A Different Perspective

Join us as we take to the Mediterranean through the Italian Riviera and Cinque Terre by the paddle power of your kayak! Warm waters and sunbaked beaches fill our days as we discover the five tiny villages that Cinque Terre’s name is derived from—all awash with pastel-colored buildings and houses neatly stacked along the harbors and hills. We can’t wait to discover the pounding heart and soul of this dramatic region on the west coast of Italy together.

Live la Dolce Vita

Olive Groves and Lemon Trees 

As each village unveils itself, we exit our kayaks to explore winding alleyways of ancient cities and terraced vineyards and enjoy sumptuous, authentic regional food and drink. Each adventurous day is followed by a relaxing evening, where together we soak in the quintessential Italian atmosphere that is life at the sea’s edge.

This trip was so well planned and organized that we really got a lot out of those 5 days. Amazing kayaking, beautiful scenery, knowledgable guides, wonderful food and accommodations. Touring the Cinque Terre by sea and by van allowed us to see the beautiful hillsides, towns, and orchards from above and below. It was a great way to travel this very special region.”

Trip Details

Know Before You Go

Click HERE for all of the logistical details you’ll need to know prior to departure—including the packing list, arrival and departure details and suggested tipping information.

This trip starts in Genoa, Italy (airport code: GOA), and finishes in La Spezia Centrale Railway Station.


Reaching San Fruttuosso di Camogli will be dependent on the group’s pace and skill level. We will paddle from Sori to Punta Chiappa and, if everyone is energetic and in favor, onward to San Fruttuoso and back. We will then drive to our peaceful agriturismo to unwind.

Depending on the sea, weather and the group’s energy level, we can circumnavigate the lushness of Palmaria Island on Day 6.

How We Support You

Ready for a big adventure? We’re in it together. On this trip, we embark on a sea kayaking expedition intended for advanced novice paddlers and above (it’s not a trip for beginners). You should be very comfortable in a kayak and/or have paddling experience (canoeing or rowing). This is a seven-day paddling adventure on the Mediterranean, which means there might be varying sea conditions and weather to contend with. Yes, it’s a challenge, but you’re never alone. Like thousands of women before you, you’ll draw on strength you didn’t know you had and come out feeling like the goddess you are.

Still have questions or concerns? Let’s talk about it.
