A seven-day kayak trip around the islands of Skiathos and Skopelos

The Skiatos and Skopelos Islands are part of the Northern Sporades island group in the Aegean Sea. Once visited, you will want to come back over and over again. Beautiful rocks, caves, rocky and sandy beaches alternate with houses built right next to and over the water. Wild and beautiful, but after all there are enough taverns to quench your thirst and hunger. :)

First Day: We leave early in the morning for the Pelion peninsula, the small village of St. Georgios, near which we will camp for the night. The trip takes about 8 hours.

Day two: We collect the tents, we load the kayaks and paddle to Eleni beach on Skiathos Island. Crossing in good weather takes about 45 minutes. After a short break, we will start to navigate the island from its southern side, the goal of our day is to reach the small island of Tsoukria, 3 km south of the town of Skiathos. We will choose a beach and stay for a night. The place predisposes everyone to do what his soul wants. The total daily passage will be around 20 km.

Day Three: Our goal is the town of Skiathos, from where we will catch a ferry to reach Loutraki port on Skopelos island. Depending on the timetable of the ferry, we will consider whether we will look at the village or leave it for our return. In any case, we will have to load supplies and why not drink some beer? After we arrive in Loutraki, we will have a lunch in the tavern next to the pier or we will climb into the village of Glossa, where you could enjoy an unforgettable view of the surrounding islands. Depending on the time, we will choose a place to stay overnight. The total daily paddling distance is about 17 km.

Day Four: We will paddle to Stafilos, where we will spend the night. We will be able to bathe with fresh water using the showers on the beach, and there is a nice tavern. Along the way, we will stop for rest on beautiful spots, swim, dive into the clear waters and visit a cave and a natural passage on the island of Dassia. The day trip will be around 25 km.

Day 5: Our goal for the day is the city of Skopelos. The paddling distance about 15 km and it will take us about three hours. There are only few places to get on shore, but it is going to be the trip with the most beautiful and scenic views of the entire excursion. Once we arrive in the city, we will have enough time to see sight one of the most beautiful cities on the Greek islands. It is possible to rent a scooter or car and visit the legendary chapel where the movie “Mama Mia” was shooting. We will have a dinner in one of the many taverns. Sleeping ..... maybe on the beach, maybe in a four-star hotel.

Sixth day: We take the first ferry to Skiathos. We unload the kayaks, see sight the city and head to the mainland. We will be staying at the same place where we launched from six days ago. We can have a farewell party on the beach and perhaps thinking of another trip. The day trip will be about 20 km.

Seventh Day: Breakfast, coffee and driving to the city of Volos. Without hurry, we will walk along the coastal street, have a lunch and continue our driving home.
