Milos is world-famous thanks to the Venus of Milos statue exhibited in the Louvre in Paris yet is one of the least known of the Cycladic islands. Milos is therefore the perfect holiday destination for anyone wishing to have a truly authentic island experience. Like Santorini, Milos is also of volcanic origin, which gives the island its enchanting symphony of colours. Bright red rocks, bizarre white tuff formations, numerous caves, azure sea, and hot springs fill the island’s visitors with wonder time and time again.
Besides its enchanting nature, Milos delights with its picturesque traditional fishing villages. The white captain’s houses built directly on the coast with their brightly painted doors and shutters exude pure Cycladic charm. Could there be a more spectacular location for a multi-day kayak experience? During the week you paddle to numerous beautiful bays, into hidden caves, and can watch the house fronts of the coastal villages drift by as you glide through the shimmering sea. Look forward to swimming in secluded bays and picnicking on dreamlike beaches.
The experienced kayak guides lead different kayak tours every day, which usually take between three and four hours and are easily manageable even for beginners. They also bring you to historical and archaeological sites on the island and share fascinating facts and interesting stories about Greece and Milos.
Check-in is possible from 1 pm onwards after which you can unpack and settle in for the next eight nights. And so, your seven days of experiencing Milos begins!
You can enjoy kayak tours for six of the seven days, with one day planned as a rest day. However, on this kayak-free day, you are welcome to go for a hike, spend a day at the beach, or even visit one of the neighbouring islands such as Folegandros.
There are a total of 12 options to choose from, so you can look forward to discovering new and beautiful paddling locations every day during the trip. Your guide is highly experienced and will carefully choose the perfect route each day.
At 9:30 am we leave the guesthouse and take a transfer to the starting point of our day tour and return around 5 pm. During the day we enjoy the wonderful Aegean Sea, gliding through the water in your kayak, powered solely by your own strength.
Marvel at the incredible rock formations that pass you by, swim, or snorkel in the most beautiful bays, which we often enjoy all to ourselves, and look forward to small detours to places well worth seeing. The guide accompanies you throughout the tours and ensures your safety and comfort.
With so many exciting experiences and impressions, your vacation week is sure to fly by, but the wonderful memories of your unforgettable Greek kayaking holiday will stay with you for years to come.
Petrinela Guesthouse is located in Triovasolas on the northwestern part of Milos Island. The accommodation offers nine comfortable and well-equipped double and twin rooms.
Each room has air conditioning, a ceiling fan, and a private bathroom. Some rooms also have a fully equipped kitchenette. The rooms on the upper floor have a balcony overlooking the rooftops of the village and the surrounding countryside. Our first-floor rooms are easily accessible and have spacious patios.
Visitors usually return to stay again and agree that the hospitality of the family who runs the hotel is second to none! This makes Petrinela the ideal accommodation for our kayaking adventure on Milos and offers the warm atmosphere you desire after an eventful day outdoors.
Usually, we do not paddle for more than an hour at a time, after which we take a long break. During the breaks, you can relax or enjoy a swim in the sea.
If the winds are strong, it may take longer to cover the distances. In such cases, good endurance is an advantage. However, our guides can anticipate such an eventuality. They will inform you in advance so that you can always decide to skip a planned day trip if you wish.
In addition to high-quality kayak equipment, you will also receive a safety and technical briefing. We always paddle in a group to ensure everyone’s safety. The best way to learn efficient, energy-saving paddling is during the activity itself. Your guide is always close by to give you tips and advice.
We will not start a tour until we are sure that each participant understands how to handle the kayak and is aware of what to expect along the way.
It is very rare that we cannot go on a day tour at all. Should this be the case, we will either reschedule the planned rest day or try to find an adequate active alternative for your holiday.
