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).
