Acheron River, Parga

(4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Travel Acheron River, 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. Put Acheron River on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Parga vacation builder.

  • The rich vegetation and the crystal clear waters of the river form a landscape of exceptional beauty. The river is suitable for Rafting in the exit of the Straits near the village Glyki, until its mouth.

  • We were here last summer and in a hot day it is very recommended to swim in this cold river in the middle of some beautiful mountains.  more »
