Yachting Land Adventure
Amazing Acheron River Safari
Get your feet wet wading into the clear waters of Acheron River while enjoying a rafting route through peaceful surroundings and amazing scenery.
After a 5-minute walk through the Old city of Parga you board the coach for a drive to the beautiful Gliki village. This little village sits inland next to the picturesque Acheron River. Acheron was known as the mystical river Styx of Greek mythology believed to lead to the entrance of the underworld and Kingdom of Hades. A 10-minute walk from the village brings you to the banks of the river where the rafting begins. Here you can change into your swimming suit and don waterproof shoes, then wade into the clear waters. The river is very shallow in most of its part and flows peacefully through the spectacular Gliki Gorge. As the gorge gets narrower the water level gradually rises but you will be able to stop at the depth you feel most comfortable with.
Enjoy a relaxing rafting descent in the sparkling waters of Acheron River, ideal even for beginners. As you glide through the tranquil waters, admire the unspoiled nature surrounding you. Observe the surrounding forest and the flowing willow trees while listening to the birds singing above your head. This safari concludes with a bit of wine and a bite of fresh Greek salad with tzatziki and bread at a river side tavern before your return to the yacht.
Notes: We recommend that you wear your swimsuit with a cover up. Bring water shoes as they are not provided on the excursion.
