All about the trip
The tour is a gentle sea kayaking expedition with some other land-based activities included for good measure.
On this trip, we explore the famous Ancient Sunken City and the small ancient Theater of Epidavros. The Argolida’s coastline itself is just breathtaking, with numerous rock formations and pine trees hanging above the calm turquoise-colored waters. Departing from the port of Old Epidavros, we then follow the sublime coastline onwards, passing by dense vegetation, sandy coves, and hidden caves. We stop at various pristine beaches along the way towards the historical sites. Our first site being the small ancient Theatre of Epidavros, which was built in the 4th century BC.
Paddling towards our second site, the ancient Sunken City, you will soon learn why it is nicknamed Argolida’s ‘Lost Atlantis’. Built approximately 1200 BC, and submerged only two meters below the surface, the whole area is a terrific location for snorkeling and for taking beautiful underwater photos.
After admiring the ruins of the Sunken City, we stop to enjoy our first snacks of the tour and visit the farm-shop of Athina. Athina is an Eco-farm that creates many local delicacies; all produced in the same traditional way they have been for thousands of years. The owner of the farm is quite a character and will explain to you the way that the ancient Greeks produced their local cuisine in ancient times.
After we have tried a few light snacks and listened to some tales, we will then paddle-out to a pristine, isolated beach to enjoy our homemade banquet lunch.
After lunch, there will be the opportunity for more snorkeling and sunbathing, or even a brief siesta if you are feeling a bit tired! We will always go at the group’s pace on this trip. When everyone is rested and ready, we will then embark on the return journey.Theatre of Epidaurus Wikipedia
