The idyllic islands of Paxos and Antipaxos are located south of Corfu in the Ionian Sea. From the eastern coast of the islands, the Greek mainland is in sight while an endless expanse of blue stretches out all the way to Italy from the west coast. The Greeks refer to both islands together as “Paxoi”. The name goes back to the Latin word “pax” meaning peace.
And this is exactly what you will find on this kayak tour of Paxos and Antipaxos: Heavenly peace in the middle of a natural paradise with spectacular cliffs, countless bays, and hidden caves, breath-taking beaches, and the bluest waters you’ve ever seen.
Over a quarter of a million, olive trees cloak Paxos in a silvery green shimmer. The oil produced here is in high demand throughout Greece. The island also delights with its unique natural harbour Gaios, whose pastel-coloured houses reveal the charm of its Venetian past.
The sparsely populated Antipaxos is famous for its local wine, which has been cultivated on the island for centuries.
Pack your suitcase and head to Greece! Paxos and Antipaxos will make your island dreams come true!

*We also offer individual dates outside the fixed tour dates for groups with at least 4 participants on request.
You then meet your guide at the accommodation and receive a briefing for the coming days. Afterwards, you have time to explore the enchanting town, buy some breakfast supplies for the next few days, and spend a cosy evening in one of the many delightful tavernas. Overnight stay in Gaios.
Along the way, we stop several times at beautiful beaches where we can swim to our heart’s content, enjoy fresh fruit, and lunch. Afterwards, we visit the island of Agios Nikolaos, located off the coast of Gaios.
Here we explore the Venetian Fortress together before paddling back to Mongonisi. From here we take a transfer back to Gaios.
Along the way, we discover hidden beaches and there is plenty of time to swim and snorkel. After our lunch break, we return to Gaios where you have the rest of the day for yourself.
There are a number of breath-taking beaches on this side of Paxos that are almost inaccessible by land. The unique seclusion of these beaches makes them the perfect place for a peaceful swim.
Along the way, we enjoy lunch together. Our destination is the bay of Mongonisi, from where a transfer takes us back to Gaios.
The gentle rays of the morning light reflect the blue of the sea onto the wild coastline – a truly magnificent sight!
As we circumnavigate the island, it is hard to stop marvelling at the many unique beaches and bays. Far too quickly we have circled the island and must tackle the short passage across the open sea back to Paxos. After the kayak tour, our eventful trip comes to an end.
Individual journey home or extension of your stay on Paxos or Corfu. Should you wish to stay longer, we would be happy to help you book your accommodation.
During this trip, you will stay in carefully selected, cosy apartments in Gaios, the picturesque main town of Paxos. Here you can enjoy the comforts of a hot shower, a comfortable bed, hospitable owners and WIFI.
In addition, all apartments come with a fully-equipped kitchenette, so you can prepare your own breakfast and dinner (which are not included in the price of your stay) should you prefer to cook for yourself rather than trying the delicious local cuisine.
You can prepare breakfast and dinner in the apartment at your own expense or visit one of the many cafés and restaurants in Gaios. All drinks are not included.
The tour itinerary given here is therefore only a guideline. It can be modified on site after consultation between the group and the guide if the weather or the performance level of the group requires it.
The safety of our guests is always our top priority. Our experienced guide knows both islands like the back of their hand and will make every effort to find suitable alternatives should the planned itinerary not be possible due to extreme weather conditions.
Each participant will receive a detailed briefing about the use of the equipment and energy-efficient paddling techniques at the beginning of the trip. Our guide is a certified kayak guide and of course, has first aid training and is also trained to handle emergency situations.
During the trip, they will be happy to advise you on how to optimize your technique. We will check with you before the trip whether you have enough experience to handle a single kayak or whether a double kayak might be a better choice for you.
We also recommend packing as light as possible, as heavy luggage can quickly become a burden. Below you will find a short list of things we recommend bringing with you. This is only a guideline, and you can of course modify it according to your own needs.
880€ per person for double occupancy of the apartment
