Nafplio is a seaport town located in southern Greece, beside the Mediterranean Sea. It's one of the most picturesque cities in Greece with its Venetian architecture and the first capital of modern Greece.

Nauplie is a historic town which was once occupied by the Byzantines, the Franks, the Venetians and the Turks. They have left behind some remains, including two fortresses, Acronauplia and Palamidi.

With a kayak we paddled around Nafplio and its magnificient beaches. While paddling, our guide told us in a fresh and smiling way about the four castles that we could see. On our way back we stopped at a small beach, where we snorkled and enjoyed a lovely peace of cake and watermelon. We were in a group with others which was absolutely fine as the there was plenty for all of us. The kayaking itself was not too exhausting, especially because Alex gave us great tips how to paddle so that we wouldn‘t get too tired.

The activity was really nice and exciting. The jet ski can reach velocities up to 60km/hour.

What’s not to love about kayaking through parts of the Agean Sea to see some old forts and mostly private beaches? Everything about the experience was just amazing, and I’d wholeheartedly recommend kayaking with the guys at PanExpeditions!
An amazing kayaking experience! Perfect for a family outing. The site is incredible, and exploring the underwater city with snorkeling is super fun and easy👌!

Experiencing a week of kayaking across vivid blue seas and camping on the beach under the guidance of an incredibly competent and generous instructor has been an unparalleled journey. I wholeheartedly recommend PanExpeditions to those eager to explore the Greek coast by kayak and acquire the essential skills for this adventure.
