Day 2: First paddling day

- Breakfast

- We pack (in dry bags provided by us) the stuff we will need for 2 overnights and 3 paddling days. Your luggage will be left in the reception and will be taken back in the afternoon of day 4 that we will be back to the same hotel. 

- Once we are ready we launch the boards in front of hotel.

- Paddle from Horto until Tzasteni beach (10km) passing from Alatas island and Cookie island. We do minimum 2 stops: one for coffee and one for a rich picnic, visiting the ruins of the old monastery on Cookie island.

- We set up the camp at Tzasteni beach (one of the most picturesque places of south Pelion), prepare dinner and overnight. We have the option to have our dinner at a taverna at Marathias or even to overnight in a basic guesthouse. In the second option dinner and accommodation is not included.

Day 3: Second paddling day

- Breakfast, packing tents, cleaning.

- After landing on the main village of the island (which by the way is totally car-free), we walk (15mins) until the old monastery where we will stay. The place is not operating as a monastery of course, but it has been converted to a basic, but very authentic guesthouse, that belongs to the local community. Great energy!

- After a short tour in the monastery, we get settled in the rooms.

- Later we can go, independently, to the main village for dinner (great fish). This dinner is not included.
