Cape Sounion Kayak Tour

Splish Splash: Discover Poseidon’s Temple, Swim and Enjoy!

Are you ready for a change of perspective? Then jump into a two-person kayak and watch the land glide by from the water.

This guided Cape Sounion kayak tour offers unique and truly incredible views of the impressive ancient Temple of Poseidon. For 2,500 years, this landmark of Attica has watched over the southern tip of the Greek mainland. Along the way, you kayak past spectacular cliffs, hidden caves, and secluded bays. Of course, there is plenty of time to dive into the crystal-clear, beautifully blue Aegean Sea.

This tour is completely worry-free: We collect you from your accommodation in Athens and bring you back at the end of the tour. Entrance to the Temple of Poseidon as well as a delicious Greek meal at the cape are also included.

  • Shrouded in legend: Explore the mythical Cape Sounion!
  • Eternity in marble: The Temple of Poseidon has stood at the cape for over 2,500 years
  • Well deserved: Enjoy delicious refreshments and snacks along the way!

Dates

This tour operates from April to November. You can book this tour either during the day or as a sunset tour.


WHAT TO EXPECT
We collect you from your hotel in Athens (either at 9 am for the daytime tour or at 3 pm for the sunset tour). As soon as we have left the city, heading south, you can look forward to a wonderful drive along the Athens Riviera with its magnificent views of the sea.

Our professional kayak guide awaits you at the beautiful sandy beach of Cape Sounion. Here, you are given the required equipment as well as a safety briefing about the upcoming paddling adventure. Once everyone is ready, we set off in two-person groups.

WHAT TO EXPERIENCE
We paddle through the shimmering water along the beautiful coastline around the cape, with imposing cliffs and hidden caves to discover.

On the mini-island of Archi or one of the beaches of Legrena, we make a longer stop during which there is ample time to enjoy a swim in the sea. After enjoying some snacks to replenish our energy, we continue our tour to Cape Sounion.

The view of the millennia-old Temple of Poseidon from the sea is one of the absolute highlights of the tour. Shortly afterwards, our kayak tour ends at Sounion Beach. Once on land, there is plenty of time to visit the temple and enjoy the beautiful view of the Aegean Sea from cliffs.

Entrance to the temple is included in the tour price. Afterwards, you can look forward to a delicious meal in a Greek taverna. On the final 1.5-hour drive back to Athens, you have time to reminisce on the wonderful day.
