​Rafting the rapids of Aliakmonas river is a special experience for both fun-loving adventurers, as well as for families with children. Each boat carries up to 6 people.

​Water rafting brings all the fun of the water together with the sense of adventure being at the mercy of the currents and wondering what’s around the next bend. Whether as a family outing or an extreme sport excursion, water rafting offers everyone an opportunity to get out, get wet and most importantly have fun. This rafting takes place on the River Aliakmonas in Grevena all over the year and it's near Thessaloniki and Meteora area this activity, with a medium grade of difficulty, can be for families and groups.

Description of the activity:
The name of Aliakmonas comes from the mixing of two words, als (salt, sea) and the name akmon (anvil). According to Greek Mythology Aliakmon was one of the river gods, son of the Ocean and Tethys. This river root is suitable for rafting (going down the river on inflatable boats of special type) throughout the year. The longest in length river of Greece (322 km) is ready to host us for a few (6 km) of his hundred’s kilometers. During this root we will be astonished by the Meteora’s rocks, since geologically the area is similar to the one of Meteora (Rocks composed of psammite, sandstone). The big variety of birds (herons, cormorants, black storks, wild ducks, falcons, eagles etc.) and also mammals (bears, deer, wild pigs etc.) that live in this wild and beautiful at the same time area will make our trip somewhat different from the usual.

Spring, winter with lots of water and impressive waves and summer, fall with less and warmer water (even sometimes under the moon light, Aliakmonas root is something you should enjoy all seasons.
