This is Greece, home of ancient culture. The local area is called Argolida. It has a very picturesque landscape and also the richest area of Greece for archaeological sites, over 100 within 50 km! You will be flying over some of the sites and will be passing many others. Epidavros is a quaint old fishing village in the Peloponnese situated in the S/E of Greece 1h45min from Athens Airport. The village has been developed by tourism but not spoiled; its income comes mainly from the orange and olives trees. It was a very important town until 500 years B.C., when part of it sank under the sea. The ruins are still in very good conditions and are visible from the air when landing at one of our flying sites. They are easily reached by taking canoes and the snorkelling gear (2 meter deep).
For this cruise we will start and finish at the Corinth canal with the first stop at the ancient city of Epidavros. We will then spend 2 days sailing around the Argos peninsula. Then sailing, flying, swimming, eating delicious sea food on the boat and relax at the hammocks!
With the car support we can chose to drive inland or even hike & fly if you are up for it. We will pass by the ancient Olympia and Kalavryta, a PWC spot! A few more coastal flights and we end in the other side of Corinth canal. There will be a car following us inland so we have our transportation to the flying sites we will visit, meaning you will be able to fly several times a day, depending on the location and the schedule.
Prepare for the delicious mediterranean food: olive oil, fish and fresh local products. We'll set our routes around well-chosen taverns.
Kitesurfing lessons are included for all. We will have the instructors with us and we will carry all the gear on the boat. This will allow non-pilots to come and join as well, so bring your family!
This will be a quite interesting and unusual trip, as we will use the boat to travel around and where all our activities will be centered. We will sleep and have our meals on board.
Depending on the number of the guests we have the option of choosing different boats in order to accommodate our guests according to their needs. You can stay in solo or double cabins, with or without WC or in a hammock between the sails on the deck.
