Rafting Lousios is an exciting day of fun and action in a divine river !
Lousios river is where Zeus, father of Olympian gods bathed himself.
Upon arrival to our base in the village of Maratha, our team will welcome you. You will be given your neopren suit and safety equipment to change. You will then enter our bus taking you to the starting point. Your guides will give an introductory lesson on paddling and safety and ..let the fun begin!
We will paddle in Lousios and Alfios rivers, which are of 2nd degree of difficulty. We will make various stops for a swim in the river’s crystal clear waters and for selfies in the densely vegetated gorge. Our ending takes place to the spectacular bridge of “Koukos” from where we will hike to a nearby waterfall. Our day ends with a delicious homemade meal prepared by our one and only cook Katerina !
