Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Kayaking with Susie Self

Sat 2 - Sat 9 Sep 2023

Atsitsa is an outstanding area for kayaking. Each day Susie creates unique trips which will enhance your love of the gorgeous sea. Experience pine wooded bays interfaced with volcanic rocks which fold directly into the water. Explore caves which can only be approached by kayak. Soak in hidden bays in the warm afternoon.

The island is wild with an infusion of aromatic sage, pulsating cicadas and magical kingfishers. Like Shakespeare’s island it is full sounds that give delight and hurt not. Kayaking crews enhance their adventures with humming meditations and joyful Sea shanties.

Susie welcomes and supports Kayakers from beginners to experienced. She trained in the Sea of Cortez in Mexico and runs kayaking groups in the North Sea.

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.
