In search of Dolphins - breathtaking 5-day kayaking expedition, Lesvos Greece

If you want sunshine, the shimmering sea, idyllic beaches and an active escape far from the maddening crowds, THIS is the trip for you. Our 5-day kayaking expedition will take you on a true adventure to explore the very best of the Greek Island of Lesvos. 

On our journey we will visit the cobblestone lanes of Ancient Molyvos, draw water from the famous church-well in Petra, soak our muscles in the natural mineral hot springs in Eftalou and also visit the quaint seaside village of magical Skala Sikamnea...and if we are lucky we will spot the famous pod of Lesvos dolphins.

We will live on healthy Mediterranean food and maybe even sample the famous locally produced Ouzo. Above all you will experience a deep restoration of body and soul as we slip into the natural rhythms of the tides, and at the end of the trip feel like you are 16 and on top of the world again. Come join the adventure – you will be so glad you did.

Unbeatable value at £450 for 5 days - including all accommodation, transfers, kayaks, access to thermal baths, full-time guide, and all meals that are self-prepared (drinks and going out to tavernas is for personal expense)

3 trip dates to choose from

23rd - 28th July (Tues - Sunday)
28th July - 2nd August (Sunday - Friday)
11th - 16th August (Sunday - Friday)


A bit more about the experience:
We will be a small group sharing the adventure of a 5-day kayak journey, at one with nature, on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Greek coastline. We use high quality double kayaks which are very sturdy and easy to paddle. Each double kayak has packing space for your clothing, food and camping gear. All safety equipment and dry bags are provided. You need to be of moderate fitness to enjoy the trip, but don’t have to be super woman, nor do you need to have prior paddling experience. We will use the first afternoon before we set off to get comfortable and competent in the kayaks.

Typically, after breakfast each morning we paddle for a few hours and in the afternoon take a break to swim, fish, snorkel, swing in hammocks, read, sleep in the shade, have lunch and just relax. Once the heat of the day has passed we paddle the second leg to our destination for the night. Some evenings we will wild-camp, pitch our tents, cook under the stars and chat around the campfire until bed-time, other nights we will stay in small Greek hotels and eat at the local Greek Tavernas – the food is gorgeous and fresh and healthy, and above all delicious, especially after a day on the water.

Other highlights also include a visit to the church ‘Of our Lady of the Sweet Kisses’ in Petra, walking the cobblestone lanes of ancient Molyvos and sundowners at Congas beach bar. You can also look forward to a massage and a soak in the hot springs at Eftalou and to spending a relaxed afternoon in magical Skala Sikamnea with its quaint fisherman’s port. We will end the trip in Mytilini, for a final muscle soak in the mineral-rich thermal baths before our last supper at a local Greek Taverna.
The true highlights of the trip are really to be found in moments of absolute peace and quiet on the mirror still water, the feelings of well-being after a day of kayaking and enjoying a well deserved meal in the company of new-found friends, falling asleep to the gentle sound of the sea and waking to the sun rising over the water. It is the stuff dreams are made of….

Getting to the start: We offer a pick-up service from Mytilini and Kalloni on the first morning of the trip and transport you across the island to Petra (this is included in the price)

Finish: We finish in Mytilini on the fifth afternoon – your hotel accommodation for this night is booked in Mytilini (this is included in the price). The main airport is a ten minute taxi ride from there.
