* Each of the 3 activities, has a total duration of 4 hours.

Cycling

The cycling activity starts and finishes at Kathara Beach. Accompanied by experienced Trekking Hellas guides on less frequented roads, the group moves first towards the chapel of profitis Amos, to then admire Ladiko and Anthony Quinn bay from high above, then continues towards Traounos beach. The landscape alternates between pine forest and shrubby woodland.

Total distance 30km (can be adjusted to the students' level).

Hiking to Profitis Ilias mountain

The hike begins from the village of Salakos, in central Rhodes. Starting from the foothills of Profitis Ilias (798m), we gradually climb upwards, through a beautiful and well-maintained path towards the meadows, just before the summit. It is a relatively easy hike, "protected" under the shade of pine & oak trees, and takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes (ascent). Our destination is the "Elafos" and "Elafina" buildings, two Italian hotels built in 1930ies, and recently renovated (one of the two). Rich in history and beauty, as they follow the architecture of the Swiss/Austrian Alps, they offer an ideal setting for a short break. Descending towards Salakos we have the opportunity to enjoy the view which is magnificent - through the tall trees we can spot the coast of Turkey, and some of the other Dodecanese islands.

We then return back to the hotel.

Sea Kayak

The activity is carried out by two-seater sea kayaks and kids are accompanied by experienced guides certified by the British BCU Federation in single kayaks. The duration of the trip is adjusted to the group's capabilities.

Our start and finish is at Kathara beach. Before the trip, we'll spend some time introducing sea kayaking to the students so they can acquire the basic knowledge. We then paddle off, to enjoy the clear waters and the rock formations in the area of the famous Anthony Quinn beach.

Masks and snorkels are available to all, for underwater exploration.
