A truly unique experience to walk through one of the nicest and remote canyons of Epirus into the river Acheron known from the Greek Mythology as the river ending in the lake from which the ferryman used to carry the dead people in the  underworld.Now days of course all these belong to the past. Instead of the myth you will live a great adventure! Feel the clear, fresh water at your feet, admire the imposing rocks surrounding the canyon and even swim in a small part of the river. The water is so clear so you can drink straight from the rock!  The end of our route with the magnificent small waterfalls is a moment to capture and remember forever!This is one of the activities that words are too poor to describe your feelings and emotions at the end of the day! Make sure you take lots and lots of photos!!
