Rafting & Canoe Kayak in Western Greece
Take a vest, helmet, a row in your hand, your position in the boat and... here we go for a unique experience in the water paths of the Greek nature!
Ideal means to take you to places of unique beauty which you would not be able to access otherwise, Rafting & Canoe/Kayaking are a perfect combination of action and contact with nature.
They will "lead" you to deep canyons, next to lush mountain hills, filling you with images of magical landscapes and making you have fun and large doses of adrenaline. You can get to know the rivers of Western Greece which you can come down throughout of the year but under good weather conditions and after it has rained so that the rivers will have enough water.
Mesolonghi, the town of waters.
An ideal place for Kayaking throughout the year. One day of Kayaking in the lagoon and the wider sea area. Amazing view, blue sea, plenty of time for swimming and exploring. A wonderful, fun evening kayaking during sunset will give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful coastline, the water and the experience of sea kayaking.
