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. Make Acheron part of your personalized Parga itinerary using our Parga day trip tool .

  • A wonderful walk in this river that is inside of the very high rocks immersed in the woods, a bit of refreshment found in sunny Greece. Very nice this walk and there is also the pose to make it riding one of the most beautiful places in that area

  • It is so interesting to visit places which in mythology had an important place.... Like death life, life after death...... It was not by chance that the ancient Greeks chose the springs and Acheron to narrate what the souls of the people become after their death.... In the springs of Acherontas, in Glythe, it is worth to enter the river and walk or swim.....

  • We went on Sunday and we had a super. Anyone who wants to go horseback riding on the way to cross a part of the water with the horse managers. Others can ride the plastic boats and descend the waters with a leader in each light. Experience of life and joy for those who are looking for new things.
