Day 1: Arrive in Milos by ferry or flight; transfer to Adamas, (originally Adamanthos, possibly named for a Minoan prince of Crete), the port town of Milos. We plan to spend the afternoon on our introductory kayaking lesson and enjoy an orientation to the beautiful waters of Milos Bay. Welcome drinks during sunset and dinner follow when we'll share plans for the amazing week to come. (D) Day 2: After breakfast and checkout, we head to the water’s edge and prepare for the day's paddle. From Adamas we paddle across the 2-mile harbor mouth and head west to Cape Vani. We’ll paddle south after rounding the Cape to explore the remote beaches and capes of the west shore. Our take-out point for the day is at Agios Ioannis bay. Packed picnic lunch. (B,D) Day 3: Today we round the southwest corner of the island and head east. We’ll paddle past the most impressive arches, caves and electric blue water on the entire island, beautiful Kleftiko, once a hideout for pirates who concealed their vessels in small fjords behind these picturesque rocks. We land on the beach of Provatas steps from our rooms. Dinner tonight is on your own with a short drive to the main village on the island, Plaka. Packed picnic lunch. (B) Day 4: A short paddle today from Provatas along the south shore east to the remote village of Paleochori. Our cappuccino stop at Kiriaki beach allows plenty of time to explore. Sandy beaches and warm hospitality await at the Artemis studios. A festive dinner on the beach in Paleochori includes geothermal cooking from the vents along the beach of this volcanic island. (B,D) Day 5: From Palechoro we paddle east rounding the southeast corner and heading north exploring the steam vents, mineral pools, and caves that seawater, volcanic activity, and the Greek gods have sculpted over the centuries. Catacombs and the ghostly ruins of an impressive sulfur mine both speak to Milos' ancient past. The paddling day is highlighted by the crossing of the channel over to Kimolos, the northern neighbor to Milos, whose bright cliffs have given it the name of the "The Silver Island". If time allows, we’ll hike to a scenic view spot on Kimolos and watch as the sun sets over Milos. Our evening accommodations at Aliki overlook our “home” island of Milos. Packed picnic lunch. (B,D) Day 6: Today we’ll circumnavigate the entirety of Kimolos before returning to Milos. At one of the many remote beaches, we’ll stop to enjoy a picnic lunch and then float over the ruins of an ancient city whose walls are visible on calm days. Crossing the channel, we'll keep an eye out for a pack of small wild dolphins that have accompanied us before. Back on Milos, we’ll stop at our favorite seaside taverna in Apollonia. Packed picnic lunch. (B,D) Day 7: With one circumnavigation complete, the second awaits. The north coast with its many beaches, offers immense caves, arches and rock formations providing us ample opportunity to stop and enjoy the stunning beauty. The Papafragas caves are a short paddle from Apollonia and offer what many call the best caves on the island. Near Sarakiniko lies a shipwreck dwarfing our kayaks in comparison and providing just a glimpse at the power of the Mediterranean. After we paddle west past the bay of Firopotamos we’ll head around Cape Kabanes south into the large bay of Milos. We’ll return to Adamas circumnavigation complete. A final dinner together concludes our week-long adventure. (B, D) Day 8: After breakfast, we’ll then transport you back to the Milos airport/ferry by 11:00am allowing you to make necessary connections. (B) * Note: This is our intended itinerary. As with any adventure travel, the forces of nature can be unpredictable, causing us to make adjustments and changes to the itinerary. Rest assured that our many years of exploring have provided us with numerous options if changes need to be made. If it is too windy to paddle, various hiking, cultural and historical options will make you glad for the winds.
