We will enter the deep bays of Micros Gialos or Sivota. We will have lunch in a tavern near the hotel and after that we will have time to shower and pack for our flight home.

Around Lefkas there are several possible routes for kayaking, depending on the weather, and the sea, as well as the abilities and wishes of the group participants. We could visit some interesting caverns, desolate beaches, rock walls, and beautiful bays. Part of the pleasure is in visiting different taverns with the kayaks – for lunch and for refreshing drinks.
