Set off for a timeless journey through verdant forests and crystalline waters on the legendary Acheron River. It’s a route that has been travelled for over two millennia, believed by the ancient Greeks to be the river which the souls of the dead were obliged to pass in order to reach the underworld. Thousands of travelers would make a pilgrimage to visit the oracle who could supposedly communicate with the dead. All of this took place under the surface of an ancient temple complex which was built mere metres from the riverbank.
The remnants of those buildings can still be seen, though today’s voyagers come seeking an experience with unspoilt nature rather than the deceased. Birds sing sweetly overhead and flowing willow trees graze the surface of the sparkling river. A gentle breeze whispers through the surrounding forest and carries a fragrant aroma of flowers from meadows just beyond the trees. The current picks up and playfully sends its passengers along an exciting aquatic adventure. The rapids decrease and vessels slow down to a peaceful glide through the tranquil waters.
Acheron Kayak invites you to get up close and personal with the river and experience the magical beauty of the wider delta area which still continues to enchant visitors year after year. No prior training is required and explorers of all ages are welcome. We provide the equipment and the river provides an unforgettable journey. All you need to do is enjoy.
