Ammouliani is a little-known Greek island, the only inhabited island of Halkidiki, near Mount Athos, about 5 hours from Sofia. The name of the island - Ammuliani - means "fine sand", and we will visit by water most of the sandy beaches. The incredible beautiful and wild beaches are its secret charm, so peace and relaxation will be guaranteed. 


Most kayaking events on offer for this destination actually involve camping on the mainland and paddling to the island and back daily, so we will again offer a different experience! We'll be camping at Alykes Campground on the island itself, located on one of the best fine sand beaches - Alykes Beach. This way we will fully enjoy this small exotic island with amazing landscapes, numerous rock formations, hidden small beaches and fascinating snorkeling spots.


The event is open to children over 10 years old, people with no experience, intermediate and advanced, but most importantly have an adventurous spirit.


During the kayak tours, a beach and snorkeling break is provided every hour.

This is also where the kayaking for the day can be completed. If any of the participants wish to take a break, it will be easy and quick to return to the campsite and we will collect the boat in the evening.
After lunch we continue our tour of the island, and our next stop is one of the island's widest wild sandy beaches, Faka beach. On it we will take a longer beach and snorkeling break. Towards the end of the day we finish the tour and head to the campsite for a rest.
