Sea Kayaking in Pinios river and the delta coast. Route: "From the river to the sea".

dsc00783

Route description: We meet at the riverside village of Paleopyrgos, in Pinios river delta (more specifically at the river’s bridge just outside the village). That’s where we start our sea kayaking journey.

Rich vegetation and bird-life accompany us to the mouth of the river and the Aegean, where we arrive after about 1,30’ hours of relaxed paddling. During the summer months, this part of the river is supplied almost entirely with the waters of the Tempi valley’s springs, giving a clear magnificent green / blue water flow! The location where the river meets the sea is of unique natural beauty and interest. Here, we stop for drinks and cookies, as the place itself calls us to get out of our vessels. One cannot easily resist a swim in the sea or the river, especially during the warm months. After we have enjoyed the most of what this special place can offer, we continue our sea kayaking journey in the sea, along an endless isolated sandy beach, with a panoramic view of Mt. Kissavos, Tempi valley and Mt. Olympus all along! We reach the little seaside village of Alexandrini after 1.30’ hours of paddling, where a nice picnic is waiting for us at the beach. Here is the end of our “river to the sea” journey. You are transferred back to your cars by our means of transport.

How you come to Paleopyrgos bridge: After exiting the national highway to Stomion, Karitsa and the coast (look at “Mountain Action”, “Mt. Kissavos (Ossa) / Mt. Olympus outdoor activities center. Where we meet. How you come.”) and about 2km after Omolion, you turn left to Paleopyrgos into country asphalt road, which leads you straight to the bridge.

Price: 60.00€ p.p.

Note that this is a full day activity, including the preparation, the stops for swimming and snorkeling and the time spent for the cave exploration. To have a clear idea of the overall duration time of the activity, you should add to the above mentioned net time in the kayaks another 3.00’ to 4.00’ hours. This is from the time we meet to the “ready to return home” time.
