The Northwest Passage Adventures Announces New 2011 Santorini Kayaking Trips. Successful Maiden Voyage Circumnavigates Greek Islands of Santorini & Thirassia by Kayak. The Northwest Passage Adventures is announcing the 2011 dates for its new Santorini Kayaking trip in Greece.

After the success of its 2010 maiden trip to Santorini, the Santorini - Thirassia Greece Inn to Inn Sea Kayak Circumnavigation will be a permanent part of The Northwest Passage's slate of kayaking trips in Greece. It joins the immensely popular "Inn to Inn Sea Kayaking Crete: trip which has introduced thousands of participants to the joys of kayaking in the beautiful waters of Crete. This trip combins the romance, culture and beauty of Santorini with a sea kayak adventure open to all experience levels.

The eight-day, seven-night circumnavigation of the Santorini island group by kayak is an indulgent Greek adventure suitable for both experienced and inexperienced paddlers. In addition to kayaking along the beautiful volcanic coastline, trip participants experience Santorini's world-famous black sand beaches, climb the dramatic volcano in the center of the Santorini caldera, and enjoy the delicious cuisine which has made Santorini famous as a "foodie" destination. A highlight of the trip is a stay in the traditional village that crowns the Santorini's sister island of Thirassia, a unique environment rarely experienced by the average visitor to Santorini. All equipment and instruction by our expert guide staff is included, and even guests with little or no previous kayaking experience can enjoy the trip. After each day's paddling, guests enjoy exploring the charming historic towns of Santorini, including Oia, Fira (Thira), Perivolos, Vourvoulos, and Imerovigli.

“The Greek islands have some of the best paddling in the world. The water is a 82 degrees and a beautiful turquoise-blue,” says The Northwest Passage founder and executive director, Rick Sweitzer, who has been enjoying adventure travel in Greece since the 1970s and directly guiding adventure trips in Greece for the past 18 years. “We combine a world class sea kayak adventure with the shopping, sex appeal, wine and beach going lifestyle of Santorini. We hope you'll join us on this exciting new adventure in Greece.”
