Description - What to expect

Mount Pelion Via Ferrata Canyoning is a route designed and opened by Hellas Canyon, in one of the most beautiful spots of a Pelion canyon. This unique route, parallel to powerful waterfalls and natural pools, is a heaven-like experience.

The route is fully secured with 148 iron steps and handles to help participants reach the finish line at 300m. Once at the top we take a rest and a snack is offered while you are relaxing under a lush beech tree forest overshadowing the canyon.

On the way back you can either return via the Via Ferrata route or with canyoning of 5 abseils, jumps, slides, flying fox, and swimming in large lakes. This is a magnificent natural park for an amazing adventure in the mountain of Pelion.
