Discovery trip to Kithira
29 November - 5 December 2019
Kythera is one of the most chaming among the greek islands: positioned south
it's considered the ideal border between Ionian and Aegean sea.
Renowned also as the Venus isle, since she was supposedly born here,
Kythera is exposed in its northern quarter to strong winds for almost every month of the year:
its variegated shores, with the abundance of beaches, caves and safe natural coves, it's ideal for a kayak trip!
The island of Kythera can be circumnavigated in five days, since it's total
costal lenght of 130 km.
The average daily distance will be between 20 and 30 Km, and could include a quick diversion to the close isle of Elafonisos.
This trip is meant only for skilled and open-to-adventure paddlers, with experience equivalent to a Coastal Sea Kayak Award,
and it is strongly advised to meet Tatiana and paddle with her at least for a couple of days before starting the guided trip!
