Based in the picturesque town of Sivota, this swimming holiday in Greece gives you the opportunity to explore the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea. From spectacular caves and tunnels to stunning underwater topography and marine life, there is always something to discover on this wonderful open water swimming adventure.
The quiet town of Sivota is situated on Greece’s western coast on the shores of the Ionian Sea. The hillside setting and surrounding landscape make for a beautiful base for the week and offer us the chance to explore the area’s coves, beaches and islands. The islands of Mourtemeno, Agios Nikolaos and Mavro Oros all sit between the mainland and the nearby island of Corfu and are defined by their potholed and convoluted coastlines which make them ideal to swim around
The unique nature of this trip means that we actively seek out caves, tunnels and swim-throughs over the course of the week, with our guides often jumping in the water with you in order to lead the way.
This trip is designed for swimmers who enjoy a combination of coastal swims, short crossings and circumnavigations. With plenty of caves, tunnels and swim-throughs to discover, it is a great option for those who like to take the time to explore their surroundings as they swim. Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average daily swim distance of around 4km (split over a minimum of two swims) prior to the start of the trip.
Please note that the below daily itineraries are an example of the swims that may take place during the course of your trip, however, actual swim locations and distances will vary according to local weather and sea conditions. Your SwimTrek guides and local boat pilot will determine the most suitable swim locations each day and will communicate the plan with all guests as soon as possible.
This vacation was one of the best I have ever had: the sea, the company, the non-competitive atmosphere. It was just great. I am ready to embark on another one tomorrow.
Stunning location, this trip completely surpassed my expectations.
Kudos to SwimTrek! The trip exceeded our expectations! We will be back.
