Rafting in Aspropotamos (Acheloos) river. The Rafting routes

Aspropotamos I: Agia Paraskevi bridge – Alexiou bridge.
 
rafting29

This is the first part of the river starting near its springs. The route is characterized by narrow passages, sharp turns with fast flow, and the need for precise maneuvers in quite a small space, so that you will be called by your guide to execute precise paddling too… almost continuously! Here, you will have a strong feeling of real participation all the way! A fast and exciting game to the end. We stop half the way to take our breath while enjoying hot drinks and cookies in a very nice spot.

We finish at Alexiou bridge, where a nice picnic in beautiful mountainous nature awaits us. We transfer you back to your cars for your return. Duration in the river, 1.15’ hours with grade III rapids.

Price: 40.00€ p.p.

 

Aspropotamos II: Alexiou bridge – Mesochora.

This is the second part of the river (the physical continuation of Aspropotamos I). The rafting route starts at the Alexiou bridge and ends just before the Mesochora dam. Gradually, as we raft down the river, the valley widens more and more, revealing unique views of the surrounding mountain tops. Every turning holds a new visual surprise of natural beauty! Most usually, the water offers us a blue crystal clear color! This wonderful feeling of being in such a special place with a strong sense of isolation and untouched nature – rarely found in Europe today - accompany us to the end. We stop at one of the numerous white pebbled “beaches” along the ride for hot drinks and cookies, to admire the surroundings and take a long breath.
 
The route finishes a little before the Mesochora dam. Duration in the river, 2.45’ to 3.00’ hours with grade II and III rapids. You are transferred in our vehicles back to your cars at Alexiou bridge for your return, after you have enjoyed the appropriate picnic.

Price: 50.00€ p.p.
