Schedule

Day 1: Arrival

- Transfer from airport to Kamari beach. Best option is Thessaloniki airport (SKG). The northernmost village of Pelion is not Pouri (as many people think). There are 2 more villages (Keramidi & Veneto), on the border with Larisa provision, which are very remote and not connected with the rest Pelion villages by road. But they have an impressive coastline, which cannot be excluded if you want to do complete east Pelion coast.

- Check in at a local guesthouse.

- Welcome dinner at a local traditional taverna for meeting the team and briefing of the trip plan.

- Overnight at guesthouse.

Depending on your flight's landing time, this day's program can be rearranged including sightseeing on the way or a short activity after you arrive. 

Day 2: First paddling day

- Breakfast

- We paddle from Kamari to Ovrios beach (21km), passing the impressive Veneto sea caves (20 caves within 3km). All that area has the highest level of environmental protection among Pelion. Coffee and picnic is included.

- We set up the camp, prepare dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Second paddling day

- Breakfast

- We paddle from Ovrios until Damouchari and Fakistra beach (24km). It is the day we pass from all the highlight beaches of the east side (Horefto, Agii Saranta, Plaka, Agios Ioannis, Damouchari). We will definitely stop at Damouchari for a short walking tour. 

- Here we have the option either to overnight at Damouchari village (free camping or in a guesthouse, which is not included) or to move on to Fakistra beach.

- We set up the camp, prepare dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Third paddling day

- Breakfast

- We paddle from Damouchari or Fakistra until Kommos (isolated) beach (21km). First we pass from Mylopotamos, which is another highlight beach of the east side. After Mylopotamos we get in a relatively remote area until the place we camp. That is the area of the old stone mines. We do minimum 2 stops: one for coffee and one for a rich picnic. 

- We set up the camp, prepare dinner and overnight.

Day 5: Fourth paddling day

- Breakfast, packing tents, cleaning.

- We continue along the coast until Kastri beach or one beach further, depending on whether we want to camp free or use the facilities of the organised camping at Kastri. That day we will cover a distance of 21km with lots of geological interest, especially around the area of Paltsi and Mortias. Stops for coffee and picnic.

- We set up the camp, prepare dinner and overnight, unless we opt for the organised camping, where we have dinner in a proper taverna (this dinner not included).

Day 6: Fifth paddling day

- Breakfast, packing tents, cleaning.

- Kayaking from Kastri until the Trikeri marble mines. In the beginning we paddle along the area of Platanias and the more away we get from it, the more remote it gets. We pass the big mines and we camp on one of the isolated beaches after (Kanapitsa beach) right on the mouth of the strait between Pelion and Eubia island. Total distance 22km with stops for coffee and picnic.

- We set up the camp, prepare dinner and overnight.

Day 7: Sixth paddling day

- Breakfast, packing tents, cleaning.
