A great sea kayak trip suitable for everyone when the sea is calm but much more demanding when there is wind.
Due to big distance is not recommended for paddlers with no experience. If you are a group of 4 and wish to do this trip but have no experience it is still suitable as we can break down the distance to be shorter. Just get in touch with us.
During the trip we will visit Lissos.
Lissos was an important city of Crete dating between the 4th century BC until the 7th to 9th century AD, when abandoned after its destruction by a powerful earthquake that struck the island. The period of its acme, during the Hellenistic Times (330-69 BC) and until the 5th century AD, was a worship center to the goddess Diktinna. In Hellenistic times, the water of lissos considered thermal (it flows yet), and was the reason to be built here a healing temple of Asclepius (god of Health) which acquired great fame and people flocked to be cured, coming even beyond the Greek territory.
Today in Lissos, on the temple of Asklepius, the mosaic floor which was added to the Roman period (69 BC - 330 AD) is partially preserved, and around it are scattered various architectural remains of the temple.
Note: Due to big distance from our premises (almost 4 hours driving just to get there) the trip is not scheduled without 4 bookings.
