The total distance around the three islands is approximately 160 km. To achieve this in 7 days we must average 23 km per day which equates to approximately 4-5 hours’ paddling per day.

This expedition is for experienced sea kayakers. You should have enough stamina to average 23 km over 7 days and be able to paddle up to 30 km, if required. You should be comfortable with the idea of paddling in moderate wind and waves, as challenging conditions are likely on at least some of the days. You should have practised the T-rescue and know how to do an assisted deep water re-entry.
If you have limited paddling experience, check our Explore Milos Package which will provide excellent preparation for this expedition.
Camping will be wild on remote beaches. There are no facilities and no water supply. All camping equipment, food and water must be carried in the kayak. A strong and lightweight tent is essential. A comfortable inflating mattress, inflatable pillow and 3 season sleeping bag are recommended.
The expedition is self catered – you must buy and prepare your own food for the duration of the trip. Local supermarkets are open daily from 8 am to 9 pm (except Sundays) and have a good selection of packaged and fresh produce.
Advice will be given as to what to buy at the meeting on arrival day. It is recommended that each participant look after our own breakfast, lunch and snacks and prepare a group evening meal, in turn. There will be an opportunity to stock up every second or third day, allowing us to travel light and live well. Occasional stops at restaurants and coffee-shops are a possibility.
Camping stoves will be provided for the group – one per 3-4 persons. The Trangia stove includes 2 pots, a kettle and a frying pan. The stoves are powered by gas canisters with a screw-on fitting, readily available in local supermarkets. You are welcome to bring your own stove.
For paddling, shorts and a shirt will be sufficient on most days. A cagoule (waterproof paddling jacket) and neoprene trousers or similar may be required if its windy or overcast. (See also our recommendations for an efficient packing list).
