Rafting - Rafting & Trekking (3 days)

This is a self drive, three day programme in the heart of the Peloponnese, in Orini Arcadia (only 2.5 hours drive from Athens) a region offering amazing opportunities for exploration of Greek nature, in combination with a pleasant stay in a picturesque stone village.

The area contains some beautiful landscapes, with dramatic hills, stunning gorges and flowing rivers in combination with traditional stone paved villages. The village of Dimitsana is the base for this programme. Its charm lies in its cobbled streets and tottering houses that are set between the twin hillsides that overlook the Lousios Gorge. The village offers half a dozen churches an excellent Open Air Water Power Museum, a delightful array of traditional tavernas and local cafes.

Day 1: Travel to Dimitsana
Following the instructions for the drive to the mountain village of Dimitsana (no more than 2.5 hours from Athens). Arrive at Dimitsana for your stay at the guesthouse has been reserved for you.

Day 2: Trekking in the Loussios Gorge
You will be met at your guesthouse in the morning by the local guide who will drive you to the starting point of the day’s trekking. This trek offers a beautiful combination of history with nature. The walk is amongst trails of dense vegetation, parallel and crisscrossing the Lousios River. Visiting monasteries that appear to be literally hanging from the cliffs and end the trek at the archaeological site of Ancient Gortys. This is one of the most stirring of all Greek sites as it is based along the rushing river known in ancient times as the Gortynios. A vehicle will take you back to the starting point where you will pick up your car.

Day 3: Rafting
With the directions given, you will drive to our base that is located in a remote mountain village. Here in a village house you will meet the local guides who will prepare you for your rafting experience. Legend has it that the Loussios River is where Zeus used to bathe himself. In the spectacular densely vegetated gorge and in the river’s crystal clear waters, you are invited to enjoy rafting and discover the hidden natural paradise of the area. The descent is of 2nd degree of difficulty, starting from Lousios, continuing to the Alfios River and ending at the spectacular bridge of Koukos. After the descent you can drive back to Athens.
