The area of the Ionian Islands is extremely attractive and the imprint of the Venetian presence in the local architecture adds to the charm and uniqueness of the place. One of our favourite destinations for kayaking adventures in the area is definitely the island of Lefkada. All along the west coast of the island, the colour of the sea ranges from deep blue, blending into different shades of emerald and turquoise, to sky blue. It's a sight that lasts a lifetime and is a favourite of divers and photographers. 

 

During the event there will be kayaking, cave visits, cliff jumping, diving, delicious food, nice drinks in the breeze and a great mood.


The event is open to children over 12, people with no experience, intermediate and advanced, but the most important thing is to have an adventurous spirit.


A beach and dive break is provided every hour.


Program:

 


- On the evening of 21.05.2024 we meet at 21:30 in front of Vasil Levski Stadium, Sofia, we leave at 22:00 and, in order to make the most of our days and not to wait pointlessly at the border, we will travel at night. Once we arrive in Lefkada in the morning, we will have breakfast and coffee in Nidri, where we will buy fresh fish from the local fish market and replenish our food supplies.

 

We check in at Santa Maura campsite, which is located on the fabulous Desimi beach. We will unload our equipment and kayaks and after a short break we will do a briefing and exploratory kayak tour until sunset. In the evening we return to the campsite to have dinner and relax.
The rowing distance for the day is 6 km.

Difficulty level 1 out of 4.

 


Blue Cave:
We have breakfast and kayak across the turquoise-ink sea to a unique cave entered through a narrow slit in the rocks. The gallery inside is dimly lit, but the light coming in from outside gives the feeling of boundless blue. Throughout the day we will enjoy beautiful rock formations and relax on wild beaches. The area is particularly conducive to diving, rock climbing and cliff jumping.

 

For the evening we again plan a free program. We return to the campsite for dinner and rest.
The rowing distance for the day is 18 km.

Difficulty level 3 out of 4.

 


Meganisi Island:
On this day the paddling will be leisurely. We will head to the small town of Spartohori, which is the capital of the island. We will reach a harbour named Porto Spilia. There we leave the kayaks and take a short walk to the settlement, which is located at the highest part of the island. The first sight we see is a huge stone terrace where centuries ago a fortress was located to protect the island from pirates. From there we have a stunningly beautiful view of the Scorpidi archipelago and Scorpio Island. We'll have lunch at a tavern, then return to the campsite in our kayaks.
In the evening we will visit the town of Nidri in an organized van and have dinner in a local tavern.
The rowing distance for the day is 13 km.

Difficulty level 2 out of 4.

 


West Coast:
Excitement and wind permitting, we will paddle along the coast from Gialos Beach to the famous Porto Catsiki Beach and back. We will rest on one of the best beaches in Greece, Egremni, which is 2,5 kilometers long and covered with very clean light sand. This is definitely a breathtaking place with its turquoise waters and high cliffs. We'll have lunch and a beer at Porto Katsiki, and in the evening we'll have dinner at a tried and tested taverna in Vasiliki.
The rowing distance for the day is 19 km.

Difficulty level 3 out of 4.
