A weekly program for rafting lovers, on the Venetikos and Aliakmonas rivers. You will see the natural beauty of these two rivers and also learn all you need to know about rafting.
Beginners as well as more experienced rafters can follow this program.


Day 1
Arrival at the airport of Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece (after the capital Athens), which was founded in 316 B.C. by Cassander the brother-in-law of Alexander the Great. You will be transferred to the region of Grevena in North-western Greece and the traditional guesthouse we have selected for you. A welcome dinner will follow in order to meet your guides and be informed about the program's details.

Day 2
Aliakmonas river

Aliakmonas is the river where we will start our program. First we will attend a short course about how we should paddle, the way we must behave in the raft boat and the safety rules we should follow. The activity that will follow for the next 1,5 hour is of second degree of difficulty and will give you the opportunity to have a first taste of rafting, together with practising everything we have learned. At the end we will have a small picnic. The rest of the day is free to explore the natural beauties of the region

Day 3

Aliakmonas river

Today's rafting is taking place near the village Deskati. It is of the second degree of difficulty up to the entry of a most beautiful gorge, in the beginning of which we will admire the monastery of "Osios Nikanoras" perched at the edge of the canyon.

Day 4
Venetikos river

Today we will raft in one of the region's most beautiful rivers, "Venetikos". We'll depart from the bridge of "Eleutherohori" following the river in a unique landscape. During the activity, herds of Cormorants and other rare species of birds will accompany us. We will see black storks that live in the region. After 1,5 hour rafting we end up in a well maintained park outside the village "Agapi", where we can enjoy the unique view and have a small picnic.

Day 5
Venetikos river

Today's rafting starts from the stone bridge of Trikomo up to the park of Pigaditsa. During the route we see four 16th-17th century stone bridges in a green landscape, together with the winged residents of the river.

Day 6
Mileopotamos river

Today's activity is a demanding descent of a fourth degree of difficulty. The descent ends in the gorge of "Spileon", known for its wild and striking beauty.

Return to the airport of Thessaloniki for your flight back home full of wonderful memories.
