Explore Lefkada, Greece

19-30 October 2019

Ever fancied warm water kayaking? Ever wanted to sit in the sun drying off after a cooling dip at the start of lunch? Ever wanted to perfect your roll or recues in warm water that’s not the pool?

South Skye Sea Kayak are looking to put together a small team of 6 kayakers to explore the beautiful Greek coastline of Lefkada, surrounding islands and coasts from 19 to 30 October 2019.

Exploring Lefkada by Kayak

The trip will start in Athens, where we will meet you with a mini bus and travel out to Lefkada arriving early in the morning for breakfast and a snooze, followed by a local day exploring the coast, sunbathing and working on group & personal skills.

Day 2 will see us pack up our boats and head out on expedition Greek style for 8 nights taking our food and tents with us.

Accommodation will be a mixture of camping (4) and apartments (6) with the last night spent in Athens where we can explore the city before flying home.

Relaxing on the beach ion the afternoon sun

The nights that we are staying in apartments we will enjoy delicious Greek cuisine from the grill in local tavernas.

Lefkada has a stunning coastline with caves, arches, white beaches, turquoise waters, cliffs, picturesque villages, not to mention the warm water, gorgeous sunsets, ice cream, Greek wine, cold beer, olives, grilled foods and cosy cafés.

There will be options to complete British Canoeing Personal Performance Awards Sea Kayak Award and Coastal Sea Kayak Award over the trip.

We will be flying in from Edinburgh where we can meet you or you can fly from your local airport to meet us in Athens.

The cost will be £1000, which includes transfer from and to the airport, kayak and equipment hire, camping equipment hire, breakfasts and lunches every day and dinners on the nights we are camping, accommodation (shared) and guiding/coaching.

If you would like more information and a chance to join us on this coach & leader led trip, then please drop us an e-mail.

We will be working with our friends at Odysea. Check out their page for more Greek paddling opportunities
