Activity description

Discover the pirate caves of old on this fun-filled sea kayaking tour to Kynouria from Xiropigado village! Welcoming adventurers ages 8 and up, no prior kayaking experience is required. 

The Peloponnese is a large peninsula in southern Greece, connected to the mainland by the narrow Isthmus of Corinth. Known for its rich history, diverse landscapes, and ancient ruins, the Peloponnese is a region of significant cultural and historical importance in Greece. On this guided sea kayaking tour from Xiropigado village, you'll depart from the eastern Peloponnese to the coastline of Kynouria with its ancient pirate caves! 

Your sea kayaking tour begins at the meeting point in Xiropigado port, where you and your group (a maximum of 10 participants) will be greeted by your seasoned instructor. After a safety and itinerary briefing, you'll be given an introduction to sea kayaking and paddling techniques. With your life jacket on, the adventure starts! Under the hot Greek sun, you'll set out into the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea, enjoying the incredible panorama as you paddle. 

During your sea kayaking tour to Kynouria, you'll learn about the formation of these stunning caves and their notorious pirate history. In addition, you'll observe underwater springs, and eddies from gushing water, and experience the tranquillity of deserted and remote beaches where you'll stop for a snack of fresh, seasonal fruits, followed by free time to swim or just relax and savour the moment. At the end of the day, you'll return to the original departure point, happy with your time spent sea kayaking to Kynouria and the mesmerising Eastern Arcadia, in the Peloponnese!
