River canoeing in Pinios river. Route: “Through the delta to the river’s mouth”.
River canoeing. Route: “Through the delta to the river’s mouth”.
We meet at the riverside village of Paleopyrgos (at the bridge over the river, just outside the village. This is where our route starts from). Canoeing in the Pinios’s river delta, looks to us that it is our most popular river canoeing route! Probably because it fits nicely in everyone’s likes and taste, for old and young, even very young, families, individuals and large groups! It is a technically mild ride without great promises of adrenaline, yet, it offers amazing nature, relaxation and great sense of tranquility! After all, the arrival at the river’s mouth could be easily described as a rare and very impressive experience that everyone should live through! It does not ask for anything from you, it only gives and it is so plentiful! A great reserve and shelter for a rich bird life, rich vegetation and tree lined riverbanks will lead you through the river’s mouth into the open Aegean sea.
During the summer and autumn months, the river’s delta section is supplied with the water which comes almost entirely from the Tempi valley’s springs. The result of this is an extremely clear blue/green water color, something not very easily expected for a big river. We have a brake while still in our canoes, for hot or cold tea and cookies, allowing the gentle current to take over… A beautiful isolated sandy beach and lots of sea birds welcome us in this special place, where the river meets with the sea! A picnic lunch welcomes us too… Needn’t say that a swim in the sea or in the river or in both is inevitable, even for the most hydrophobic ones, especially during the summer time. Duration in the river, 2.00′ hours.
After we have finished with the picnic and everything else, you are transferred in our means of transport back to your vehicle for the return.
Price: 45.00€ p.p.
The total duration of the activity from the meeting time to the “ready to return home” time, is 5.00’ to 5.30’ hours.
