This week is about developing and working on your kayak skills in a beautiful small island in the Ionian sea, Ithaca. If you want to fast track your experience, knowledge, skills and increase your confidence, then this course is for you! There will be plenty of opportunity to do rolling as well as honing in your technique for forward paddling with a Greenland paddle in all conditions.
Explora has teamed up with Patrick Moore from OneMoore Adventure to bring this unique paddling week to the 2017 kayaking calendar.
Five days of Greenland paddling around Ithaca with skinny sticks (Greenland paddle), the highlights of the Ithacan coast in daily outings with 6 nights B&B ins hared rooms (individual rooms also available).
Explore the elegance and ease of Greenland strokes; engage the extensive Greenland rolling repertoire. This small, unspoilt island has a unique and spectacular coastline. Paddle the clear, blue Mediterranean waters Greenland style; explore sea caves and cliffs; relax on deserted beaches; explore uninhabited coves.
Each morning we meet at a cafe at 9.30am for breakfast and to make a plan for the day, go over individuals’ goals and discuss our learning objectives. We will put those into practice during the day, get on-going feedback and do an end-of-day review every evening. Each day will build on the experience of the previous and there will be plenty of opportunity to practice those skills that require development.
Departure is at 10.30am and return is around 4:30pm. Each day will involve 3-4 hours paddling/coaching with 2-3 generous stops, for skills practice, snorkelling or swimming, or just lying on the beach.
In the evenings, after a hot shower, enjoy a drink in our cafe or take a stroll around the Village. Then dine out at one of the local restaurants, all within walking distance.
