Imagine yourself paddling through the warm, clear, waters of the Mediterranean off the scenic coastline of the Ionian Islands. These islands were settled by the Greeks as early as 1200 BC and served as the home (Ithaca) to Odysseus in the epic Greek poem The Odyssey . This relaxing paddle adventure is filled with picturesque villages, rich history and culture, down to earth hospitality, azure waters, and a lot of delicious Greek foods. Spend your days paddling, snorkeling, swimming, and visiting the local sights and villages. Your evenings will be a mix of beach camping with the requisite campfires, barbecues, and storytelling. There will be the occasional comfortable Inn when we aren’t “roughing it”. After our adventure is over, we will spend a day in Athens seeing some of the major cultural sights.
