What is canyoning or else the gorge crossing?
It is a canyon passage following its riverbed, which often requires rappelling and technical means, swimming in the canyon river, jumping in the water and slides. All this in one word is called Canyoning (where it is also the predominant term internationally) or Greek, Technical Canyoning.
The Gorge is very close to Athens and ideal for everyone! In spring and summer, the water is becoming sluggish and in some months, it has no water. The vegetation is wonderful and very dense. The gorge has a total of 16 rappels. Prior to the descent of the gorge, we have one hour’s hiking walk in the beautiful pine forest of Parnitha, towards the cave of Panos. Then we descend the gorge ending to the Monastery of Kleiston.
