Itinerary

Day 0: Arrival in Athens and transfer to Nafplio

Arrive in Athens on Thursday evening and board a bus to Nafplio, the country’s most romantic city. Explore on your own or follow our self-guided tour to discover more about the area.

Day 1: Snorkel and sea kayak to remote beaches

Rise and shine, it’s time for a full day out on the water! Start the morning by sea kayaking around the rugged Peloponnesian coastline on our way to 3 remote islands. Keep your eyes peeled for rare birds and plants that populate the area!

After a full morning in the water, enjoy your homemade lunch prepared by a local Nafplio resident, followed by a leisurely nap in the sunshine.

Once you’ve had enough of the sand and sea, it will be time to head back to town where you’ll have a free evening to explore more of Nafplio and sample the best local cuisine. We highly recommend finishing the night with a seafood dinner with a shot of ouzo!

Day 2: Sea kayak around medieval fortresses and travel back to Athens

On Day 2, we set off from the Port of Nafplio to discover more of this famous coastline. Your expert guide will share the history and folklore of the area as you paddle past 4 medival castles, including Bourtzi Fortress and Palamidi Castle. Then, we make our way towards more remote beaches for snacks and refreshments.

After a leisurely swim, it’s time to paddle onwards to Karathonas Beach where you’ll have the opportunity to play around on a SUP board or go for a spin on a water cycle. Head back to Athens that evening to get a taste of the city’s legendary nightlife!

You Might Be Wondering…

When does this tour begin? When do I need to arrive?

The tour begins promptly at 8am on Friday morning, so you must arrive the day/night before.

Are there any age restrictions?

You must be 18 or over.

When does the tour end on Sunday? When should I book my return flight?

You will be back in Marrakech no later than 3pm on Sunday. Your guide can either drop you off at the airport or in the city center. If you opt for the latter, you will be responsible for organizing your own transportation to the airport later on. It is recommended that you arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before departure, so be sure that your flight is scheduled no earlier than 5pm on Sunday evening.

If I need to book an earlier flight, can I arrange my own transportation to the airport?

Possibly. The guesthouse in Imlil is approximately 1.5 hours from Marrakech Airport by car. You are welcome to arrange your own transportation from the guesthouse to Marrakech after 8pm on Saturday evening. However, it is not possible to depart any earlier than that as the hike into the Atlas Mountains takes you to remote Berber villages that are not accessible by car.

Can I arrive earlier / stay later than the days you recommend?

Absolutely! While it’s difficult to shorten this tour, it is very easy to extend. If you’d like help organizing activities for any extra days that you’re in Morocco, just give us a sh

Afraid of Commitment?

We get it. Sometimes it’s scary booking something months in advance. If you’re not quite ready to commit, then join our mailng list so we can let you know when tickets start running low. Don’t let yourself miss out on this trip of a lifetime!
