The island of Zakynthos, also called Zante, is the third largest of the Ionian islands in the Ionian Sea. Probably everyone has heard and maybe dreamed about its beautiful caves, beaches and sea. The island is also called by the Venetians the "Flower of the East" and is the third largest island in the Ionian Sea, one of the most visited tourist destinations. We will experience the atmosphere of this corner of paradise and within 5 days we will tour its most beautiful places; - The Blue Caves, Navagio Beach, Keri Caves. We will try to see live the Carreta Carreta turtles or some monk seals.

----------------------------------------
Day one, Tuesday, 16.07.2024: 

On the evening of 16.07.2024 the meeting is at 20:00 in front of Vasil Levski stadium, Sofia, we leave at 20:30 and, to make the most of the days and to avoid waiting pointlessly at the border, we will travel at night. 

----------------------------------------

Day two, Wednesday, 17.07.2024:

Morning arrival in the town of. 20.30. We take a ferry crossing to Zakynthos. We check in at the Zante campsite. After that we will make a transfer to Hygia beach. We will unload our equipment and kayaks and after a briefing we will tour the caves in the area. There is no other place like this on Zakynthos. Hygia is a picturesque little beach, unique for its water, which gives many the reason to call it the natural spa of Zakynthos.

In one of the caves near the beach, there is a source of sulphur, which gives the sea water its unique properties for the island.
For the evening we provide a free program. We return to the campsite for dinner and rest. 

The rowing for the day is 6 km.

----------------------------------------
Day three, Thursday, 18.07.2024:

This day we will make a transfer to the southern part of the island - to Lagana Bay. We will visit the caves of Marathonisi Island, then head to the western part of the island. We will pass through several large and beautiful arches, enter several cave tunnels. We will pass under the arch of Cape Marathia, where we will take a break, and our final destination is the Kerry Caves. These are a group οf sea caves and cκaal arches οf οctrοves that are worth visiting. At the end of today's adventure, wе paddle back tо Kerry's harbour and thеrе back tо the campsite, leaving уоu wіth fantastic memories оf thе day.
There are no restaurants or tavernas on our way and you will need to bring your own food.

For the evening we again plan a free programme. We return to the campsite for dinner and rest. 

The paddle for the day is 15 km.

----------------------------------------
Day four, Friday, 19.07.2024:

We make a transfer to Agios Nikolaos beach, and in the afternoon head to the so-called Blue Caves, which are located on one of the western shores of Zakynthos. They can only be reached by sea and it's a trip to remember for a lifetime. We'll pass by a stunning series of arches and caves, silently nestled in the turquoise embrace of the Ionian Sea. The caves also tempt snorkelling, and the view that the sunlight and water create, merging into a kaleidoscope of different shades of turquoise blue, is not to be missed.
Before the blue caves, there is a rest area where we will have lunch and take a break. The place is an ennobled rock massif with a tavern at its highest part and numerous springboards to jump from different heights, which we will enjoy.
After lunch we drive back to Agios Nikolaos, find a beach to wait for the sunset, then head back to the campsite.
For the evening we again plan a free program. We return to the campsite for dinner and rest. 

Paddling for the day is 8 km

----------------------------------------

Day five, Saturday, 20.07.2024:

We have a real challenge this day. After breakfast we head to Porto Vromi bay. From there is the shortest approach to Navagio beach for kayaking. Whether we will be able to reach it depends a lot on the weather conditions and the sea itself. If there is a swell we will go to the beach with the wreck of the motorboat, then paddle around the bay itself, which is also very beautiful and full of caves and bizarre formations.
If the sea is calm by the time we get to the ship, you will enjoy the most magnificent views that can be seen from the water. The experience is unique and I wish everyone to enjoy it. 
It is forbidden to accost the beach with the ship due to the danger of stonefalls, so we will explore it from the water and return to rest on the adjacent beach. Again, there are no restaurants or tavernas on our way and you will need to bring your own food. So on the way back to the campsite we will have dinner at one of the best tavernas in the region.   
For the evening we are again planning a free program. We return to the campsite for rest. 

The paddling for the day is 15 km

----------------------------------------
Day six, Sunday, 21.07.2024:

We assemble at 9.00 am and all together we collect the equipment, wash and load the kayaks on the trailers and head am the capital. If we are expeditious with the equipment stowage we will have about 2 hours before the ferry departs to explore and walk around. 
We then take the ferry to the mainland and back to Bulgaria. 
Expected arrival in front of Vasil Levski Stadium is after midnight.

Note: The organizers reserve the right to change the program depending on weather conditions in order to ensure maximum safety of the participants.
