DAY 1

Arrival in Crete. Our representative will meet you and transfer you to your hotel, in the lovely city of Chania.

DAY 2

You leave Chania and head south to Paleohora. After checking in at the hotel, you will get wet with the sea kayaks. Basic lessons will be taught on safety, paddling technique and sea orientation. Then you’ll be free to explore the local beaches and dive in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea.

DAY 3

Today you leave Paleohora and paddle to Sougia. On the way there you reach the ancient site of Lissos. After spending some time looking at the remains of ancient settlements, you then complete your day paddling to Sougia.

DAY 4

Today you leave Sougia and the sea. You walk up the Agia Irini gorge. You have 600 meters to gain on a good path. The scenery is beautiful and also quite different from the previous days. You arrive at the top of the gorge (600 m) for lunch. Then you take the mini-bus to Omalos, in the White Mountains, where you spend the night.

DAY 5

The first part of the walk is the steepest, but the path is very well made and soon you reach the bottom of the gorge and follow the riverbed. You stop to eat your packed lunch, perhaps by the river. After 6 hours of walking, you reach the village of Agia Roumeli, where you spend the night. There will be plenty of time for swimming, or just resting on the beach.

DAY 6

Today you paddle from Agia Roumeli to Loutro. As usual, you leave early in the morning. After about 1 hour, you reach the marvelous small church of Agios Pavlos, where you take a small break. Your next stop is at Marmara Beach, where you have lunch and again the possibility to swim. After Marmara, it takes a little more than an hour to reach Loutro, a wonderful tiny village sheltered in a lovely creek.

DAY 7

Today you paddle from Loutro to Sfakia. You stop at the Sweet Water beach to swim and later you finally reach Sfakia, an old village bordered by the tall peaks of the White Mountains. The mini-bus is there and takes you to Chania.

DAY 8

Fly back home full of wonderful memories from your expedition and Greece.
