Acheron river

View of Acheron river from the bridge of Dala

The river of myths, the famous Acheron river, is really a place of attraction for the tourists and the people who love kayak and canoe, as well as for those who love the nature. It springs from the mountains of Souli and flows into the bay Ammoudia just few kilometres from its springs: it starts like a mountainous torrent, crosses an enchanting gorge, continues its route to the plain of Paramythia and flows into the Ionian Sea.

The rich flora and fauna of the gorge and the river, but also the nearby archaelogical sites make the region an important sight for tourists. It is under the protection of Natura 2000.
