Rafting in Greece

Rafting is particularly popular in countries with wild rivers. As Greece has plenty of wild landscapes and rough rivers, many clubs organize frequent excursions to these areas. The most popular areas to practise rafting are found in Northern

Greece and the Peloponnese.

In Northern Greece, the most popular areas to practise rafting is Arachtos River (Epirus), Tavropos and Megdovas Rivers (Evritania, Central Greece), Nestorio area (descend of Pefko River in Western Macedonia)and Pinios River (Thessaly). In the Peloponnese, you can do some rafting in Loussios and Alfios Rivers (Arcadia).

These rafting paths present various degrees of difficulty. There are some parts that require certain rafting experience and previous capacities, while there are also others that are appropriate for beginners.

In any case, most clubs that organize rafting excursions offer courses for novices. Note that some excursions last for more than one day and may combine rafting with other sports, such as trekking or horse-riding. They also propose and include accommodation.
