Athens SUP Weekend

27/01/2019

Surrounded by mountains and sea, Athens is basked in the year-round sun and perfect conditions for SUP (stand up paddle boarding). Paddle around magnificent locations such as Vouliagmeni – the highlight beach town of the Athenian Riviera – and stunning cape Sounio and visit the temple of Poseidon – god of the sea. Our expert professional instructors will guide you to a weekend paddling adventure of a lifetime.

DAY 01 Athens

Welcome to Athens! Your airport transfer will take you to your hotel where our meeting and first briefing by your guide will take place. Athens, the classical beauty, is where history meets the modern day in a mishmash of the ancient and the chaotically new. The evening is yours to explore the city or relax at the hotel.

DAY 02 Sounio

After a scenic 50’ road trip across the Athenian Riviera, we will arrive at Sounio where the awe-inspiring Temple of Poseidon, god of the sea, is located. We will paddle around this sacred region, where according to Greek mythology, Aegeus, king of Athens jumped off the cliff after mistakenly believing that his son Theseus had died. We will have lunch at local taverna serving delicious homemade food and will return at the hotel at around sunset.

DAY 03 Vouliagmeni

Vouliagmeni is the most beautiful region of the Athenian riviera, located a mere 30 minutes’ drive away from Athens center. Our SUPs will be tuned and waiting for you to paddle around crystal waters with stunning views of the peninsula. We will take lunch at a local taverna with sea views and will transfer to Athens international airport.
