Canoeing & Kayaking

Canoeing & Kayaking In Greece
Erymanthos River

Spectacular canoeing and kayaking adventures take place on the Erymanthos (or Erymanthus) River during spring and summer. Those with experience may want to negotiate the Erymanthos gorge between Tripotama and Nemouta. Rafting is also possible.

Lake Kournas

Set amongst a stunning backdrop of mountains Lake Kournas is the only natural freshwater lake in all of Crete and covers an area of approximately 579,000 square meters and is only 22.5 meters at its deepest point. Home to different species including Herons, Cormorants, Ducks, and Warblers. As one of only two freshwater lakes on the island, Lake Kournas is a wonderful spot to take a rented kayak and while away the day atop its calm waters. On site visitors can rent a pedal boat or canoe to travel around the area.

Nestos River and Nestos Delta

The Nestos river has attracted eco-visitors for decades, a perfect locale for hiking, horseback riding, birdwatching, mountain climbing, canoeing, cycling, kayaking and rappelling. These activities in the land of Orpheus take place in magical corners of the Xanthi region like Galani, Komnina, Kromniko, Livadero, Stavroupolis, Toxotes and others. The Nestos Delta in Xanthi, where the river meets the sea, is also another enchanting place with dreamy sceneries. Worth nothing too is the area of Abdera which hosts a unique ecosystem of lakes, lagoons and valuable wetlands.

Parga

There are numerous shops around Parga that rent kayaks and kayaking equipment. Some of the most popular places to kayak are the beaches of Lichnos and Krioneri. Assuming the waves aren’t too high, a trip along the coast from Parga northward is an excellent way to discover all of the small coves and hidden beaches in the area.

Peneios lake

The artificial Peneios lake, which is always calm, provides the perfect place for canoeing and kayaking. It is also a wetland with an interesting variety of birds. Visit the small villages of Souli, Xenies, Roupakia and Agrapidochori for an intimate experience with local culture.

Preveza

Preveza prefecture is one of the most suitable and enjoyable places to explore by canoe. Due to its beauty and tranquillity, Lake Ziros is a top destination for avid canoers. It can also be a great way to get up and close and personal with the birds and other creatures in the Amvrakikos Gulf. For those who enjoy trills, the Acherontas River offers a faster pace. There are many places along the sea near Parga to canoe, including the beaches of Lichnos and Valtos. Due to the pollution of the Louros River, canoeing and other forms of navigation here are unfortunately forbidden.

Rakopotamos, North Pelion

You’ll come across this yellow sand beach with some pebbles on the road to Polydendri, around 8km from Agiokampos. The beach is a popular spot for alternative tourism lovers who enjoy canoeing and following sea trails that lead to waterfalls up to 30 meters high, while at the very end of the beach campers freely pitch up their tents.
