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.
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. We gaze at the famous fort of Bourtzi, built in 1473, on a tiny islet 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. As soon as we exit the port, we paddle along the ancient road of Nafplio, under Akronafplia 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, where we stop for a nice swim and to taste local delicacies. Once refreshed, we continue along the coastline back, to reach Karathona beach. 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.
