Glyki – Trikastro/Mesopotamo
An interesting route close to the Acheron River starts from the village of Glyki and takes hikers through forests along the riverbank and eventually through the mountains. Walkers will pass through the Steps of Tzavelaina and continue until they reach the bridge at Despo and finish at the village of Trikastro.
Another option is to follow the river from its sources at Glyki and continue alongside its path. During the summer months, hikers will need to swim across the river once or twice before reaching the “Gates of Hades” outside the village of Mesopotamos. The route is easy, without significant changes in elevation and covers a distance of 10 kilometres. On average, it takes around 4 -5 hours to complete.
