Activity description

Explore the unique beauty of northern Greece with a fun and sporty activity like rafting. Tzoumerka is known for its wild beauty where you can take profit from the crystal clear white waters. On the second day, take profit from the beautiful canyons of the area with a canyoning day.

Rafting in Tzoumerka is an amazing experience combining fun, sports, and coming closer to the wild nature of the Pindos mountains.

In the past years rafting in Tzoumerka has known great recognition among the Greeks and tourists, which led to a rapid growth of different routes to explore the unique river of Arachtos. Arachtos is said to be the best river for rafting in Greece. The adrenaline will lift to the maximum, as you will be passing quite challenging passages. The wild beauty surrounding the river, the magnificent gorges, the waterfall of Glyfkis and the famous bridge of Plaka are only some of the highlights of your rafting trip. 

Rafting in Arachtos river, in the north of Greece, is a lifetime experience. 

On the second day you will have a canyoning experience in Pindos mountains. You will hike in the wild, dive in the freshest water and climb up huge vertical cliffs and passages. Enjoy the majesty of the untouched crossings!


In the activity the accommodation is included in one of the best hotels in the area - the hotel Princess Lanassa. A traditional stone built hotel, with all commodities you may need. Located in Kostitsi village, is only 10 minutes away from Arachtos village, making your adventure excursion ideal.
