Canyoning is an extreme sport that takes place in gorges and canyons. Greece has got so many beautiful gorges and canyons with astonishing nature that every year attracts more and more adrenaline seekers to visit and explore. It’s believed to be one of the best canyoning destinations.

Some of the most famous and beautiful Greek gorges are ‘Samaria’ gorge in Crete, ‘Vyros’ gorge in Peloponnese, the gorge of ‘Panta Vrexei’ in Evritania, ‘Vikos’ gorge in Epirus and ‘Enipeas’ gorge in Mountain Olympos.

For beginners, ‘Tsoutsouros’ and ‘Kavousi’ canyons in Crete, ‘Vikaki’ canyon in Zagori, and ‘Viniani’ canyon in Evrytania are a great start. ‘Kleftis’ (Thief) or ‘Portitsa’ canyons near Grevena have a medium difficulty. Calypso gorge in Kissavos Mountain with the beautiful lakes and waterfalls and the gorge of ‘Ha’ in Crete are only for experienced hikers.

At canyoning, you will have to cross gorges by walking rocky paths, climbing, jumping and sliding down waterfalls, and swimming through the freezing water of rock pools and rivers!

During your canyoning trip, you will admire nature, lush forests, waterfalls, rivers and lakes, stone bridges, old monasteries, caves, rare species of flowers and herbs and many more.

Several companies in Greece organize canyoning trips with experienced mountain guides who have extensive knowledge of the area and the possible dangers and provide all the suitable equipment.

Put on your helmet, wear a wetsuit and let your guide lead you to the most amazing landscapes!
