This trips if for experienced sea kayakers only.  You should have enough stamina to paddle up to 30 km per day and average 25km per day for 7 days.  You should be proficient in paddling in moderate wind and waves, as challenging conditions are likely on at least some of the days. You should have some previous experience of camping from a kayak.

Arrival and departure dates to/from Milos

The advertised dates include your arrival and departure dates on Milos. When you arrive in Milos, take a taxi to KAFENEIO PERROS in the village of TRIOVASALOS.  This is the reception of our guesthouse.  On arrival day, after check in, you will be free to explore the village or go to the beach.  There will be a meeting at 6pm to meet the guides and the rest of the group and to discuss the expedition in detail.  

Breakfast is provided on the morning of your departure day.  There is no other activity so you can depart at any time of the day.

If you wish to extend your stay on Milos, extra nights can be booked at Petrinela's Guesthouse, or elsewhere if you prefer.

Camping

Camping will be wild, on some of the most beautiful beaches of Milos.  Most are remote and there are no facilities, not even water.  Tents are recommended, although there is only a remote possibility of rain, as there is often a heavy due. 

Food

The expedition is self catering, which means you buy your own food and do your own cooking.  Usually we each look after our own breakfast, lunch and snacks and prepare a group evening meal in turn.  You are welcome to bring some food from home if you wish, however there is a well stocked supermarket near to our guesthouse.  We will buy 3-4 days worth of food and water at the beginning as there we will be able to restock en route.

Weather

For a month by month comparison of weather statistics in the Cyclades see the Milos weather table.

What to wear

For paddling, shorts and a shirt will be sufficient on most days.  A long sleeve rash vest is recommend for sun protection.  A cagoule (waterproof  jacket) may be useful if its windy or overcast.  Cold weather paddling gear, (wetsuits, dry-suits, etc) are not required.
