All about the trip
All of the fortresses are rich in history and folklore stories from ancient times, to medieval and more recent times. We are proud to offer this tour that will let you visit breathtaking places with astounding scenery.
The first site we visit is the famous fort of Bourtzi, built in 1473, on a tiny inlet right in front of the port. The importance of this castle throughout the years and the battles it has seen makes it an ideal location for our first historical tale and folklore.
After enjoying the magnificent site, we paddle towards the old town of Nafplio, guarded by cannons of the Old Town’s 1st line of fortification, while the UNESCO World Heritage fortress of Palamidi dominates the view right above it.
As soon as we exit the port, we paddle along the ancient road of Nafplio, under Akronauplia fortress. Our reward will be breathtaking views of the dominant cliffs covered in succulent vegetation with the fortress as its crown on the top.
We continue along the coastline until we reach a small secluded beach to enjoy our delicacies and refreshments. Once refreshed, depending on weather conditions, we can either start paddling back to our starting point or reach our base at Karathonas beach, where you can enjoy other watersports, such as SUP and water-cycle before we transfer you back to Nafplio. There will be plenty of time for group and family photographs on kayaks around the cliffs and forts before reaching our finishing point at our beach base.What Wikipedia Says
