Sea Kayaking – Day trips

Fiskardo – Ithaki (Round Trip)

Depending on weather conditions and group experience this trip will either be a close coastline paddle out of Fiskardo and then loop back or a short crossing to Ithaki and back – Fiskardo -“The St Tropez of Kefalonia” offers a very different feel and experience, most of the buildings are pre the -1953 earthquake, cafes are neatly organized for the modern traveller, offering old world fishing village charm alongside a modern and popular Ionian sailing destination – we paddle along a diverse green and jagged limestone coastline with small bays and white rock beaches.

Distance on this trip can be adjusted from 6 – 15km and time (6-8 hours) depends on route taken, distance chosen and the time needed for drinking your GREEK coffee, have a walk along the waterfront and browse in the souvenir shops.
