DescriptionWe will raft the Voidomatis river, one of the clearest rivers in Europe. It is a gentle river suitable for everyone, with unprecedented beauty with its riverside forests of willow, poplar and plane trees.
Voidomatis river is part of Vikos National Park which comprises one of the most significant ecosystems in Greece. The geographical isolation of the area, the relatively small human impact and the large variety of natural habitats, in combination with microclimatic conditions, favoured the growth of rare plant species, many of which considered endangered.
We will start our rafting descent from Aristi bridge. The duration of the descent is approximately 1.5 hours. The distance to cover is 7 km. In the middle of the Rafting route, we will stop to visit the monastery of Saints Anargiron, a 16th-century impressive building. We continue the Rafting by crossing the Voidomatis canyon to end our trip at the bridge of Kleidonia.
