Skiathos (Greek: Σκιάθος) is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea, the westernmost island of the North Sporades group of islands. Despite its small size, Skiathos is a famous tourist destination. It has more than 60 beaches scattered along its 44 km long coastline, and we will try to visit the more memorable ones.

 

A four-day expedition around the island of Skiathos, a true adventure in the Aegean. Here is where we can find everything a kayak adventurer wants. From turquoise waters and secluded beaches accessible only by water, to caves and lagoons familiar to us from the movie "Mamma Mia".

This event is for all of you who have basic kayaking experience or have attended at least one of our events and feel comfortable kayaking.

During the kayak trips, a beach and snorkel break is provided every hour.

 


Program:

 


Meeting at 00:00 in front of Vasil Levski Stadium, Sofia, leaving at 00:30. In order to make the most of the days and not to wait pointlessly at the border, we will travel at night. Once we arrive at the small port of Katigiorgis in the morning, we will unload the kayaks and move our luggage and food into them.

 

Then, after a short briefing, we will quickly cross the strait to the island while the sea is still calm. Our first break is at Elia Beach where, if the bar is open, we will support ourselves with a cold drink. We then continue to a series of sandy beaches which we will enjoy. For our last stop and overnight we have chosen Lalaria beach, a majestic beach with high cliffs and a natural arch into the sea. The beach is emblematic of Skiathos and is only accessible by water.

 

At the end of the day we prepare dinner and relax. We will sleep under the stars!!!
The paddle that day is about 15 km.

Difficulty level 4 out of 4.

 


After breakfast, we hurry to get the kayaks going before the cruise ships have dumped throngs of tourists on the beach, we continue our tour past cliffs and caves to Xanemos beach - this is the beach that is at the end of the island's airstrip and we will watch planes take off and land a few metres over our heads.

 

When we get bored we continue on and our next stop is in the capital Skiathos where we will replenish our food and water supplies. We'll have lunch at a taverna on the beach then continue our pursuit of the wild beaches. The last stop of the day is on the island of Tsougria - it's a little slice of paradise we can't miss.
We prepare dinner and relax. We will sleep under the stars again!!!
The paddle that day is about 12 km.

Difficulty level 3 out of 4.

 


After breakfast, and this time we won't be in a hurry as we have a full day ahead of us to enjoy the beaches on our way, we continue with our tour of the island and stop for the night at Krifi Ammos beach. The beach has a tavern where we will have dinner. Again, we will sleep under the stars as you are already used to ;)
The rowing distance for the day is 15 km.

Difficulty level 3 out of 4.

 


After breakfast, we will again hurry to get on the kayaks while the sea is still calm and return to the mainland. There will be little paddling this day. When we arrive at Katigiorgis harbour, we all pack up our gear together, load the kayaks onto the trailers and head back to Bulgaria.

 

Expected arrival in front of Vasil Levski Stadium, Sofia is at 21.00.
The rowing distance for the day is 15 km.

Difficulty level 4 out of 4.
