Acheron River, Parga

4.8
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. Make Acheron River part of your personalized Parga itinerary using our Parga day trip tool .

  • The scenery is excellent but if you want to do activities like rafting you should visit particular winter or spring because in the summer the water level is low and there is also a huge waiting to do anything like riding or boating. In our trial case the wait was approximately 50 minutes for each activity. Nevertheless the shop Cafe-tavern is there serves to relax and drink a coffee.

  • Acheron is a place that we knew of. It turns out it's not organized and beautiful place in Efirze. You can drain a raft, go up to the river source, ride on horseback. Everything in the miraculous circumstances of nature. I recommend in the early afternoon. You can also eat and relax. Take necessarily shoes bathing because the bottom is Rocky.

  • Unforgettable experience deserves to live. We did rafting and nature vicinity. The Gorge is very beautiful and for the more adventurous can swim in cold water.

  • Definetely a must do experience. Bring watershoes with you as the water is cold and with rock. Don't miss the oportunity to jump in the river in more deeper places. Lovely day spent their.
  • Awesome hike up the river!
  • Lovely mytological lands ...
  • My favorite greek river the Akherón (Styx)
  • Beautiful River, that inspired many legends. Shame about the numerous tourist and unsolicited "services" who try in every way to wrest money with mediocre experiences and of short duration. Enjoy the river and the story and forget the rest.
