Acheron, Parga

4.7
Travel Acheron, one of the five rivers that flows through the underworld, according to Greek mythology. Eco tour companies rent canoes and kayaks for trips down the river through gorges and valleys. However, the water is shallow enough, and the current weak enough, that you can wade and swim down the river in some spots. Locals recommend taking a boat to travel all the way out to where the river joins the sea. If you prefer to stay dry, then consider a tour on horseback near the riverbank or a zipline tour through the trees.

  • Wonderful and beautiful. Make sure not to have the large purse or else to wear, it becomes deeply if you want to go all the way. Please have your packed lunch, the food was there was no big shots.

  • Interesting day out
  • The best
  • nice
  • A river located in the middle of a fantastic nature, which is just 20 km from Parma ... it doesn't seem to be a few kilometers from the sea, and especially in Greece ... Offers more than the opportunity to go up the River on foot, in a freezing water to its source (I think because I don't l I did due to the very cold water), possibility of horse riding, a small way of rafting and a small Angel's flight is ideal for kids. On either side of the river there are also bars and taverns very nice where you can have lunch on the riverbank in very impressive scenery.
