3 hours without landing.


The whole kayaking expedition is about 130-150km. This equates to about 25km/day in 6 days., however bad weather days will make it necessary to increase the daily kilometres up to 35 or more.

You should have a solid assisted rescue (any).


The trip fee includes all of the paddling equipment. High quality composite kayaks from Nigel Dennis & 3kymia are available. There are also plastic Valley Etains 17-5 & 17-7 for those that prefer them.

The price does not include flights, this must be booked by you. Food is also not covered in the price.


The expedition is self catering. Usually we each look after our own breakfast, lunch and snacks and prepare a group evening meal in turn.

Meals in seaside towns, or beach side taverna's, are a possibility but not every day if weather is bad and we have to change the plan. You will be informed on time anyway by our guide about getting or not supplies.
During off season we will need carry supplies for at least 3 days.


You need to flight in Athens to join this trip. Thessaloniki is also an option but then you will have to arrange yourself the transfer to the starting point in Pilio region. This is about 300km and 4 hours driving to get an idea. 
You can also leave your luggage in a secure place with us and take them back once we return from the kayaking trip.
