Activity description

This fun-filled sea kayaking adventure takes you to some of the most beautiful places on Kythnos Island! All levels of experience are welcome. This 4-5-hour experience also includes a delicious lunch and a chance to swim/snorkel in the crystal-clear blue waters at some amazing locales.

The story of Kythnos Island (also known as Thermia) dates back before antiquity, to prehistoric times. In fact, during this excursion, you will stop at Vriokastro, an ancient port and the island's prehistoric settlement. 

After you've met your friendly guide at Episkopi Beach, you will receive a safety briefing, followed by basic kayaking and paddling techniques. Once you've put on your life jacket and stored your belongings in a dry bag, the adventure begins! You and your group will make your way toward Vriokastro (a 20-minute paddle), where you will stop for snorkelling, swimming, and cave exploring. But that's not all! You'll also have the opportunity to relax in Kolona Beach's natural thermal springs, followed by a delicious lunch.

With your batteries recharged, you'll take a short hike to the Agios Loukas Islet, where you'll be amazed at the stunning panoramic views. Don't forget your camera! You'll paddle back to Episkopi Beach rejuvenated and satisfied after spending a wonderful day on the water.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned paddler, kayaking in Kythnos from Episkopi Beach is definitely one of the best ways to enjoy your time in Greece! Book your next adventure today.
