Nafplio Sea Kayak Tour
Nafplio Sea Kayak Tour (semi-private tour) is a flagship tour, paddling from the first capital of modern Greece, with 4 different fortresses in our view. All of them rich in history and folklore stories from the ancient times, to medieval and more recent times.
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 the first historical tales and folklore.
After enjoying the magnificent site, we paddle towards the old town of Nafplio, under the 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, and are rewarded with the breathtaking views of the dominant cliffs covered in succulent vegetation with the fortress as its crown at the top.
We continue along the coastline until we reach a small secluded beach for enjoying our delicacies and refreshment. Once refreshed, we continue along the coastline to reach our base at Karathonas beach, where you can enjoy other water-sports, such as SUP and water-cycle before we transfer you back to Nafplio, which is included in the price. There will be plenty of time for group and family photographs in the kayaks around the cliffs and forts before reaching our finishing point at our beach base.
