Greece

Kefalonia and Ithaca Kayak Odyssey

10 Day Trip

Magical kayaking in Greece’s Ionian Sea

Our newest Mediterranean adventure explores the Greek islands of Kefalonia and Ithaca. Kefalonia, the largest island in the Ionian chain, is a stunning combination of forested mountains, azure waters and beautiful beaches. Kefalonia is the perfect backdrop for a kayaking holiday with a wild coastline dominated by huge white cliffs, sea caves, hidden coves and picturesque villages to explore.

Ithaca, the mythical island of Odysseus, is a magical island wth secluded coves of crystal-clear water surrounded by lush greenery. The second smallest of the main Ionian islands, Ithaca is reached by a short ferry ride from Kefalonia.

We begin our trip in Lixouri, Kefalonia, a picturesque town situated around the Gulf of Argostoli. Here, you’ll meet your guide for the trip briefing and the first of many delicious meals showcasing the island’s fresh produce and wines. During the trip we base ourselves in guesthouses in different locations on both islands and experience diverse day paddles along the most scenic of coastlines.

Time out from paddling can be spent hiking in the mountains, exploring small villages and dining in local tavernas. Join us on this fantastic odyssey and enjoy the history, culture, stunning scenery and Greece’s legendary hospitality.
