Exquisite beaches, hidden coves, and superb Italian cuisine on Isola d’Elba

We both love this trip. This where Patrizia fell in love with Sea Kayaking. You’ll see why. Beautiful scenery and fantastic food.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Meet & chat

We start the week by meeting and greeting everyone at a get together on the first evening while sampling our first local wine. We get to know everyone very quickly as we only take a maximum of eight people. We have a chat about the weather forecast for the week and make a provisional plan of how the trips might go.

Days 2 and 3 – Kayaking Days

After breakfast each day, there are two days of relaxed paddling on crystal clear, warm water to enjoy. We keep an eye on the weather and sea state, and if the conditions are not good for your paddling ability, we enjoy the views from the vineyards instead, hiking between the Medieval Villages.

Day 4 – Rest day from kayaking

After breakfast, we visit Napoleon’s estate in Portoferraio, the main village of the island, followed by lunch in a local restaurant. In the early afternoon, you are free to spend time shopping or relaxing on the Ghiaie beach. The late afternoon sees us guided by a local expert on their sumptuous food and wine.

Days 5, 6, and 7 – Kayaking days

After breakfast, we again decide which of the 90 miles of coast we enjoy. We cruise around the Tuscan Marine National Park, improving, if required, your paddling skill. Each day ends dining at a local restaurant with handcrafted food and wine.

Day 8 – Departure day

All good things come to an end. After breakfast, we say ciao at the ferry terminal.
