    Sea Kayaking in Navarino Bay

    Pack your Go Pro, and get ready to film a family adventure during this Sea Kayaking Experience in Navarino Bay! Suitable for people of all abilities, our guides will give your family a full briefing before setting off.

    As you paddle along the coastline, you will have a unique sea view of Niokastro Castle, pass by incredible natural rock formations, and visit a beach only accessible from the sea. Along the way, enjoy some swimming, snorkelling, and a picnic consisting of tasty organic local foods. The total distance paddled will be around 5 kms over 5 hours, making this a gentle enough activity with plenty of time to really live the experience! Contact us for more details.

    Family SUP and Snorkelling in West Messenia

    Whether you are a family of experts or keen to learn a new skill, you will be sure to love this SUP and Snorkelling Activity. Greece is famed for its crystal clear waters, meaning that as you gently paddle along, you will be able to see fish swimming underneath as you are surrounded by natural beauty.

    The SUP experience will be led by a qualified instructor who will make sure everyone acquires the skills they need to safely begin the activity on the water. With opportunities to reach quiet shorelines, snorkel, and relax, this fun activity is a great way to appreciate one of the natural riches of Greece – the sea.

    Messenia in Greece is full of hidden delights, and during this Hiking and Archery Activity, you will be able to discover some of them. Our guide will lead you through olive groves and past streams to a hidden natural oasis complete with waterfall. With opportunities to take a dip along the way, this hike is one to enjoy no matter what time of year it is!

    After arriving at a glade, our guide will then offer archery instructions, where everyone can test their skills. Would you be as good as an ancient Greek archer? If so, celebrate with a picnic consisting of local products before heading back! This tour is approximately 4 hours long, and the hiking distance is no more than 3 km.
