Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Kayaking, Wild Swimming with Susie Self

Sun 29 - Sun 5 Sep 2021

Susie Self offers Relaxing Kayaking and Wild Water Swimming. Atsitsa Bay is a perfect destination for both activities, providing stunning secret coves, islands and amazing cliff faces to experience from the perspective of the water. The Aegean is exceptionally bouyant and a lovely temperature at this time of year. Susie kayaks in Norfolk with 'The Ladies of the North Sea’, the Sea of Cortez in Mexico and she rowed for her college St Edmunds at Cambridge.

Susie will take your kayaking skills to the next level by demonstrating easy paddle technique. She also swims in the North Sea. "Wild Swimming is all about appreciating the amazing environment around us, it is suitable for swimmers of any level” says Susie.’"We go at a relaxed pace so that at times fun conversations occur, some of which have been life-changing. It has been scientifically proven that swimming increases brain function so please join us for some beautiful adventures."

You were an inspiration in so many ways. I can't quite believe I actually sang (rather than mimed!) Thank you. ‚Äč

I loved the singing, Susie was an excellent tutor.

A maverick, challenging and life altering.

I loved all the courses - especially Susie’s kayaking and swimming early mornings - what a way to start the day.

Kayaking with Susie in the early morning was just magical.
