Tour overview

Rafting Arachthos is a unique rafting experience, an easy and beautiful descent, ideal for beginners with some light waves, repeated turns and 2nd to 3rd-degree crossings.

We start our descent at the bridge of Politsa in Abelochori and end in the bridge of Plaka* (very recently destroyed by floods and in process of reconstruction). The entrance to the narrow canyon of Arachtos is truly imposing, with the highest pitch reaching 700m. We see many springs coming out of the rocks from chinks, and rare birds nesting in the remote rocks of the canyon.

Highlights of Rafting Arachthos:

  • Arachtos river with its unique narrow canyon
  • Springs running down the narrow walls
  • Rare birdlife nesting in the gorge
  • Fun rapids
  • Pass by the destroyed Plaka Bridge

* About the bridge of Plaka:

It used to be the largest one-arch bridge of Balkans.  Built in 1866, with a width of 40 meters, and a height of 19 meters was a point of attraction for the area.  It was destroyed by the floods of January 2015. The attempts to find the missing pieces and reconstruct it has already begun.
