Guided Day Trip (5-hours)
This multi-activity tour near Athens will rejuvenate your body & mind!
- Swim in the spectacular therapeutic Lake Vouliagmeni &
- Sea kayak in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea!
Vouliagmeni Lake, in the heart of the Athenian Riviera, is the hidden treasure of Attica’s nature. Situated on an idyllic landscape, this rare geological phenomenon is waiting to be discovered. The lake’s brackish waters which are continuously replenished both by the sea and the underground thermal springs offer a natural and unique thermal spa experience. Read more about its healing properties, about the “Dr-fish” that swim in the lake and cleanse your skin, about its unique biodiversity, the underground cave system.
We start our tour at the magical and mysterious Lake Vouliagmeni–a small fresh-water lake fed by an underground hot spring current, creating an ecologic mineral spa. The water of the Lake is brackish and has healing capacities due to its minerals. Rejuvenated we continue our tour.
We start kayaking in the Mediterranean Sea, in charming Varkiza. We kayak along the scenic coast line with its small bays and gaze at islets in the distance. At lunch time you can enjoy a delicious Greek authentic lunch in the pretty fishing harbor of Varkiza (optional).
